Novotel Grand Ambassador, Gangnam vs Hotel Tomgi

by szenchew

Hi Vters,

Need to make a quick decision between these 2 for our Apr 1 to 4 stay.

The $ difference between the two during my entire stay for 2 rooms (4 adults + 1 child) is KRW100,000.

Am aware Hotel Tomgi is a love motel but was told the location is very good. I do not mind paying the extra for Novotel but not too sure about its' location and accessibility. Ideally, we'd prefer a safe neighbourhood where we can roam, shop and try local snacks during the evenings.

Thanks.

Novotel is better anytime, if can afford take Lotte Hotel downtown everything is walking distance.

Thanks Sheanbedi.

Lotte Hotel is way, way out of our budget. Novotel has a 50% off promotion for second room. So, it's great value.

How far is Novotel Gangnam to the city center or places like namdaemun or the likes of it?

stayed in Novotel before, 15 minute taxi ride will bring you to the interesting places

Thanks Sheanbedi. Ibis Seoul at Gangnam has a much lower rate. Unfortunately the other Ibis near to the city center is booked. I suppose Ibis Gangnam's accessibility should be similar to Novotel's?

If you are calculating your budget, please note that taxi drivers will not typically accept more than 4 people (three in back seat and one in passenger seat). Unless the child is small and can sit on a lap, then you may have to get two taxis for every destination.

Stay away from the black 'deluxe' taxis, as they are more expensive. Stay with the gray ones and save some money. A 15 minute taxi should cost you ~8000 KRW.

That's a really useful tip DSwede. I thought the taxi would fit all 5 of us.

Travel Tips for Seoul

I´ve been there just for a few...

by SNOWBIKE

I´ve been there just for a few hours. I was travelling to NZ with KOREAN AIRLINES. I´ve found out that the KOREAN people are very friendly and try to help where ever they can. I think the next time I´ll make a stop for a few days to discover this land and it´s people.

Lotte World

by Jun_Oh

Lotte World reminds you of fairy tales. It's an indoor entertainment complex full of adventure and mystery. The amusement Park and Lotte World Adventure are inside of the dome, so you don't have to worry about bad weather. Magic Island is surrounded by Sokch'on Lake and gives you the feeling of a village in a fairy tale. The Gyro Drop, which gives the same kind of sensation as bungi jumping, is the most popular ride in Lotte World these days. There are always lots events going on at the Lotte World Adventure such as music concerts and rock musicals. If you come to Lotte World before 5:00 PM you can get 40 percent off on your entrance fee. It is connected with the Chamsil Station of subway line 2, and the water fountain there is a popular meeting place.

Koreans are never bored with board games

by iwys

Koreans, especially older people, love board games. There is even one TV channel devoted to possibly the most complicated board game in the world: Go, known in Korean as Paduk.

Yunoni, the game shown in the picture, is simpler and played by all Koreans, especially during the New Year holiday. It involves throwing four sticks down to determine how many squares you can move your piece around the perimeter of the board. It's a bit like a cross between Snakes and Ladders and Backgammon.

There are more!

Making Kimbap

by Ewingjr98

Kimbap is one of the traditional Korean foods. It is similar to Japanese sushi rolls, but kimbap does not always contain fish. I have had kimbap with beef, crab, chicken, and other foods.

To make kimbap, koreans start with dried seaweed for the outer layer. Sticky rice creates the second layer of the food. On top of the seaweed and sticky rice, you will usually find thin strips of lightly fried ham, eggs, cucumbers, carrots, pickled radish, crab, tuna, topped with a little sesame oil and rolled into a "log" about 1.5 inches in diameter. The log is then cut into 1/2 inch wide disks ready for consumption.

mountainbiking --> Namhan Sanseong

by schwein

The Nam is cycling goodness. The best riding I've yet seen in Korea...

Very varried terrain. Everything from steep chundery exposed granite goodness to full on flowy loam with berms, drops and jumps. We usually do beershuttles on the weekend...

Not just DH though, she has different trails and roads to suit any of your cycling needs, be it road, XC, or full on shuttled Downhill.

Namhansanseoung is a provincial park because of the fortress, but bikes are tolerated.
We generally steer clear of the main hiking trails during the later parts of the day because there is so much foot traffic. Be wary of hikers.
