Satisfying 5 Senses Trip in Korea

Satisfying 5 Senses Trip in Korea | by Meheartseoul
We felt bad for leaving our 2 kids at home when we're enjoying our Korea trip in 2012...

Ups, I didn't blog for Busan, Gapyeong and last 2 days in Seoul.

Therefore, we brought them for their maiden trip to Korea in September 2013. 

But again, we'd to leave them as I won myself a flight ticket from 11street Korea in 2014. My hubby joined me as he was afraid I might get lost if I travel alone. 

Then we planned to have white Christmas with kids, however it's impossible as almost everyone applying leave on that month. The only leave slot available was end November to early December. So no choice but to take it~!

Until now, it's still hard for me to believe that I won VIP Invitation Tour. This fully sponsored by Visit Korea suddenly surfaced before our family trip~! ^^

Currently, I was in the middle of making big decision. First, it just ring a bell that it's a nice idea. However, considering our current situation it's quite hard to make it come true, so we decided to put our excitement on hold. Listened to suggestions and did a lot of homework and realized that  we'd to execute it now considering our ages and others factors. Hopefully everything will be smooth sailing~!^^ Thinking too much also won't solve the problem, so just let nature take its course.

 Now, let me continue to blog our Satisfying 5 Senses Trip in Korea.

Although it's Scoot business class but frankly speaking
Korean Air Economy Class is better and nicer.

The legs room is maybe about the same, but there's no movie to watch. The service for Business Class is very limited. I ordered 4 different meals but they gave us all the same and we couldn't change them. Even with discount I think it's not really worth it...

Incheon Airport | www.meheartseoul.blogspot.com 
 Reached Incheon Airport around 9:15pm, and it's super long queue
at customs clearance, and by the time we claimed our luggage 
it was already 11:00 pm.

Although I knew that we wouldn't be in time to take AREX Express Train as the last train is 21:40. Actually I was planning to spend a night at 'Spa On Air' jjimjilbang, but then my daughter and me might not be able to sleep. Therefore, I planned to take airport bus to Seoul and stay in cheap hotel there.

last late night buses to Seoul  mostly ended around 23:00 pm.  | www.meheartseoul.blogspot.sg
Didn't know that the last late night buses to Seoul
mostly ended around 23:00 pm.

Pretty awesome we missed the bus, and left with no choice but to take normal train to Seoul. But considered our and I think it was also the last train!  

One day gone just for traveling from Singapore to Seoul. Thought that we'll have more comfortable and cheaper flight (after discount). It's actually not the case, as we might ended up spending more money for hotel and taxi if we missed the last train. Next time, we need to take note on the flight timing especially now knowing that not all business class has the same standard.
