It’s gonna be a summer in Korea. Most Filipinos do not go to Korea during the summer because we experience it the whole year round.
What brings me to Korea this time of year? Boryeong Mud Festival! But, as we were too late in planning, most hotels / resorts along Daecheon Beach have already been booked. Fortunately, we found a hotel that still has room for 2 nights. So, before moving to Boryeong, I’ll be in Seoul for the first 3 nights.
Day 1, July 20
Arrival in Incheon Airport
Transfer to Chungmuro Station to check in

I still have a free day. I am looking into hiking the Seoul City Wall in the morning.
In the afternoon, I’ll drop by COEX (for EXO’s new album), Insadong (for the cheap but beautiful bags), and shopping for Goblin items.

I was happy when I learned that one leg of the FIVB World Grand Prix will be hosted in Korea. I made it a point to ensure that I will be able to watch one day. Here’s to hoping that I will be able to secure tickets!
I am also keen on hiking the Seoul City Wall for the view of Seoul. But that isn’t final yet because I am considering the weather. Do I really want to hike in the middle of summer?
I’m looking forward to an eventful summer! And I am hoping to have a great experience in the festival.
