      anyone can advise how to get to N Seoul Tower by subway train? Which station to alight and walkable distance to reach there?

      Thks in advance.
      Myeongdong station. It's about 15 min walk to the cable car station or you can choose to walk up to N Seoul Tower. The cable car station is near the China embassy.

        • Hi ladies, I'll be going on a 7D package with CTC in Jan. Can't wait! We'll be going to some places we don't need like a korean herbal shop and some amethyst factory... as well as a beauty product showroom. Does anyone know what kind of brands are sold in the showroom? I'm mainly interested in getting some lioele and brtc products. Or where else can I get them? Myeongdong? Thanks!

                  actually visiting korean ginseng and amethyst shops aren't that bad. the introductions were informative and i take them as new knowledge. the sales people i meet weren't pushy at all, so the overall experience was pleasant.

                  different beauty showroom sells different brands, you will have to ask your tour guide before hand if the one you are going have the brands you want. if not, you can always ask your tour guide where to get them

                    thank you!! good and no good when it snowed in everland. cos' all outdoor rides were closed due to the snow. but equatorial creatures like me don't care about the rides, we want SNOW!!!


                    waahaahaa... mount sorak was mad cold!!! i looked ridiculous with scarf and neckwarmer plus face mask. but it was the place where i took many pics with nice scenery

                    • Just a word of caution: If you are going to get those ginseng stuff, it will be pricey. I got it from a shop recommended by a korean lady who brought us on our DMZ tour, it's at namdaemon. hoehyeon line 4 (exit 5). There are a couple of ginseng retailers there, all pretty alright, I think. Of get from the departmental stores, its still cheaper than those they bring you on touristy places.

                            YES YES!! i really had a unforgettable time.

                            i went with ASA that time cos' Five Star was fully booked. Five Star got cheese making session, right?

                            my boots aren't waterproof. they did get a bit wet when snowing, but they dried up pretty fast while we were back to the coach. i went early dec and it only snow 1 day out of 8 days of visit, so i didn't have much problem.

                            not sure of the weather in feb, but if it snows heavily, you'll need to get a pair of proper boots for winter. i heard that UGG is not bad but they are not sold in s'pore. Universal Travellers do sell some, you'll have to pop in to check out

                                yes, the type with inner fur linings.... but i thought those doesn't get wet easily one of my tour mate wore them and she "survived" pretty well in snow without getting wet.
