After having seen tons of k-dramas for the past decade and a recent Army convert (kpop group BTS's fan club), I treated myself to a solo trip as a birthday gift to this enigmatic city. I was quite nervous embarking on this trip as it would be my first trip by myself and to a country whose language I don't speak. Nevertheless, the adrenalin from travelling to a new country soon took over and I found myself loving the experience!
I had done quite a bit of research on getting to the city from the airport and that was a great help! You can easily get a ride to the main city by the airport buses which were so convenient and inexpensive. Luckily for me the bus dropped me literally in front of my hotel (I had no idea about the bus stop while making the reservation!). My reservation was at the Hotel Aventree Jongno for 6 nights for which I paid INR 23,500. I chose this hotel for its location and price, it is located right opposite Jogyesa Temple, a 10 minutes walk from Gyeongbokgung Palace and a 20 minutes walk from Myeongdong.
