Travel Diary: Seoul Tower

Seoul Tower or Namsan Tower is one of Seoul, Korea’s most famous landmarks. This 777 feet tall communication and observation tower sits atop Namsan Mountain and marks the city’s highest point. It’s the perfect place to bid Seoul goodbye, don’t you think? You can reach the Seoul Tower in various ways–by car, bus, subway and even cable […]

Travel Diary: Experiencing Korea’s Old And New

After our trip to Namhansanseong Fortress, our guide took us for a short walk around the neighborhood. She said we had a special lunch set up just a few miles away. It was a beautiful neighborhood full of trees and traditional-looking houses so I didn’t really mind the walk. It felt like I was in a K-drama […]

Travel Diary: Namhansanseong Fortress

Our second day in South Korea with AirAsia and Korea Tourism Office started with a visit to another fortress called Namhansanseong, which literally means “South Han Mountain Fortress”. It’s located in the province of Gyeonggi-do but in a different city called Gwangju-si. This soon-to-be UNESCO World Heritage site is believed to have been built during King Onjo’s […]

Travel Diary: Gyeonggi-Do, Korea

As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, Gyeonggi-do is a fascinating place. It’s where beauty, fun and old town charm are all rolled into one. You can even say it’s where the past, present and future come together (a statement that, in my opinion, is applicable to most of South Korea). I already showed you “the past” through […]

Travel Diary: Hwaseong Fortress

When you say South Korea, Seoul is usually the first city that comes to mind. In fact to a lot of tourists, it’s the ONLY city that comes to mind. But just like any other country, South Korea has a lot of hidden gems aside from its capital that are worth discovering. One of which […]

Plaza De España

My friend Sandy and I wanted to squeeze another city in before we wrap up our Spanish escapade. Since we were already in Madrid, we decided to take a day trip to the beautiful city of Seville which is just 2 hours way by AVE train. Boy, was the trip worth it! Every corner of […]

Plaza De Colón

While shopping around Barrio De Salamanca, Sandy and I chanced upon this picturesque plaza. As much as I’d like to pretend I knew what this place was at that time, I had no clue. After consulting with my friend Google, I now know that this is Plaza De Colón or Columbus Square–a plaza dedicated to […]

Hidden Gem

I am in love with this quaint café! I’ve been to Cebu multiple times but it was only until January when I flew in for Sinulog and Islands Souvenirs that I found out about La Vie Parisienne. The wooden floors, weave chairs, plush pillows, pink blossoms—practically everything about this place is a dream! This is […]

Paradise

Another new adventure awaits! After my trip to Switzerland for Parmigiani Fleurier, I was in dire need of sun and sand. Nivea’s invite to El Nido, Palawan (which I’ll talk more about on my next posts) couldn’t have come at a better time. It was my first time at the island so when I finally […]
