Day 1 Itinerary

Wohoo! Alright let’s kick start this new travelogue series because it’s gonna be EXTREMELY long – 16 days worth of travelling within South Korea so you’ve been warned ;)

Took Singapore Airlines to Incheon this time and can I say how awesome is it to fly on your national carrier ^^

We booked our air tickets 9 months in advance so managed to snag them at close to SGD700/pax for travel during May.

Landed at Incheon Airport in the late afternoon so first stop was to get our airport limousine bus tickets to Songdo. Had to wait for the next bus which was arriving in about 40 minutes so we headed to the convenience store to buy some triangle kimbap (sam gak kim bap) and water. And LINE Friends is everywhere *points above*

By the way, we bought EG Sim data cards at Changi Airport because we were too lazy to book ahead on their website to collect in Korea. Sadly, Stella’s sim card didn’t work throughout the entire trip despite resetting her phone and seeking help from their facebook page so I would suggest that you try renting a mobile wifi device if your budget allows it!

Hand itchy because I bought this LINE Friends T-money card even though I am still using my old Rilakkuma T-money from 2011. Too cute to resist :D

Took KAL airport limousine 6707B (KRW 7,000/pax) to Songdo which took us about 30-40 minutes as our hotel was the last stop before it U-turns back to Incheon Airport. Checked-in at our hotel (review) and then headed off straight towards NC Cube because it was already approaching dinner time.

Checked out the boat house at Central Park which is located directly opposite our hotel. Songdo got really famous because of the Song triplets from ‘The Return of Superman’ and Central Park was actually featured quite regularly on this programme thanks to the triplets. Actually we made sure to stay in Songdo because of this reason too xD
