      I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me with information on the Lotte Marts at Seoul Station and Jamsil and the EMS courier services available at its store(s):

      1) I know there is an EMS counter at the Seoul Station branch. What about the one in Jamsil?
      2) I would like to buy Korean snacks and food to send home. Does one branch offer more variety than the other?
      3) What days are the Lotte Mart at Seoul Station and Jamsil closed?
      4) What time does the EMS counter close everyday at the Seoul Station branch (and Jamsil branch if they have it)? Are EMS counters open on Sundays?

      This is my first trip to Korea so any additional information you feel I need to know about Lotte Mart and the EMS service would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

      Onward transport from Jeongdongjin

      Kangwon-do Jul 16, 2011 at 12:16 AM

      It seems that Jeongdongjin is more popular with Asian travellers than English-speaking ones... no racism or other offence intended, just an observation.

      I'm trying to combine Jeongdongjin and Seoraksan for a 2-day trip, and trying to figure out transportation links. I've tried the KTO website, but Jeongdongjin isn't listed at all under the bus search. o_0

      Barring driving, is there any direct form of public transport between Jeongdongjin and either Sokcho or Geojin? I would appreciate greatly any nuggets of information, no matter how small.

      Thanks in advance for any answers! :)

      Sokcho Express Bus Terminal VS Sokcho Intercity Bus Terminal - any lodging in midnight?

      Sokch'o Dec 13, 2006 at 9:37 AM

      I will arrive at Seoul airport at 5:30pm on Jan 22 (Monday).
      I wanna take a bus to Sokcho.
      Do you think I should take the 23:30 bus or 20:30 bus?

      There are two bus terminals in Sokcho:
      - Sokcho Express Bus Terminal for 20:30 bus
      - Sokcho Intercity Bus Terminal for 23:30 bus

      Do you think I can still find a motel when i arrive at Sokcho so late?
      without advanced booking.

      I plan to base on and stay in Sokcho and do the following activities:
      - seeing Mt Seoraksan diff areas for two days (e.g. half day trip each trail)
      - visting a ski resort and try skiing for one day
      - going to Hwacheon Mountain Trout Festival for one day

      Going back to Seoul on Jan27.
      overnight in Seoul then fly back to Hong Kong on Jan 28 morning.

      How to go to Hwacheon Mountain Trout Festival?
