    • Need help for Hiking Itinerary in South Korea

      Seoul Apr 21, 2014 at 9:24 PM

      Hi, it's my first time doing a DIY trip to South Korea. We will be staying for a week and we want to hike Mt. Hallasan and Mt. Jirisan on the first few days. As much as we want to see Jeju and Jinju more, we cannot stay until the 14th. Please help me check if there should be any adjustments to our itinerary. I'm also worried we won't find a minbak on the spot. Would it be easier to just book a hotel before going to Jinju and Jungsan-ri?

    • Lotte Mart & EMS

      Seoul Mar 30, 2014 at 12:02 PM

      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!
