Does anyone know the website for the G Stay Residence hotel, near Camp Kim? I find the hotel on maps, trip advisor & hotels.com but cannot find the actual hotel website, despite searching on google etc. On the Korea tourist sites, several hotel finding websites are listed but I can only pull the hotel up on 1 of the sites but that says the hotel is not available for my dates (April 12-17, 2015). The Korea tourist site lists Agoda.com, Koreahotel.com, hotelpass.com, hotelscombined.com, worldhotel.co.kr, & pacakagekorea.com.
I'm going to Korea during Winter, staying through Spring and returning in Summer. Any advice on how to pack for the 3 seasons?

My friends and I are planning to visit Seoul next year. We are 4 mommies and 3 children (7, 8 & 9).
Does any of you know service apartments with price range between USD 2700-3200 for 8 nights?
I prefer the apartment near subway station and not far away from shopping area such myeong dong, namdaemun, dongdaemun market. Gangnam is also an option (I stayed in this area last year).
Thank you in advance.
Hi! I'm going to stay at Renaissance Hotel in Yeoksam area for a week in September. And I'm wondering if there's any coin laundry or speed laundry near by the hotel since it seems like the dry cleaning service in the hotel is quite pricey.

My friend and I are interested in purchasing Eelskin Wallets, Bags and Shoes.
+ western clothes (ladies). We would be size 14/16 in Aussie. clothes, so that
would be XXL in Korean sizes, I think.Which area(s) would be the best places
to find ready-made clothes is our sizes.
Where would we find quality Eelskin Ladies/Gents Wallets? Many years ago I
visited Seoul and was able to order Eelskin shoes....I am hoping it would be possible
to order shoes and collect when we return end August? If I have the design of a
special Ladies wallet, where do u suggest I go to order these products.
This is a great website, I hope u will be able to help us. We will stay one o/night
near airport, believe it is possible to come to city by train. Any tips appreciated,
also best currency if not using CC. T/u, Mary

On my upcoming Asia trip, I'll be landing at Incheon and will have 16 hours before my next flight to Hong Kong. 5:30pm to 10:00am. Not ideal, but I'm excited about spending a fruitful evening there, as I've heard good things and that it's a 24-hour town.
My question: what do I do? Traditional tourist sites are probably mostly out because of the hours, but I'm certain I can find a few things to do. Any ideas?
I have a 6.5 hour layover in the Seoul airport this September and I am wondering if this is enough time to go into the city and have lunch/explore for a bit? Any recommendations on what to see given my tight time schedule?
Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeok Palace, Bukchon Village, Jongmeo Shrine, Bongeunsa Temple -- are all of them adjacent to each other?
Can I cover all of them in one single day?
Is it essential to take a tour guide or something? I am interested in traveling alone.
I am going to stay at President Hotel. How long it will take from there?
Plz help me in making a 1 or 1.5 day travel plan for all these places.
What is the best way to get to Korean DMZ from Seoul Lotte Hotel/Departmental Store? Do I essentially need a tour guide or something or can I go there alone? How much time it takes to get there and how long it would take to visit the whole place? I am looking for a half day trip.
my only time to get to Korea would be by January 2015. it would be my first time.
1- Can you help me by telling me what to expect in Korea by then with that weather?
2- Will i be able to go through Everland and enjoy the place?
3- My friends advised me to go for Guesthouses in Myeongdong, do you have any specific guesthouse i can book to? nice and clean even if its small place.
4- What do you usually do in Korea during this winter month so i can enjoy my short stay?
Thanks for helping me here...

Hi, I am from New Zealand and will be travelling to South Korea for a friends wedding in August. The wedding will be in the district of Incheon however I will be staying in Seoul for a little over a week. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations as to whether I should stay in Incheon or down town Seoul? And any recommendations for hotels suitable for the first time, young 20's traveller. I am a first time visitor to Korea so I have no idea what to expect i.e transport, getting around. So it should be very interesting, also if you have any recommendations for things to visit/see/do while I am there, would be greatly appreciated, Thank you!!

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!
I will be in Seoul the weekend of April 5-6, I think I'll go to the DMZ one of the days and would appreciate recommendations on tour groups . I would also appreciate recommendations on what to do on the other day. Thank you in advance for your help.
