Booking Method :

Recently Seoul tourism organization has launched a website called B&B  (Bed and Breakfast) for guest house information and booking in Seoul. 
 There are several ways to book a guest house in Seoul. Every guest house has it's website and different booking procedure. For now Seoul city website (link) doesn't provide direct booking and payment method. It will redirect you to guest house webpage where you can send an inquire or reserve guest house instantly after seeing room and rent details. 

B&B guest houses can be searched on this website (link) . It is available in 5 languages ( english, Chinese simplified and traditional, Japanese and Korean)

For Classic Guest House, I found their information on B&B website (classic guest house).  It redirected me to their website which is nice and flashy looking website (link). I made a reservation inquiry on their website however I didn't get any response. However, I sent out email to them, and got response immediately. So most of the times we talked through email. House owner is warm and friendly person. They have a part-time staff who is fluent in English. You will face no language issues there ^^

Seoul International Students Forum : Group D and its awesome idea

Since 2008, every year Seoul Global Center under umbrella of Seoul Metropolitan government organizes Seoul International Students Forum(SISF) for both foreigner and korean students who are enrolled in universities of Seoul! This give students a chance to commingle, share ideas and have fun all together! The sole purpose of SISF is to nurture hidden talents of students by giving them oppournity to work on policy proposal that should be unique and practical.

Having said that, it is not easy to do such activities specially if there are students from diverse backgrounds and cultures. SISF members came from more than 30 countries across Europe, Asia and America.

Daejeon visit: A day away from Seoul and Suwon

Its hard to go out when rain is pouring down cats and dogs! Though Sunday is mostly the free day to visit places outside Seoul (if planned 1 day trip), yet it is tricky as next day is working day! 
It was my first experience to travel via KTx (Suwon to Daejeon Station).  It costs 10,000 - 11,000 KRW from Suwon to Daejon (KTx). and traveling time is 1 hour 10 minutes. It sounds funny that I missed Daejeon station and dropped out at next station :-)  Though I came back via next train for free but it was new experience for me! Adventurous!
  The first impression of Daejeon was good on me, because I saw flag of Pakistan outside Daejeon station among Korean war supporters! The second impression of Daejeon was " It is quiet and serene place"  Yes, indeed!





























The first sightseeing in Daejoen was "Daejeon Steam"  It follows through the city and provides a good place for picnic and cycling!

After eating the delicious lunch, I headed for Daejeon Art Museum. The museum was surrou…
