It was my dream to visit South Korea as there are many beautiful places and sceneries especially during autumn, winter and spring. When I was told by my parents that all of us would be spending a autumn holiday in South Korea in November 2014, it was indeed a dream comes true for me.
We departed Kuala Lumpur to South Korea in mid November 2014 via AirAsia flight from LCCT, KLIA Airport and the to Seoul took almost 6 hours to touch down at Incheon Airport, South Korea. Our companions in South Korea for this holiday were Malaysian students acted as our tour guides. 

The trip was a 6 days trip with pre-arranged tight schedule. We decided to stay at Itaewon Inn which we booked via online booking. The reason for choosing Itaewon District was because it is a tourist area with many muslim restaurants and where the Itaewon Mosque is located, the only mosque in Seoul.

As we arrived at late afternoon, nothing much we could do except resting at the hotel. On the 2nd day, we went to Everland Theme Park by train for 45 minutes ride. The theme park is located outside Seoul and we spent almost whole day time at the park. On the 3rd day, we went to Nami Island by multi purpose vehicle (MPV). The tour guides told us the journey by road would take approximately 2 hours. However due to heavy traffic on the weekend and religious festival held at the island, we spend almost 6 hours journey and arrived Nami Island at almost sunset. As a result, we could not photographed beautiful scenery in the island and left at 9 pm. We ended our day trip by taking a cruise ride at the Hang Gang River to catch the night view of Seoul for one hour ride.

The schedule of our 4th day trip was visiting Mount Sorak which took one and half hours drive. Upon arrival, we took a cable car to reach the top of the mountain. We spent forty-five minutes at the top of the mountain and the scenery at the top is very beautiful. The next day, we went to Namdemun Market for shopping. We took the apportunity to buy some souvenirs, bags and clothes. Generally the prices of goods are more expensive there. After spending one hour there, we continued our shopping at Dongdaemun Market and returned to our hotel in the evening.

On the final day in Seoul, we did not go anywhere as we had to be at the Incheon Airport early in the morning to catch the return flight to Kuala Lumpur. The 6 days trip was not enough for us to cover other interesting places such as Busan and Jeju Island which are located at the south of South Korea. We hope we would come back one day later to spend winter holiday in other tourist’s attraction places. Although the short trip was very tiring especially travelling via train from one place to another but we really enjoyed our autumn holiday in Seoul, South Korea.
