Early in the morning – at 1:30 local time!! – we took the Airport Express Bus from Tokyo Bus Terminal to Narita Airport. The bus landed at Terminal 3 at about 2:45 a.m. Well International Airport? We have never seen such a sleepy airport in a metropolis before! Nothing going on really nothing!
We walked the 800m to Terminal 2. The way was deserted! In Terminal 2 we had to wait until 5 o’clock when a shuttle brought us to Terminal 1. At 7am we could finally check in, supported by a friendly lady from Asiana Airlines (Korean airline). Departure was then at 9 o’clock.
Finally – arrival in Seoul at 11:00 am. Already at 1am we took the Airport Express Bus 6011 to Seoul, more precisely to the stop at Changdeok Palace. Yes, you should remember the name otherwise you will end up somewhere!
On foot we went to the Hotel Ibis Ambassador. Two ladies confirmed the way on their iPhone. Well, Seoul has a very good WLAN coverage – and it doesn’t cost anything. Germany is a real WLAN desert!
A round of rest in the hotel was the order of the day.
Walk to the City Hall along the Cheonggyechon Stream.
Past the Hotel Lotte to the Hotel President.
Visit of the DMZ Travel Agency – Haha was the wrong agency – We did not have the documents with us – Crazy.
We went on to the tourist information.
At the end dinner at the Gwangcheo-Dong – Original Korean – Only Korean card – The communication took place with hands and an interpreter en/kr and vice versa at the neighbouring table.
Cappucino at Starbucks, that had to be.
Further it went back to the hotel.
