Guide to GMARKET : Ship to Malaysia

Woohoo, buying from Gmarket is easier than i thought! I’ve registered an Gmarket account just to check on the original price of Korean skincare product and i received an international shipping fee promotion email earlier. Without a second thought, i just clicked and ordered!

First order, just getting some Korean made clothes. Tips: If you are looking for clothes in GMarket, do check on the source of the clothes, some of them might came from China. No point to use Gmarket to get made from China clothes while you can TAOBAO it, right?

Pros and Cons: Visiting Seoul Korea in Winter

If i have to choose, i will choose to visit Korea in winter season again. I am not a big fan for greens and flowers, definitely not a fan for summer and also i don’t like to stuck in queue with many other travellers for transport or other facilities.

Here are my reasons for choosing winter season to visit Korea again!

Pros

  1. Most of the attraction places are on hill or mountain. You need to climb up and down to do shopping or visit the attraction spots. I hate getting sweaty and sticky climbing up and down.
  2. Summer season is too hot and i had enough of heat in Malaysia. Feels like staying in huge oven everyday already.
  3. Spring and Autumn are very popular seasons for traveller. You might need to spend a lot of times in queueing for everything.

  4. More discounts and promotions for off seasons.
  5. Might be able to get shop assistant to help you get the things you want. Most of the shop assistant in shopping area will focus more on China tourists as they always buy things in bulk.
  6. Can save more on accommodation.
  7. The stunning view in winter. White and fluffy snow fall from sky, everything is covered in white.

  8. There are plenty festivals. Such as: light festival in the botanic garden, ice sculpture festival or sunset/sunrise party on the mountain.
  9. Can go for skiing.
  10. The beautiful Christmas decorations in the shopping areas!
  11. Seasonal fruits or foods. It was strawberry season when i visiting Korea, almost every cafe serving seasonal strawberry drinks and bingsu.

  12. What’s better than enjoying the hot and spicy Kimchi soup and smoky pork BBQ in the winter.
  13. And Yes! Fried chicken, beer, soju in the winter night.
  14. Heh and you can enjoy walking or shopping here and there without the disturbance of rude and loud China tourist group.

Seoul Winter Trip 2016

I went to Seoul recently and it was my first time seeing snow! Seoul is a beautiful city and very travel friendly. I went alone to find my friend who is currently studying in Ewha Women University. I spent a week in her apartment and travel around in Seoul. Below are some random shots for my Seoul trip.

Took around 6 hours from Malaysia to Korea. I took the shuttle bus from airport and reached Ewha Womans University to meet up with my friend.
