Warung Legong Pantai Indah Kapuk

Warung Legong is the newest addition of Balinese food at Pantai Indah Kapuk. If you are familiar with Little Ubud also at PIK or the infamous Nasi Pedas Ibu Andika in Bali, this one shares the same cuisine and concept. With "warung" style system, they serve ready to eat traditional mixed rice in rattan plate. In here, customers could just choose the dish they like, then they will give you a piece of paper with the value of food you choose.

Ivy's Travel: Korea Trip Part 4

Day 6 (BIFF Square, Gukje Market, Busan Tower, Yongdusan Park, fly to Jeju Island)

Today we left Busan and fly to Jeju. It was sad to leave Busan. We regretted how we only spent a day there, but the ticket to Jeju has been bought, hotel has been booked, to make a changes would cost too much cancellation fee. :(
If you go to Korea, make sure spend at least two nights in Busan. The city is just too peaceful, I love the serenity.

Ivy's Travel: Korea Trip Part 3

Day 5 (KTX train to Busan: Jagalchi Fish Market and Haeundae Beach)

The next day, we went to Busan. All hotels in Seoul allow you to keep your luggage with them when you take a trip to other cities in Seoul or the frequent place tourist visits, Jeju Island. It's thoughtful so we don't have to drag all our luggage. It's recommended to ask in advance about the keeping luggage policy to the hotel/ hostels before booking though.

Ivy's Travel: Korea Trip Part 2

Day 4 (Gyeongbokgung Palace, Tosokchon, Insadong)

One of my goals for the Korea trip is to taste as much as possible of their Coffee shops. Not so much on the coffee of course, but more to satisfy my curiosity. Do you know that Korea is one of the country with largest coffee shop chains in Asia? In our entire trip, there are countless of Cafe Bene, Angel in US, Coffine Gurunaru, Toms, Tous Le Jours, and many many more all over the streets. Starbucks? Almost unseen! Yes, it's not a secret that Korea and Japan are two countries who is very much proud of their own local brand. Out of the topic, we almost didn't spot any other car brands at the streets except for KIA and Hyundai.

Ivy's Travel: Korea Trip Part 1

Since our honeymoon back in 2010, I think this Korea trip is the second longest trip we had just the two of us. We travel, but mostly short one or together with the fams. The country was not really our first pick, Australia was, but due to one another reason, we decided to go to Korea and postpone our Oz trip. Honestly speaking, the country might not be our chosen country to die die want to go back but Korea is beautiful, the city is very clean and has this amazing culture. The trip was so much fun for us because we got to be in a quite long holiday just the two of us (something rare), and I always love to go to a new place, to see their culture, to see the place where we used to only see via tv or movies, is just priceless. BTW, if you are wondering, we went by ourselves, I never like the idea of traveling with tour.
