Jongnowon Motel和初邂秋枫 First glance of autumn (6/11)

在我的背包游里,对住宿的要求向来不高,只要环境整洁和价钱廉宜就可以。
这一次准备得匆忙在最后一个星期才开始定,很多酒店都满了。在绝望时,只有这一间回复我,哈哈!在Innostel的官网里有这一间Motel,Innostel是韩国政府认可的酒店。不过我并不是从官网里面定,而是直接去Jongnowon Motel的网站预订,价格好像比较便宜。一晚38,000Won,如果5天以上还有5%折扣。Banana Seoul backpacker hostel 就在隔壁而已。
建议第一次去韩国还是预订酒店比较好,因为一般上韩国人的英语有限。就像在汗蒸幕遇到的鸡蛋男,搞了大半天也不知道Egg是什么。
I never have high demand of hotel quality as long as clean and cheap will do. 
This trip is so rush that i only book my hotel in last minute, and lot of hotels are fully booked. In the time I almost feel desperate, only this motel reply my email. haha! This is a government recognized motel in Innostel website. I didn't book it through Innostel website, instead I book from its official Jongnowon website and it seems cheaper. 38000Won per night (double room), and discount 5% if stay more than 5 days. Another banana seoul backpacker hostel just next door only. 
I recommend pre-book hotel is better if this is your first time, because korean's english is so limited. Just like the Egg guy we met in sauna, he doesn't know what "egg" is... 

哈,怕别人不知是Innostel的。
ha, scare people don't know innostel.



我们不甘不愿地从Land汗蒸幕起身后,就直接乘地铁来这里了。(从Land的阶梯下来转左,直走就会看见地铁站)安国站4号出口,往前走经过云岘宫,第一个巷子转左(有时有一辆车在卖蜜馅烧饼,500Won一个,挺好吃),直走后第一个十字路口转右,就看到Banana Hostel和Jongnowon Motel。这个卖烧饼的老人看见我们,就把手指一指说Hotel,真好。
万一你出来直走是看见Garden Tower和渣打银行,就在GS油站(对面是昌德宫的敦化门)转右,直走就会看见Jongnowon了。万一你还找不到,我想这就是上天要你享受背包的乐趣了,哈哈!!
We so lazy to wake up from Land sauna, and ride on metro train to here. (come down from Land's staircase turn left, go straight and you will see train station). Jongnowon located at Anguk station Exit 4, go straight and turn left on first junction. (you may see a car selling honey pancake, 500Won each, yummy). Go straight again and turn right on first cross junction, you will see Banana hostel and jongnowon is behind it. This old man selling pancake is good, he stop us and point us the direction. Not sure how he know we are looking for hotel.
Just in case if you come out and only see Garden tower and Standard chartered bank, turn right at GS petrol station (opposite is the cheongdeok palace), go straight and you will see Jongnowon. If you really still cannot find it, you are blessed... haha!

里面的阿朱妈只会一点点英语,真的就是一点点。
The auntie inside only know a bit of english, really.
原以为可以提早Check-in,那个阿朱妈又叫我们喝咖啡,又叫我们等一等。。。结果一个小时还是一样,再问了问却跟我们说一大堆韩语。我们又说了一堆英语,也不管她听得懂吗,就决定出去后再回来Check-in。她只是一直说OK,OK. lol
依计划去看北村8景。
到北村之前,先走去安国站。一片黄是银杏、一片红是枫树。
I thought we can check-in early, that auntie ask us to drink coffee (they pronounce KOPI), then ask us to wait a while... end up it's still the same after 1 hour, we ask again then she just reply us with lot of korea language. We just throw her back bunch of english without knowing she understand, and decide to go out and come back later. She just keep saying ok ok. lol
we follow our plan to visit the 8 scenes of Bukchon (the north village)
Before we reach bukchon, we need to walk back to Anguk station. The yellowish tree is ginkgo and the reddish tree is maple.

Garden Tower,前面有黄黄的树,天气也挺凉爽。
cool whether and yellowish tree.

哇!街边的枫叶就这样美了。
wao!! maple leaves is such a beautiful.

美。
Nice.

这是银杏树,就是卖很贵的银杏啦!
This is the expensive ginkgo tree.


银杏果是满街掉,也没人理。
Nobody takes care of the ginkgo on the street.

注:Jongnowon是没有大条毛巾提供的,只有小条的面巾。有些人喜欢换酒店,我就没有因为地铁是很方便的。而且这个地点对我们逛古宫很方便,只需要步行就到了(马来西亚人的标准,不是很厉害走路的韩国人标准)。
Note: Jongnowon do not provide big towel, they only give small tower. Some people like to change hotel, we didn't change because we feel that riding train is pretty easy. And this place is so near to Palace, only walking distance. (our malaysian standard, not the standard of walking freak korean standard)

下一篇,韩国传统古宅--北村 (希望我们马六甲和槟城的古宅可以一直保留下来)
Next one, Korean traditional house -- Bukchon (I hope our old houses in Melaka & Penang can be preserved forever)
