Hotel Felicidad, Our Vigan Home!

 
Vigan brought back memories of my high school days' El Filibusterismo and Noli Me Tangere classes ~ the old Hispanic buildings, the cobbled stone road and the kalesa ride perfected the moment.
 
A Hotel Felicidad stay was an obvious decision for our family expedition in vintage Vigan city. 
 
The hotel is newly built and boasts huge classic Principalia themed rooms.
It is located right in the heart of Vigan City and is just a few steps away Vigan's famous Calle Crisologo.

We booked a deluxe room, with a queen size and  a single poster beds.  I must warn you  that the beds are quite high - not good for kids who roll and toss over in their sleep.

We had to join the two beds together to sleep my family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) comfortably. That plus, I wouldn't want one of boys falling over.

The room has a window that opens to a road below.  Could be a little noisy for light sleepers.




Big and sturdy wooden furniture eating up all those spaces. 


The hotel is quite generous with toiletries. I liked their soap a lot, I brought the left over home.
 
 
We love the room, but for a 4 star hotel they don't have a refrigerator nor a coffee maker inside the room (You can, however, request for cold water from any of the hotel's staff anytime.  Coffee also runs free for a particular time of the day at the hotels dining area.   Still a in-room refrigerator, would have been a whole lot more convenient, especially for those travelling with kids).
 
 
Breakfast came free with the room accommodation. Choices were limited and preparation quite poor compared to other hotels we have stayed in.  Don't expect too much, so as not to disappoint yourself. If  you are not satisfied, you can always take a stroll to one of the restaurants along Calle Crisogo.

Holy Week rendezvous in Vigan.

Day 4 in Seoul (A Private Tour : Seoul ~ Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island)

Our Day 4 in South Korea was in the outskirt of Seoul ~ Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do.  As it was a little difficult to reach I contacted, "This is Korea" Tours to customize a private tour for my family.

Andy, our Tour Specialist (TS) cum driver and photographer picked us up at the Metro Hotel at 11am as agreed.  It was an easy ride on board a 7-seater limousine van for our family of 4. 

Our tour was personalized based on what we wanted so long as the entire trip is all within the 10 hours we've commissioned.  For our trip, we've decided on Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island.



SANJEONG LAKE

Sanjeong Lake is situated between Myeongseongsan and Mangbongsan Mountain.  Its name means "as clear as a mountain well". It was built in 1925 as a reservoir to supply to farmlands in Pocheon.


Reached Sanjeong Lake Park early afternoon ~ perfect weather for a cup of hot coffee 

Lots of things to do in the lake park.  We took a paddle boat and walked the lake promenade.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Kingdom Club

We wanted a special holiday with the kids (they are growing up so fast) and decided to welcome 2018 in Hong Kong Disneyland.  It has after all been 5 years since we have last been to Hong Kong.  Though we were recently in Tokyo Disneyland, the volume of guests was heartbreakingly huge ~ to truly enjoy the park.

We booked a 3 nights stay at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and opted for an upgrade to the Kingdom Club floor.

The elegant service and perks is well worth the additional cost.

Day 2 in Seoul - Part I (War Memorial of Korea, Grevin Wax Museum and the funny Nanta Show)

"Joh-eun achim (Good Morning) Seoul"
Our Day 2 in Seoul is a DIY using Seoul's public transportation. 
After a hearty complimentary breakfast at Metro Hotel, we made our way to Myeongdong Station and headed to the first item in our itinerary.

The War Memorial of Korea
The museum is easily accessible via Subway Line 4 through Samgakji Station, Exit 12.


If you have limited time to tour Seoul and want to see at least one of the city's museums, I highly recommend visiting the War Memorial.  We also visited the National Museum of Korea and liked the War Memorial better.
We spent hours touring the Outdoor Exhibition Area alone. The warships and aircrafts exhibition is truly remarkable. This particular ship is a replica of the Korean Naval Vessel PKM 357, which was involved in bloody naval battle between North and South Korea in 2002.
