Seoul is a short 2.5hr flight from Tokyo. A popular city for their amazing food and shopping. Stay at the Lotte Hotel in Myeong-dong; it`s super convenient and located in one of the main shopping districts. The Lotte Hotel is connected to the Lotte store. If you take a short trip to Seoul in Winter with your little one like I did, you`ll never have to leave the building. The store has a premium supermarket & food court in the basement, duty free shops on the 9th & 10th floors, child-friendly restaurants on the top floor and a “Fun Kid`s Cafe” on the children`s floor (7th fl), a place where you can relax & grab a quick bite/drink while your kids play (English menu available). Next door to the Fun Kid`s Cafe is a kids salon, nursing and diaper changing rooms. If you can`t book a room at the Lotte Hotel, the Westin Chosun is right next door.

If you`re interested in checking out Korea`s mega discount stores, go to Lotte Mart. It`s located next to Seoul Station, a short 10 min cab ride away from Myeong-dong, or go to E-mart (the newest and cleanest one is located in Wangshimlee, 30 min from the hotel).
