    We stayed in early June 2017, and I almost feel sorry for people who chose to stay in hotels! The guesthouse is a traditional Korean hanok. As such, it's laid out with a central garden and with all of the guestrooms and the communal kitchen...More

    Hi Sandy! Yeah, as instructed in email, the best way is to take a taxi from the terminal to my place. That will cost about $10 per taxi only for half an hour ride.
