Travel Planning Service - Miss Izzati's Testimonial

My New Year resolution is to take pity on this poor abandoned site and make more efforts to update with new posts and information. I shall start by posting a series of long overdue testimonials by satisfied customers of the Travel Planning Service. Alhamdulillah. Here's the first in this series!

Here are some of the photos from the trip. I thank you for the service since it had excellently guided us to experience vacationing in Seoul where we don't speak the language except for 'Saranghae'. Hehe. But your guidance made it easy for us without being lost even once! Amazing! We even manage to include our Jeju trip in between the itinerary! Thank you, thank you! I'm hoping to visit the city one more time if there's a chance. :) - Miss Izzati, Malaysia

Thank you Miss Izzati for your trust in this service. I hope your sharing will goes a long way in assuring future customers that they will (hopefully!) not get lost reading my directions. ;)

Trick Eye Museum

District (gu): Mapo-gu
GPS: 37.553551,126.921689

If museums are not your thing, this one might change your mind yet. Instead of showing old artifacts, this museum has pictures and props designed to "trick" the brain. You can take pictures and have a fun day overall here. It is a good place to bring children to and worth a visit if you are already around Hongdae area. (source).

Yang Good Korean BBQ Lamb Restaurant

Category: Restaurant - Halal Restaurant
Nearest Subway Station: Yeoksam Station (Line 2)
Distance from Subway Station: 289 meters (Exit 6)
District (gu): Gangnam-gu
GPS: 37.502177,127.034696
It is really unfortunate that there are not many choices for halal Korean food in Seoul. There is Murree Restaurant in Itaewon... and.... ? Well there are also many seafood options but I am sure we all agree that we. must. have. meat.

Fear not! You can have your sizzling, smoking grilled BBQ meat at this restaurant. They use lamb meat imported from Australia so they are Halal. Yeay! Prepare to spend a ~little~ bit extra though. But I'm sure the experience will be well worth it. Price is around 11,000 KRW - 22,000 KRW and the restaurant is open from 3 PM until late. (source 1, source 2)

Travel Planning Service - Mr. Rusydi's Testimonial

If you like shopping, Seoul is definitely one of the places you should go. You can go bargain hunting at Dongdaemun wholesale that is open till early morning, you can buy unique and creative crafts at the Hongdae Hope and Free Market, get trendy and modern at Myeongdong, go traditional and buy antiques on the street of Insadong or take the glamour up a notch and visit Apgujeong Rodeo Street and  Garosu-gil. Mr. Rusydi and his friend had fun traversing the streets of Seoul going sightseeing, hiking and shopping and this is what he had to say about the service:
Unexpected prompt & fast planning service by Fadzlin (Muslim Backpackers Seoul) at affordable rates.
Directions were quite clear and exact. I am definitely satisfied with the itineraries.
Overall experience meet my expectation.
Kudos to Fadzlin for your great efforts in planning out our itineraries.

Thank you Mr. Rusydi for sharing your comments and these lovely pictures. I hope your wish to return to Seoul again will come true!
