  • am down to my last few hours here in Seoul so what I've decided to do is do

  • two of my favourite things I'm going to a Korean Jjimjilbang Korean

  • sauna which is just a fantastic way to relax hot tubs saunas themed rooms it's

  • gonna be such a nice way to relax just before I catch my flight home also I

  • planned bowls dolsot bibimbap my favorite Korean food aside from Korean BBQ and

  • yeah I'm just at Seoul station at the moment and there is my favorite sauna

  • it's a short walk from here I'm going to show you how I get there and show you

  • the salon experience before we head off to the airport when you arrive at Seoul

  • station you just need to head to the home plus giant department store grocery

  • store and walk through it you're gonna want to walk through the food court area

  • and once you've reached that you just take the escalator down exit the

  • building and you're basically right at the footsteps of the shiloam sauna

  • so once you've reached outside of the building you just need to head directly

  • right and you're gonna find a giant intersection you cross that and you just

  • have to go up this tiny little hill and your rate at Siloam sauna

  • guys I'm so excited to be going back to the sauna actually about three years ago

  • when Audrey and I were visiting Seoul and we stayed here for a whole month

  • we stayed near Seoul station and we were within walking distance of the Selma I

  • kid you not I probably came here five to six times a week almost every day it's

  • just the most relaxing thing for me to do here in Korea I just love it just

  • kind of its therapeutic just sweating and relaxing it's just literally exactly

  • what I wanted to be doing with my final few hours here and so it's my favorite

  • thing to do at the sauna is actually to go and grab a meal first so I'm doing

  • just that there's an extensive menu can get JK's

  • you can get John of your Korean food but my favorite thing yet by far is a stone

  • pot it's rice which is called dolsot bibimbap oh my gosh she was so delicious it

  • comes with lots of fan chants and it's just a big portion so it's gonna be like

  • my last really big meal here in Korea and I can't wait to have it so what you

  • do is you just walk up to the dining hall which is on the second floor and

  • place your order you pay with cash and then you get a little buzzer and once it

  • starts above up a buzzing that's when you know your food's ready

  • oh it's ready it is ready don't sell me that look at that guys the dual slot

  • bibimbap has arrived look at all the ingredients carrots mushrooms bean

  • sprouts radish oh my gosh another kind of mushrooms seaweed greens egg on top

  • and the gochujang red pepper paste sauce I'm gonna let it cook for a bit so the

  • rice burns on the bottom and we also have the seaweed soup which is called

  • Korea it's so easy to eat healthy here delicious food that's also really

  • healthy for you too love that about Korea all right I think

  • that is done

  • it's just as good as I remembered being here honestly one of the big perks of

  • coming to the sauna is that they make excellent food really really good Korean

  • food so I'm really happy to be having this goals left bibimbap and for it so

  • it maintained its standard - spicy tons of different vegetables for Seoul's over

  • Oh lunch was absolutely fantastic even better than I remembered to be honest

  • that's probably the best bowl of the slop bibimbap I've had on this entire

  • chip but anyways guys I kind of wanted to let you know about the entire

  • experience here like what it's like to comment to the sauna because there's

  • certain parts obviously I can't film because it's naked areas and change

  • rooms and whatnot so what happens is you come into the entrance you pay for your

  • fee you have the option of doing sauna only

  • or gym jabong if you do ginger balm like what I'm doing they give you a uniform

  • shorts and a t-shirt and that gives you access to the entire building not just a

  • sauna area but the second floor with the restaurant there's more floors with

  • movie rooms special rooms like this is biggest sauna I've ever been to and so

  • basically I decided to pay 2,000 more so eleven thousand won instead of nine

  • thousand won for access to these special features and you could stay as long as

  • you want which is super cool I mean you could a lot of people actually come here

  • on the weekends to relax and maybe they'll spend like an entire afternoon

  • they may go to the sauna for an hour maybe then they have a lunch for an hour

  • they'll come and watch a movie they'll work out at the gym they'll take a sleep

  • here so I mean there's various things that you can do at the gym jokbal which

  • makes it so so cool and for the time being I'm just going to show you a

  • couple of different rooms and then I'm going to actually enjoy the sauna the

  • part which I actually can't show you so basically when you go to the salon oh

  • you get naked there's a area for just men an area for just women so it's

  • completely separated and yeah that's the best part of coming to the gym shabak

  • for sure I'm going into the icer right now

  • I'm Canadian or what how cool gonna feel oh my gosh look pure ice ice on the

  • walls and it's got a blue like oh here here's a temperature look at that

  • white it's six Wow it's chilly in here but you know what

  • it's so hot outside and soul that I'm actually enjoying this more on race guys

  • that concludes my tour Jim's a ball now it's time for me to take these off and

  • head to the song which obviously cannot show you so I was so incredibly

  • refreshing Oh feel like a million bucks after being in the sauna it's just all

  • the different hot tubs and sweating rooms and then basically jumping into

  • the pool pool which I call the Polar Plunge it just reinvigorates you feel a

  • lot better than even if I have a nap by going to the sauna that's how good I

  • feel afterwards anyways I need to head back to my apartment gather my stuff and

  • start getting ready to head to the train station I am a little bit behind oh my

  • gosh I never running so behind guys so I'm gonna give you the world's fastest

  • gorillas apartment who are here in Seoul South Korea I'm gonna flip the camera

  • around and just show you the place okay guys so there's a place to kick off our

  • shoes we got a nice shoe rack here some umbrellas to use and a bracket cleaner

  • which came in quite handy directly to the right we have the bathroom

  • it's a wet shower which I just took a shower one more before I leave and uh

  • yeah hey very standard Korean shower you put on those shoes so you don't get wet

  • shower sprays everywhere yeah hanging out my towels okay so this was our

  • living room we had basically the couch over here David and I drank wine there

  • at night we had deaths we didn't really utilize too much tiny kitchen this is

  • awesome I could have done her wash her clothes if we had time basically

  • everything you would need in the kitchen microwave tiny fridge here's my room so

  • all basically parked up there's really nothing here

  • this is David's room I'm not gonna go and show too much messy bed David make

  • your bed anyways I'm late so I need to get to Seoul station as soon as possible

  • I'll have an update for you guys when I'm about

  • the train for Incheon International Airport

  • so I finally made it to Seoul station oh my gosh what does ooh that place is so

  • basically I had to go underground to the metro area pop up go through the whole

  • train station right to the very end and then underground a bunch of escalators

  • so as if you're coming to Seoul station and you're taking the train to the

  • airport keep in mind that it takes quite a while to get through all of that like

  • probably 15 20 minutes to get down to the platform and I use my t-money card

  • and it's only gonna cost me about 4000 won to get there and I believe the

  • journey is gonna be just over an hour waiting right now at 2:35 and I'm hoping

  • to get there sometime before 3:00 at the train arrives soon

  • arrived at the airport oh man that was such a quick ride only 60 minutes and

  • guys if you want to take an even faster train the Express train just takes me 40

  • minutes I believe the price is 9001 you don't stop at as many stations the train

  • travels faster and you get assigned seats where is the train I took into

  • general seating is amazing like any other natural so guys I got my boarding

  • pass that was an absolute breeze not much of a lineup but the only other

  • thing I want to see if I can do is exchange these t-money cards the

  • transportation card basically has some money on it and I want to see if I can

  • get a refund or not so hopefully they told me to come down to the first level

  • and just go to any convenience store I should be able to get a refund but I

  • guess I'll find out in a few minutes so quick update about the t-money cards I

  • ended up going to the information desk and they told me that I can go to a

  • convenience store and get a refund but I checked the computer store there's like

  • an insane line and you know what guys I know for sure I'm gonna be back in Korea

  • so I'm just gonna hang on to these it'll be really handy oh and I should mention

  • that this one from 2014 had some credit left on it so when I arrived I was too

  • late but to use it it never expires so it's actually worth holding on to them

  • if you think you're gonna be back in Korea well guys if check-in was a breeze

  • immigration was even easier Incheon International Airport is one of my

  • favorite in the world so clean modern and efficient so easy to get through

  • that process of check-in and immigration so right now I have about an hour and a

  • half to kill have a little bit of one left over and so I'm thinking of

  • grabbing a few presents for Audrey and family oh yeah I'm just gonna wander it

  • around and see what kind of souvenirs or chocolate or whatever I can find

  • and yeah spend all my want this is a really cool store you can buy a

  • traditional Korean handicrafts and other souvenirs and it's kind of high-end

  • stuff it's not like cheap souvenirs for example you have tables that start at

  • eight hundred thousand won which is about seven hundred dollars and you also

  • have dining sets for three hundred thirty thousand won about three hundred

  • dollars chopsticks all kinds of things here so the first step in here is a take

  • okie these are magnetic coasters oh this is fascinating so the Korean flag is

  • called the taeguk II symbolizes the ultimate origin of the universe and

  • depicts the rise of yin and yang it sure is busy at the airport check out the

  • crowds guys lots and lots of people here waiting for their flights and I think I

  • see a robot up ahead yep it is a robot this store looks kind of interesting it

  • specializes in Korean red ginseng that Korean chicken looks so good so tempting

  • but I know if I ate that right before a flight I'd regret it for sure so I just

  • blew all my one I grabbed two more magnets one for Audrey's parents and one

  • for mine guys it's so hard to believe that my trip is almost over I mean these
