Located a few blocks from city hall, the hotel’s neighborhood is filled with things to do. Drop your bags and refresh before heading out for dinner.

Make reservations at Junsik Seoul for a truly luxurious Korean meal. Finish the night up with a visit to the hotel’s bar, the Peninsula Bar and Lounge. A decadent waterfall, soft live music and warm sunlight and moonlight filtering into the room makes this a perfect end to the evening.

Day 2

Sleep in and get ready for a day of sightseeing, visiting elegant structures and palaces. The first stop of the day is a tour of Deoksugung Palace, with a history dating back to its construction in the early 1600s. The palace is surrounded by Western architecture, a feeling not matched by other palace tours. After the tour, take a short walk to Seoul’s City Hall, where you can admire the Renaiassance-style architecture.  Finish the day by walking to the Hwangudan Altar. The complex is the oldest set of buildings you will explore during the tour, dating to A.D. 983. Finish the day at the hotel.

Throughout the day, make sure to sample as much local cuisine as you can muster. Finish the day here before your night flight from Incheon Airport.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
