Korean shopping deal just what you need in a recession
Now, the next bit is from a press release, so it must be true. The Shilla Seoul is consistently voted South Korea's leading hotel (which leads me to believe it's one of the best in both Koreas ... but that's just a guess). And, why wouldn't it be? It's part of the Leading Hotels of the World chain. The name says it all.
Now, back to that press release ... it says that you should go to LHW's website to take advantage of this deal. But, if you can believe it, the press release lies!!! (Or, maybe it's just wrong). I couldn't find it on the LHW site, but it turned up on The Shilla Seoul's website. I shouldn't be surprised at this debacle, given LHW's awesome track record with the Internet.
It's probably worth looking for this deal, because North Korea's Ryugyong Hotel isn't open yet. The Shilla Seoul is probably going to be the top hotel on the peninsula for a while (at least if you believe LHW's publicist).
