2. Arisoo Day Spa
If you have never been to a Korean bathhouse, we recommend you do so. This Korean style wellness centre offers a truly unique experience that will leave you feeling warm, relaxed, perfectly exfoliated and fresh. This is very different from a western spa, and some may find Arisoo’s style a little confronting. It involves vigorous scrubbing, as well as other treatments, performed more intensively. The results are incredibly effective and invigorating.
