Gretchen Ho goes "Seoul-searching" in “Matanglawin”

Gretchen Ho will share her unforgettable experience in the city this Sunday (August 4) as “Matanglawin’s” featured “Adventurista” this week.

Kuya Kim meets producer of most expensive coffee! 
Adventure never stops for Kapamilya host Gretchen Ho who recently went soul-searching in Seoul, South Korea, one of Asia’s most popular tourist destinations.
According to Gretchen, Seoul is a must-see for Filipinos because of the place’s unique and colorful culture.  
“I think our Kapamilya should really go to Seoul because it really has soul. It is evident in the arts, food, entertainment, landmarks, and tourist spots,” she shared.
Gretchen will share her unforgettable experience in the city this Sunday (August 4) as “Matanglawin’s” featured “Adventurista” this week.
Join the “Umagang Kay Ganda” anchor as she climbs up the iconic N’Seoul Tower on Namsan Mountain and then encounters “locks of love” left by couples on her way down. She also played with lovable raccoons in a café at Daehangno Steet and enjoyed a 360 view of Seoul on the Lotte Tower, the fifth highest structure in the world.
A soul-searching trip is not complete without getting to spend a quiet time alone or learning a new skill. For this, the “Tikim Princess” trooped to the “Coffee Capital of South Korea,” where one can find 8,000 coffee shops. At the C. Through Café, which is famous for their rendition of Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” on coffee, Gretchen learned how to do coffee art from the coffee shop’s owner himself.
Not to be left behind, “Matanglawin” anchor Kuya Kim Atienza will also be sharing his fun bonding experience with an Asian Palm Civet Cat, which happens to be the producer of the most expensive coffee in the world, with a single cup costing almost P8,000!
