Muslim Prayer Room in Korea Tourism HQ

If you find that it's too far going to Seoul Mosque in Itaewon to perform your prayer, there's another good news! ^^

"The KTO recently opened a prayer room at the Tourism Information Centre on the first basement floor of its headquarters, so that Muslim tourists can visit. The carpeted room has a compass showing the direction of Mecca." by Joo Sung-hee, a KTO manager - sources: Halal Journal

The last time when I visited KTO HQ to make a free call to Malaysia.
