Seasalt sauna: Slightly hot
This is the first time I going to jjimjilbang. Dragon hill spa is really quite big and spacious. There are 4 main sauna: Herbal sauna, Ice sauna, Charcoal sauna and seasalt sauna. My favorite is the herbal sauna as it has a nice scent and the temperature is not too high either. It is just for me to take nap inside. The charcoal sauna is too hot and I just come out with a few minutes. The ice sauna is also quite interesting. The seasalt sauna is slight hot but still bearable.
*Remember to take break in between sauna and drink more water

There is quite a lot rooms catered for resting. There is also a lot other facilities like arcade, gaming room and movies room which is really good. I think some people can stay there overnight just to enjoy all the facilities. The bathing room is also quite good. Shampoo and soaps are all provided and there is also drier etc.
The sauna eggs which cost 2500won for 3 pieces. The taste is quite normal nothing special ... kind of disappointing.

Overall, I really enjoy the trip to jjimjilbang which is really quite an unique experience. I would strongly recommend everyone to give dragon hill spa a try as it has all kind of facilities able to cater to everyone need.
