Autumn in Seoul – Seoul Lantern Festival

Hey ho!

I just came back from Seoul few days ago and as i promised, i will post my highlight activity while in Seoul, and this time i’m so lucky because when i go to Korea, Seoul lantern festival is being held when i arrived. I manage to visit the festival on the third day since my arrival. Seoul lantern festival is yearly festival and will be held once a year around fall season. The location of the festival is on cheonggyecheon stream and cheonggyecheon plaza (1.2 km). I go there by subway and i get off at Jonggak Station (Seoul Subway Line 1), Exit 4. It turned out that the stream near jonggak station is almost the end of one side. So i go finish one side and turn back to another side. Here’s few pics from the festival : (more…)

One Fine Summer – Seoul Travellog part 1

Hi guys!

Finally the promised seoul travellog is here! I went to Seoul, Korea last August for 12 days. I stayed only in Seoul because i want to feel the most of Seoul. Do cafe hopping, shopping for clothes, cosmetics and souvenirs, sight seeing, leisurely stroll around, eat yummy foods and street snacks, wearing hanbok, and so on. I will not share the detail on how to get here and there in Seoul because already so many fellow blogger covered it up on their blog post ^^ instead, i will share some of my photograph while i’m in Seoul in a random order. So, here we go : (more…)

Holiday to Korea!!

ImageHi Everyone!

I’m so excited that i will be in Seoul, Korea for the second time later on August! I’ve been there once but already a long long time ago, in November,2004. This time i will be exploring Seoul with my mom for 12 days (originally 9 days only, but after me and my mom start making the itinerary, we start to realize that 9 days wasn’t enough for us 😀 so, we decided to alter our air tickets). 

Basically i will be exploring most popular Seoul tourism places like itaewon, gangnam, apgujeong, myeongdong, hongdae, jamsil, garosugil, ganghwamun, bundang, and many more. For this time, i will travel independently (last time i join a full tour service). As i really hoping that it will be a memorable travel experience, i already listed all the interesting places, all the food i wanted to eat, and i’m self learning basic korean language now (i know i will need it somehow >.< ).

Later i will share my experience while i’m in Seoul and also i will share some of my photographs! and if any of you already been to Seoul before me on August, i will be glad if you willing to share your experience with me!

Touch Korea Tour : 3 things I would do in Korea

Hi everyone! this is my 3rd post and now i still want to talk a bit about Korea 😀 . (Make sure you read my previous posts! :* ). I want to make a to-do list if I go to Korea. There are so many things i want to do if I go there (probably would take a longgg time to finish it) but I will mention 3 things that i really really want to do in Korea.

Take a photo of me wearing pretty & colorful hanbok

I’m weak over cute and pretty things and here it comes! Super pretty and colorful hanbok! I just can’t stop staring at it. I love the combination of bright color, but pastel color looks good too! The flower prints, the colorful stripes really make a gorgeous combination, such a national treasure & heritage, really great! 2 days ago I just finished watching the recent and very popular K-Drama Moon Embraces The Sun which are the story of a kingdom where the casts wearing super pretty hanbok. Watching that kind of drama makes me love hanbok more and more ❤ .

Take a stroll, go to stylish cafe, and taking photograph

I often saw many articles about many stylish cafe in Korea, you know i love photography. i love to take pics of nature & scenery and also love to take pics of stylish place. So i want to take a stroll in the street, take my time, looking around, take some photos, go to cafes, enjoying the snacks, and take some photos again,haha.. (of course if the owner don’t mind because some of the fine restaurants and cafes in my country don’t allow me to take photos of their interior even with me in the photo 😦 ).

Try Jjimjilbang (찜질방)

This is the popular public bathhouse/ korean spa that i want to try. Watching many K-Dramas and variety shows scene taken inside of Jjimjilbang and it looked like really really fun (cracked the egg on your friend head sounds fun :p and i want to try Iced Sikhye too! ), so i thought i want to try it someday if i go to Korea.

Yeap, those are 3 things I would do in Korea. What do you think? Any interesting idea? Please share with me!
