    Seoul’s Secret Highlights for Tourists

    Namsan Tower, Lotte World, Han River, these are the places that every visitor to Seoul hears about. But what about Seoul’s secrets? The places that aren’t so close to the normal travelling path. Seoul is so big and houses so many cool, unique, and interesting places within its borders. Most people never get a chance to experience most of these areas though, even the locals. When you have such a large city it’s bound to happen. These places aren’t secret, but they are places that are generally overlooked by many people – especially tourists. These are my favourites of Seoul’s secrets. Kwangjang Market – A market with character. Namdaemun and…

    Sungshin Women’s University Cat Cafe. The Best in Seoul?!

    Sungshin Women’s University is home to what I would say is easily the most fun cat cafe in Seoul. Situated on line 4 (the light blue line), in the north of Seoul, Sungshin is a little bit out of the way. However, this is probably for the better as it allows lots of small businesses to pop up. Sungshin Women’s University Cat Cafe is one of these great little businesses. Today I visited Sungshin Women’s University Cat Cafe (as I believe it is the only one here) with my girlfriend. It was a lot of fun and the cats are active and possibly even slightly crazy. This isn’t to say they…

    Korea is a country that is famous for its dating culture.

    N Seoul Tower – One of the Best Views in Seoul?

    When you search for the best views in Seoul there are a few places that I am sure you have encountered more than a few times. The Han River, Lotte Tower, and Namsan Tower (also called N Seoul Tower). Each one of these locations is famous for its view and is popular because of it. I’m sure you’ve seen countless photos from these locations, but here I am today to share some more! While Namsan Tower is definitely one of the most well-known views in Seoul it is also one of the best. I guess that’s why it’s famous after all. But while N Seoul Tower may be a cliched…

    Cotton Candy Drinks and Beautiful Flowers!

    As with everything, there are a lot of totally mediocre and average cafes out there. Very few are surprising or even astounding, but today I went to one such cafe! Flower cafes are a common type of cafe in Seoul as there often isn’t as much nature outdoors that can be seen easily. There especially aren’t many places you can go to see wide varieties of flowers and plant-life anyway! Flower cafes have sprung up to try and fill this gap, creating places where you can go to enjoy a drink of tea or coffee and see (and smell) a variety of flowers and plants. While they are often a…
