just so you guys don’t get confused too, I am here to tell you how.
but first lets take a look at Ssamziegil!
this is one of the restaurants in Ssamziegil; a place for le artsy fartsy people. =D.
and oh, REMEMBER TO BRING A PEN!!! (another of my mistake. sigh. but I can go there anytime =D!)
giant stalk of rose hahaha. roses are called jang-mi 장미 in Korean.
the yaangssss. sheeps and goats = yang 양. similar to the Chinese one aite?
a map of Insadong! if you noticed, all the shop names are written in Korean in Insadong. even Starbucks! something about keeping the traditional feel of this traditional street =P.
angmoh band is pretty good. they had quite a crowd too. my lens couldn’t fit them all tsk tsk.
the smaller lanes of Insadong is worth a stroll too!
like how they display the jang-mi‘s outside =3.
so back to topic yes? the landmark of where you should start walking to Samcheongdong is this brush. and up ahead (across the street) you should be able to see a road with many people.
this one. =D.
such a pretty road that I must have a picture with it teehee.
along the road you’ll find a lot of interesting little cafes as you walk. until you see another road, STILL KEEP WALKING STRAIGHT. (and into another small lane again..) and in no time, you’ll be in Samcheongdong =D.
these costs from 4,000won if I am not wrong.
famous Jjambbong 짬뽕! seafood noodle soup. Joseph was telling me how much he missed Jjambbong but I have yet to try it yet since my friend here doesn’t like seafood pfft.
entertainment for the kids (or not) while the parents eat in the restaurant. hahahahah. just thought these arcade machines look quite cute because they are so short hahaha.
initially Wai Kit and I were just chatting away until I suddenly freaked out because I got frightened with the LEG in front of me. madness. this thing almost gave ma a heart attack FFFFUUUUUUUUUUU.
we went two rounds in Samcheongdong. so if you turn left on the first wider road, just keep walking and you’ll see this. cross the road, walk up until you see another road turning to the right and that’s Samcheongdong for you =D. but I still feel that the other road is much more interesting. and it’s shorter.
A WOMAN RUNNING ON THE ROOF! nahhhhhhh…… Seoul has plenty of these wacky mannequins so look up the building!
my first Korean love, Song Seung Hun <3. was always in love with him since I watched my first Korean Drama when I was 8. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH………………..
I DON’T CARE IF YOU’RE OLD, MARRY ME!
and we got bored so we hiked up Bukchon Hanok village.
we really did. hahaha.
tada! back to the place where you can see both old and new. was like a complete tourist haha.
but we decided to stop by at Yoonbi’s SALON as they have the cheapest waffles! 3,500won for one with cream and fruits. other places costs at least 10,000won. but of course they differ in size too. hehe.
but basically dine in waffles are more expensive. many shops here have take-away waffles which only cost 1,000-2,000won. 1,000won for the normal waffle and 2,000won for the Belgian waffle.
the cream looks like it’s too much but to my surprise, it wasn’t actually really sweet!
ain’t this shop beautiful or what?

Seoul is not only the Kimchi land, but it’s also the socks land. you can easily find socks here. and the prices ranges from 500won – 3,000won! =D. but at most touristy places it is at least 1,000won.
