Here they are!! I hope you enjoy my pictures and get to live and experience a little bit of South Korea through my pictures 🙂 I took so many shots so I tried my best to narrow them down and show you my favorite ones!
I was in Korea for a week to visit four of my friends who live in Seoul as well as traveling with my family and friends to discover a new city. I was surprised to hear that another friend of mine who lives in China was also going to be in Seoul the same week! I met up with her as well it was a nice surprise!
I know they say to turn off all electronics on the plane while its preparing to land, but how could I when I was able get beautiful shots! I took a couple of quick ones- I promise I turned my phone of right away >.<
Our first adventure was taking a boat cruise to see the city at night! We passed by under a bridge that had a water show with lights! They told us to go inside or else we would get wet :p
This was by far one of my favorite breakfast spots. It was one block away from our hotel and they had all types of bread and pastries. I was sad to leave Korea because I was going to miss this bakery so much 😦 However, my friend told me that they also have one in Korea town where I live!! Yay know I know where I am going this weekend!
The food was incredible! They serve you little plates so you can taste everything. Sea food is very popular there so you mostly get sea food dishes. The round circle in the middle was for us to cook our chicken, pork and beef! It’s fun to cook with all of your friends and smell the food being cooked 🙂
One of my favorite things that we did was go up Seoul Tower to see the huge city at its best! We had to go on this cable car to reach the top, there was no other way. So if you are afraid of heights..just close your eyes 😉
At the top of the Tower, they have a lot of locks that couples leave behind as a good luck for their relationships. It was very cute to see all of the locks and little messages that people left behind. Here is a picture of a stone where some people express their love for each other.
We also got a chance to visit some palaces! This palace was called Changdeokgung Palacae! My favorite palace that we visited had a huge garden called the secret garden that had so many beautiful scenery’s.
I have never seen such a cleaner metro system than in Seoul! I loved it 🙂 Everyone in the metro is always on their phones, it kind of reminded me of Washington DC and New York.
This was Lotte Young Plaza Mall! It was spectacular, so many floors, so many beautiful clothes, it was heaven! It is located right near Myeongdong. This is one of the most popular shopping district in Seoul, South Korea. It features from mid to high priced of local and international brands for young people and tourists who are fancy for up-to-date fashion. You can find all kinds of things such as fashionable clothing, accessories, handbags, shoes, skincare products and various international food offered over 300,000 square meters of perimeter in Myeongdong. The prices are fixed in the retail outlets but you still can bargain at the stalls along the streets if you intend to buy a lot. Myeongdong opens the whole day but it becomes very crowded with people at night.
This was our last night in Seoul! I got a shot of us coming back from the metro to our hotel room. It was wonderful city filled with surprises and delicious food!
