16 Things That I Do In Seoul Korea I M So Sad This Has Come To An End
My final take on Korea post is coming to an end, and it was fun to discover Busan, Jeju and Seoul for a whole week. I'm pretty sure I will go back and dig dipper! Just let me know which are that I should dig up next in the comment down below. 😆
Check out this post on how to wear Hanbok in Seoul for Free!01. EID 이드 Halal Korean Food 🥘Right after we put our bag at our Airbnb, we are only craving for food! From Yeoshinnae to Itaewon, we get to discover authentic Korean food at Eid. By the way, Eid has been serving their homemade food to Muslim since 2014 (excellent!).
The time that we went to Korea is during summer transition to autumn, so I ordered some Samgyetang to cool down and Bulgogi for some meaty meal.
As you all might now Itaewon is a Muslim community hub, so this little cosy restaurant is located near Seoul Central Mosque, and it's pretty easy to look out for Halal food here.
INFORMATION:ℹ️ Eid Halal Korean Food📍 67 Usadan-ro, 10-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, South Korea.🕰 Open Tuesday - Sunday (11.30 - 21.00), Closed on Monday.
💸 Samgyetang (KRW12,000) & Bulgogi (KRW10,000)
🚆 A 40-minute train ride from Yeoshinnae Station.

Namsan Seoul Tower (남산서울타워) 💸 There was an interesting story I want to tell you about my journey to Namsan Tower, we walk from the beginning to the top of the tower. I won't lie that it is very tiring, and I personally felt dumb and half regret of that decision. Why half disappointment? Because the view all the way up there are just remarkable plus it's indeed calming and cold to walk.
I felt like Namsan Tower is a must visit even you didn't go up to the observatory. We apparently didn't do that, and we just walk around the tower to see the city view and the love locks. In the end, we took the bus from the tower to Myeongdong station.
INFORMATION:ℹ️ Namsan Seoul Tower 📍 105, Namsangongwon-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul.🕰 Open all year round.
💸 None, because I didn't visit the observatory.
🚆 A 30-minute train ride and walk from Itaewon Station.

Myeong-dong (명동) 💸 A place that we went for three night when we visit Seoul. I love this street, not just because of all the beauty shop around here, because of the food and a very calm nightlife.
It's inevitable to shop around here - clothes, Banana Uyu and K-pop merchandises. Oh my oh my, Myeongdong underground station is heaven for K-pop merchandise! I bought a Gong Yoo calendar, ONE, Winner and South Club album! For beauty, I can't list all of them (because it's a lot), but it's fun to shop and open order to others as well.
INFORMATION:ℹ️ Myeong-dong Station.📍 Myeongdong-gil, Jung-gu, Seoul.🕰 Open all year round.
💸 Can't list it because I don't want to remember the damage that I have done.

Located inside Myeong-dong station.Love this area!Ppogi (Old-fashion sugar candy) at the street.04. Bukchon Hanok Village (북촌한옥마을) 📸 'Hanok' - a home to traditional houses and still a housing area to lots of local. There is a sign that showed while you walking like 'This is a residential area. Please talk quietly', and we need to respect that.
It will take almost three hours to walk around the area, but I make it simple as I can as I know what to do or visit there: food - Grandhand - watch people in hanbok. So, first, we get our lunch at 항금알식당 (eat at your own risk, please check with Halal Korea for more information). It's a bit hidden at the alley, but I'm pretty sure you can spot it if you are from the station and saw this picture.
At Grandhand, my mom bought me a multi-perfume called 'Marine Vacth' - a mixture of pear, mandarin, rose, lily and toffee. Clearly, I still have it with me, and the smell is just like a fresh and clean sea breeze. Regarding the hanbok, there are tons of rent shop of the traditional Korea clothes, if you want to try you may, but scroll more, and you will spot a tip for free hanbok.
INFORMATION:ℹ️ Bukchon Hanok Village📍 37, Gyedong-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul.🕰 Open all year round.

🚆 A 29-minute train ride and walk from Anguk Station.
The architecture in Bukchon village area just mesmerising!항금알식당Really excellent customer experience at Grandhand!Hanbok journey starts from this village to the palace.Wearing comfortable clothes during travelling is a plus!05. National Folk Museum of Korea (국립민속박물관)📸 For me, this is a place to rest after walking through a mountain of Bukchon Hanok Village. There is a lot of people since it's also located beside Gyeongbokgung Palace and it's a new discovery.
I visit the museum out of curiosity. The National Folk Museum of Korea has three permanent exhibitions and two special exhibitions as well as a library, souvenir shop, and other subsidiary facilities.

The entrance of the museum.The museum area is actually the same area as the palace.One of the exhibitions that attract me.The rest area for the ladies and for me too, and this is where I lost my T-money card.06. Gyeongbokgung Palace (경복궁) 📸 If you are just out from the museum, go straight to Gyeongbokgung Palace. Especially if you are there from 10:00 to 14:00 except on Tuesdays because you will witness royal guard ceremonies, something that you cannot miss!
Another thing to take note is if you want to go inside of the palace you need to pay the entrance fee but, there is a trick, visit them during last Wednesday every month, and you will get free admission since it's their culture day!

This palace is so beautiful.Another up-close photo of the palace.This palace is crowded! Do you know if you wear hanbok, you can enter this for free? Yes, it is.07. K-Style Hub (케이스타일허브) 📸 This hub is more than just an information centre, and this is where you can experience hanbok once in your lifetime for free. Go straight to level 5 and start to immerse yourself in their traditional clothes. The best part is you can experience the hanbok outside of the hub for one hour after you submit your ID.
Love the experience, tons of choice to choose from, and it's astonishing to see the staff put it on to us. After hanbok, it's time to meet one of my favourite Korean band, Big Bang, virtually of course!

Cheonggyecheon Stream (청계천) 📸 A sun just shining at the stream when I walk along it. The hot weather than run through me this morning was forgotten because the stream cooling me down! There is a meaning about the Narae Bridge as it represents a butterfly in flight, and Gwanggyo Bridge, symbolising a harmony of the past and future.
The stream is near K-Style Hub and other attraction as well like Deoksugung Palace, Seoul Palace, the Sejong Center, Insa-dong Street, Changdeokgung Palace, and Channggyeonggung Palace.
Recommended to take a break in the middle of the city and just enjoy the cold water while dipping your foot inside the stream.
