We visited several areas of interest in the Gwanghwamun area on our last day in Seoul and every place was just within walking distance from each other. We started walking from 126 Mansion to Bukchon Hanok Village. We followed the “Bukchon 8 Views” map and were lucky to take photos in 6/8 of those views. Not bad, eh? 🙂
In the afternoon, we went to Hongdae and had coffee at Hello Kitty Cafe.
Photos are down below.
As I said, we went to Hongdae in the afternoon and because we didn’t want to walk any more, we just got a cab and split the bill among us. There’s a tourist/visitor helpdesk there and the assistants spoke good English. Right across the helpdesk is the street where you can find food carts, restaurants, shopping stalls and many others.
Hello Kitty Cafe can also be reached through that street. I would suggest that you visit the tourist center and ask where Hello Kitty Cafe is. That will save you time from guessing where to go. You will be given a map of Hongdae so it’s easier to reach other destinations in the area, not just Hello Kitty Cafe.
It was almost dinnertime when we got back to 126 Mansion and it being our last dinner that trip, we decided to stay at 126 Cafe and order our super favorite Seafood Fried Rice!
And that wraps up my Heart and Seoul 2014 series but it definitely won’t be the last of my adventures in South Korea. Seoul is a beautiful and vibrant city that never fails to leave me in awe. I actually dreamt of living or working there one day but I’m not getting any younger so now I’m just dreaming of visiting Seoul whenever I have the time. I really won’t get tired of coming back over and over again if only to taste their delicious food, hang out with their friendly people, and discover new places each time.
