Before you go , Read this : 


Where to go in Korea?
Recommended Places to go in Seoul :
( All of these places are easy accessible in Seoul )

Insa-dong Traditional Street :
It's like an old street, selling a lot of souvenirs , yummy traditional food and street food, designer and craft building ( Ssamziegil ) 

Garosugil , the little Europe in Seoul :
A lot of unique brand and designer boutiques here, a little pricy but worth for a walk. The streets are good for photo shooting, a lot of special cafes and galleries gathered here. My Korean's friend told me that you will easily see Korea celebrities or models here

SamChung-dong & Book Chon Ma Uel :
a place whereby art galleries, coffee shops and dessert stores gathered. Nearby to Book Chon Ma Uel, the north village. Definitely worth for a walk and take some memorable photos.

Myeong Dong night market :
A well known place that everyone will go in Seoul . You can buy a lot of things here especially cosmetics and skin care products. The good thing that you buying in the Myeong Dong cosmetics store is because you will get a lot of samples on every purchase. You will also get a free Mask or a box of cotton once you enter to their store. So sweet ~~~   >v< On top of that, The Lotte Duty Free Department store is here .

Ewha/ Edae University & Hongik University :
They are just nearby to each other. I enjoyed both of the places as they have a lot of reasonable price shops selling trendy clothing and accessories. A lot of street markets here and Some of the students selling their craft and handmade stuffs as Hongik University is famous for design and art.

Apgujong-dong :
A lot of hair saloon and restaurants gathered. I got my hair perm done in Nihke in Beauty, Apgujong-dong. Super satisfied until today ^^

Gangnam :
Everyone just think of "oppa Gangnam style " lolxx.. Local Korean usually gathered in Gangnam for dinner , drinking , singing or clubbing. A super happening place whereby pretty ladies and smart guys gathered. Trust me, just spend your night time here and you will never regret. Let's try their chicken and Beer! Super good match ~ You may try their club as well if you well dressed as my friend told me that : this is the best clubbing experience ever after he went to Korea's club. =.= But I don't have any experience before, maybe next time? hahaha

Kwang Hwa Mun :
The main sight seeing place where the Seh Jong Dae Wang "sitting". There are some temples and street for a walk in the day time. This is nearby to Insa-dong.

Jamsil Lotte World :
A theme park like Disney Land in Seoul. Entrance ticket is reasonable and Lotte World combined both indoor and outdoor park. There is a big ice skating inside the theme park and a big castle in the outdoor. Definitely worth for a visit if you love theme park ^^ 

Sincheon :
A place similar as Gangnam , crowded during dinner hour and a place for drinking and karaoke. (no rae bang )

 I try my best to note down everything here... >v<
