Wanderlust : Seoul, Korea (Day 4) [Insa-dong, Ewha Woman's University, N Seoul Tower]

Monday, June 02, 2014

Day four itinerary: 
- Insa-dong
- Ewha Woman's University
- N Seoul Tower / Namsan Tower

Love their informative subway system!

Headed out to Insa-dong early, it is located in the heart of the city, you will find lots of traditional goods there including traditional restaurants and art galleries.

How to find a decent tradition Korean restaurant to dine in? Simple, not all restaurants provide English menu so when there is, it's pretty tourist-friendly. 
On the table: Korean beef stew (to warm my tummy on a cold day), kimchi pancake (it is so HUGE!) and many traditional Korean side dishes. 

Was greeted by this flight of stairs when we arrived at Ewha Woman's University Station!!
Well I think brunch has been digested, let's go for round two :D

The main highlight of the fashion shops is located just outside Ewha Woman's University. It is so popular that it is often referred to as Ewha Woman's University Fashion Street.
Lots of girly stuffs making it a lady's heaven!

Doesn't it look yummy?!

I just have to buy every food I see along the way!!

I think I ate more than I shop there haahaas.
Before you know it, it's evening. My long awaited buffet dinner at N Seoul Tower!!

Now we just have to figure a way to the tower from here.

After exiting Myeong-dong Station, exit 3 and walk for about 15-20 minutes with lots of help many passer-bys and the not so helpful the map, we have reached the cable car station.

  1. nice travel blog. Waiting for day 5!

  2. how can book Hancook restaurant with email ? (I don't want to call by phone for reservation)

    1. Hi, the only mode of reservation provided is through phone. You can make the reservation when you reach Korea but please do so a few days in advance in case of fully booked situations, or you can get the hotel staff to assist you with the reservation, like I did.

  3. Hullo! First of all, great post - thanks for sharing! :) Just wanted to ask - how long specifically did you book in advance for Hancook? Not sure how far in advance people book over there, haha (The tower and its view look spectacular btw!)

    1. Hi 13Wishes, thank you for reading! :) to prevent peak period booking, I got the hotel host to call in few days before the visit date (subjective, I can't promise if it would still be available). Haa I'm not sure about their booking period too, but I would advice upon checking into your hotel, call to make the reservation as least you can plan out your days better. Once again, thank you :)

    2. Ah cool! Thanks Nikki!! Will do :)
