Woke up late so we started a little late 😛 went out from the guest house around 10 am…. (I think for a tourist that’s a little late ryt? 🙂 )
Anyhow, since we found F&C Academy (this is where our CNBLUE boys started) when we were on our way to our guest house at night, but didn’t get a chance to take picture because 1. it was a little dark ‘coz it was almost midnight 😛 2. We’re with someone and we’re both shy to stop just to take a picture of the area since we are still searching for our guest house 😛 …. so while on our way to the train station, we drop by F&C Academy and snap a pose…..
so here’s me with CNBLUE’s Entertainment School… 🙂 F&C Academy
after the quick pictorial we just notice that there were 2 roads to take… we are both confused if which road is the right one going to the train station 😛
Anyways, we decided to walk straight…. and to our surprise when we reach the main road! on our left we saw this
and if you are a KDrama lover you know exactly why we are so excited to see this! It may not be the original Coffee Prince Shop (by the way the original CP was under renovation when we wer in SK) in the Drama Coffee Prince but still we felt happy to see it 🙂 … we had our breakfast here… coffee shops is everywhere in SK… if you’re a coffee addict then this place is the best for you 🙂
then heading now to our original first stop! The Hwaseong Fortress
How to go there and want to know a little about Hwaseong Fortress? … click here
please don’t ask me of a detailed information on how I reached Hwaseong Fortress 😦 (I’m too bad with directions :-() I even forgot which exit we took when we reach Suwon Station…. for sure my friend Jo can help you with that! (you can see a decent blog here) 🙂
Anyways, when we went out from Suwon Station we took a taxi instead of taking a bus 🙂 (we just don’t want to waste more time waiting for bus to arrived) that’s why we decided to take a taxi… it cost us I think 3,500 won.
so we stroll around Hwaseong Fortress after we bought our ticket that cost 3,000 won each….
here’s our pictures
more of Hwaseong Fortress pictures here
after strolling around we bought souvenirs in a souvenir shop then took a bus going to Suwon Station.
Now, on our way to NSeoul Tower…
get off from Myeongdong Station then Exit 3 … as soon as you will get out from Myeongdong Station you will immediately see NSeoul Tower. We just follow the map going to NSeoul Tower but I think it took us an hour locating the correct way to the Cable Car.
Actually there are 2 ways to visit Namsan Seoul Tower 1. You can ride a cable car up to the Mountain or 2. Take the No. 3 Yellow bus up to Namsan Park from Chungmuro Station. NSeoul Tower is one of the a-must-see Tourist destination in Seoul.
Long queue in the Cable Car, but hours of waiting didn’t make me feel bored 😛 I enjoyed listening to kids around me playing and those lovers in-front of me talking 😀 (yeah! I was listening but don’t worry I don’t understand everything haha).
and finally it’s our turn to ride the cable car… 😛 I was really excited haha… it was my first time to ride a cable car 😉
here us inside the cable car…. even though there was a lot of people inside (packed cable car) we still manage to snap a photo 😛
HELLO NSEOUL TOWER!
Strike a pose then went to ticketing counter to buy ticket for the Teddy Bear Museum (3,000 won), We just bought for the Teddy Bear Museum ‘coz we decided not to go to the observatory since it was foggy and it was a bit cold so we think that we might not enjoy 🙂
Here us with the Teddy Bears… 😉
it shows on our faces that we really enjoy Teddy Bear Museum
Now, we went out to see the padlocks.. we went to the Roof Terrace and for me is the most romantic one. see the lovers below? …….
We both forgot to buy padlocks so instead we use a chopstick wrote our names and the date of that day….
we stayed there I think until 7:30 after seeing the light show (pic cr to coby….)
we decided to go down….
heading now to our 3rd stop…. Myeongdong
We stroll around Myeongdong and then my friend Jo recognized Migliore Building where you can buy KPop CDs…. 🙂
Big smiles we had at that time… the KPop CD located on the 3rd floor…
I think we spent almost 200$ 😛 haha it was indeed a KPop Overload for us 🙂 and thanks to Ajumma for giving us a lot of freebies (of our fave KPop groups).
from that building you can see a lot of beautiful Korean Dresses actually most of the shops there are clothes 🙂
after buying KPop CDs we just realized that we’re so hungry 🙂 so we look a place to eat and we found this restaurant (pic cr to coby)
it taste good… 🙂 actually I just love all food from South Korea lol! by the way it’s a bit spicy and if you have low tolerance with it then this food is not good for you 😉
after our dinner we decided to go home…
When we reach the guesthouse we didn’t sleep immediately, even though it was almost a walk all day Day 1… we still manage to chat a little and laugh while looking at the KPop CDs that we bought and we arrange the things to do on the next day… then after arranging the things we decided to call it a day… and that’s around 2 am 🙂
