핫도그, Hot-dog
Wow~ what a big dog. I went to food market at Shinsegye department store and took this big goodies. I like street food cause of price and taste. Hot dog is one of the popular street snack that you can enjoy it in 1000won(approx. 1usd) or a bit more price. This big thing attract so many people and made long line around this shop. What do you think? Are you watering now? =)

스타벅스, Starbucks
Beautiful decoration in the starbucks. I stopped by a Famille station branch on the day before yesterday. This branch has reall unique design and decoration inside. I felt like I was in the middle of birds with starbucks mermaid. I recommend you to visit here and enjoy a cup of coffee if you travel around Express Bus Terminal in Gangnam area. Shinsegye department store and Marriot hotel are right next building. Come and take a break with good deco. and coffee.

For more info., coffee is really big boom in Korea so that you might see a shop of starbucks at each corner of the street. You can take a rest, use toilet, enjoy some coffee and wifi. I think it is helpful spot for travellers. In Korea, popular coffee shops are starbucks, twosome place, ediya, coffee bean, Angel-in-us coffee, Tom n Toms, cafe bene, Paul basett. Most of shops have free wifi.

라면, Ramyeon
Are you looking for Korean style of noodles? Then, what about Ra-myeon? I think that I enjoy this at least two times in a week. I am sure that other Korean house might enjoy this more than I do. It can be called by instant type of noodles but it is really popular in Korea. I normally enjoy spicy taste noodles for dessert when I eat some meat. I took this after samgyeopsal time a few days ago. Why don't you try Korean ramyeon when you eat some meat in your home? I am sure that you will like it so much.

Enjoy delicious #ramyeon today #myfoodstory in Korea

팥빙수, Patbingsu
What do you see in this photo? I see a old machine of bingsu, ice flakes on the cart. I had seen this ice flakes machine a lot when I was little. Ice grinding by this machine was such an artistic work in my memory. And I remember that it was just 50won(5cents) to 100won(10cents) for small dish size. Now, this manual machine is in a hotel with butique decotation. What an art! I wish that I could enjoy cool patbingsu, ice flakes with red bean paste right now. If you travel to Korea in summer time, I strongly recommend you a dish of Patbingsu. It will help you a lot to cool down your hot body. Yes, put it into your Must-eat list in Korea.

처마, Cheo-ma
Are you looking for good coffee spot? What about here? I recommend you this spot, cheo-wa, under the Korean traditional roof. In the morning time of sunshine, beautiful sunbeam will make you up and gives strong energy if you stand and get a cup of coffee. I alwase looking for a good spot to make a unforgettable memory with a coffee shot. If you come to Korea to travel, you must do this at least one time in the morning. The feeling from the moment of coffee time would be totally different. When you take a sip of coffee, close your eyes and think of all happy memories in your life and then try to match with this authentic view. You could be a King or Queen of Korea at this moment. Sounds good? Ok, then put this into your Must-to-do list of your journey.

For now, if you are holding a coffee and look at this photo, close your eyes and imagine your happy memory. And then start your happy today ^---^"

테헤란로, Teheran-ro
Can you guess where here is? Yes, it is Teheran-ro where many office towers and buildings are gathered. I took this view in the afternoon around 5pm in last February. I strongly recommend you to visit this road to stroll along the sidewalk when you tour Seoul. At samseong station where the starting point of Teheran-ro, there are coex, the biggest shopping mall, hyundai department store, SMTown, World Trade center Seoul, Seven-luck casino, Bongeumsa temple. On the next stop, Seolleung station, you can walk inside of Seolleung park where you can meet royal tomb. And HQ of Posco, top steel maker of Korea is near here. At next stop, Yeomsam station, you can meet Gukgiwon, HQ of Taekwondo. And Gangnam station is on the right next station where you can join various pubs, restaurants and clubs.

It is so good to walk with a cup of coffee and enjoy great view of downtown of Seoul. If you are planning to visit Seoul, definitely, Teheran-ro will be your Must-vusit spot.

Come and enjoy #Teheran street in #Seoul #mytravelstory in Korea #thegreatspots of Korea #sunshine view of #downtown in Seoul

Where can you find Korean flag? I found big one at the east gate of COEX. Also, you can find it on the big street called 'Daero' in Seoul. I took this shot to share you a image of Korean flag which has blue and red circle in the middle with black lines. Here is a quiz to you. Can you guess what these colors and design means? I believe that each National flag has its own meaning. Your national flag too. Right? At front of this gate, you can meet lots of events or exibition all the time. Come and enjoy Korean culture here.
