韓國行 Day 2

韓國行 第二天 (Day 2 of Korea Trip)

韓國行 – 第二天的行程是:

Isaac Toast-梨花女子大學-弘益大學-3ce購物-樂天超市安東燉雞-南山公園&首爾塔-O’sulloc-仁寺洞

Here is the itinerary for the 2nd day of Korea trip:

Isaac Toast – Ewha Women’s University – Hongdae – Shopping at 3ce – Lotte Market – Andong jjimdak – Namsan Park & Seoul Tower – O’sulloc – Insa-dong

吃完美味的Isaac  Toast,我們散步前往梨花女子大學

After eating the delicious Isaac Toast, we start walking toward Ewha Women’s University.

Because my friend is looking for Korean Starbuck’s sakura tumbler, so we came to this Starbucks near Ewha Women’s University to see if they sell it. After coming it, we saw this sign, this Starbucks is actually the first Starbucks at Korea that is opened in 1999.

Walking toward Ewha Women’s University, you will see the famous Ewha Wall on your left side before reaching the main entrance.

Main entrance of the university

We were planning to view cherry blossom at Ewha Women’s university, but only one tree blossomed near the entrance.


If you walk downhill to your right, you will reach a complex for restaurants and stationary stores.


Ewha Women’s Univeristy’s large chapel.

Even though there isn’t much cherry blossom, other flowers are beautiful as well.

We walked around until the other side of the complex.

地址 (address):首爾特別是西大門區新洞
52 Ewhayeodae-gil, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul


After finishing touring Ewha Women’s university, we headed toward Hongik University and Hongdae Shopping District.


When we arrived at Hongdae Shopping District, we realized we got here too early. Lots of stores are still not open at noon. Hongdae is similar to Tapie’s Eastern District since it will get busy at night. Since there are many students near Hongdae, there are many special shops, restaurants, clubs, bar, BBQ store, coffee shop! I would recommend everyone to come here in the afternoon at the earliest.

▲遠遠的看到STYLE NANDA  的巨大招牌
I can see the large sign of ‘Style Nanda’ from far away.


After telling the employees what product I desire, they gave me a number sign.

What I want is put into the cabinets near the counter, all I had to do is to give the number sign to the cashier and they will help me out. There is no need to carry stuff around while shopping. Awesome!

弘大快速拍照打卡完,我們就去LOTTE Mart採購,之後回到明洞民宿放東西。再到明洞附近吃安東燉雞,吃飽是下午四點左右。我們就前往南山公園&首爾塔。
After pictures and checking-in at Hongik University, we went shopping at Lotte Mart, then we went back to Myeong-dong to put stuff away. Soon after, we went to eat Andong jjimdak near Myeong-dong. We finished eating at around 4pm, then we headed toward  Namsan park and Seoul Tower.

When you reach the bottom of the Seoul Tower, you will see an elevator. This free-to-take elevator will take you directly to the gondola ticket office. If you don’t want to get in line for the elevator, you can take the stairs too.

The elevator is quite steep

售票價位 :

I bought round-way tickets. They will rip the right part off when you go up, and the other park when you come back down. Be sure to keep your ticket safe if you bought a round-way ticket.

On a Monday afternoon around 4pm, we waited about 40 minutes until we got on the gondola.

Takes about 3 minute to reach Namsan park

There are couple locks everywhere at Namsan Park, this place is very suited for a couple date. These layered locks are so dense, feel like it will collapse at any moment since the locks are very heavy!

View of Seoul City from Namsan Park

Seoul’s city planning isn’t too structured, or maybe I am just not too familiar with Seoul yet. I could not tell where is where.

Octagonal booth at Namsan Park

Seoul tower and love locks.


Since we want to finish our plans, we didn’t wait until dark to go up to Seoul Tower for night view. Hopefully next time I will get a chance to see a night view of Seoul city ?

離開首爾塔後, 我們來到仁寺洞。仁寺洞位在地鐵3號線安國站的六號出口。出口出來後往仁寺洞大街步行約五分鐘就到了。

在去的路上還到了O’sulloc買了綠茶冰淇淋來吃 ? ?

After leaving Seoul Tower, we came to Insa-dong. Insa-dong is located at subway line 3 Anguk Station’s 6th exit. Its a 5 minute walk after exiting the station. On our way there, we also bought green tea ice cream at O’sulloc. ? ?

▲ Insadong的 Ssamziegil商場 (Ssamziegil market at Insa-dong)

Ssamziegil 是仁寺洞的新地標,來韓國之前,我的好朋友強力推薦這裡。這是一座約四層樓高的建築,裡面是複合式空間,進駐了超過70間的個性小店。裡面充滿濃厚的文創氣息,除了販售一些傳統文化的商品之外,還有許多特色創意商品。

Ssamziegil is a new landmark of Insa-dong. Before coming to Korea, my good friend highly recommended this place. This is a 4 floored structure with more than 70 small stores wth characters inside. Inside is filled with a creative atmosphere. Besides selling cultural merchandise, there are other creative goods.

You can see cute decorative art and graffitis everywhere in the Ssamziegil market.

Inside Ssamziegil you can see a hollow design. From first floor, the hallway spiral up so that you can follow and shop on the hall all the way to 4th floor without taking a single stair.

地址 :首爾特別市鍾路區寬勳洞38
서울특별시 종로구 관훈동 38
44 Insadong-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul
時間 (hours):10:30~20:30

There are lots of alleys centered around Insadong street. After shopping at ssamjigil, we got a taste of traditional korean culture at the alleys around us.

Walking at the road paved with Quartzite in Insadong, I feel like I am at a Taiwan’s old street or China’s Dali old town. (Perhaps all the old street with ancient history are paved with Quartzite? ???)


We are destined with Starbucks today. The sign 스타벅스커피 means Starbucks Coffee. This Insa-dong’s Starbucks Coffee is the only Starbucks of the world that does not have English Sign. From the internet, I found out that when Starbucks want to open in Insa-dong, the culture-rich residents of Insadong strongly opposed the proposal. So to compromise with the locals, Starbucks made the acception to use a Korean sign.

Besides Starbucks, all other signs are in Korean.

After going through today, I think you can put Insa-dong in the morning since the pictures of the creative goods here would be more beautiful, then you can head on to Hongdae since the store there open later. You can also get a taste of the night-life at Hongdae.

樂天超市 Lotte Mart

樂天超市 Lotte Mart


Besides eating and drinking and sight-seeing in Korea, another important thing is shopping at grocery stores. How can we not shop around during our trip in Korea. The easiest gift to get for family and friends is cookies? Now I will share what I bought at Lotte Mart.

▼首先搭車到首爾站「1號線(133)首爾車站 、4號線(426)首爾車站」。從1號出口出來,出手扶梯往右走就可以看到大大的LOTTE Mart招牌。
First, take the subway to Seoul station (1st line 133 Seoul station or 4th line 426 Seoul station). Take the No 1 exit, you can see a large ‘Lotte Mart’ sign after taking the escalator and walk toward your right.


You will need to put in 100 won to use the carts here






Green: Banana Milk
Red: Strawberry Milk
Blue: Low Sugar Banana Milk
Brown: Coffee Milk

Aloe juice, I like the sour and sweet taste and the aloe bits


There are so many kinds of instant noodles in Korea, most of them are spicy.


The well-known shin-ramen.


▲農心 炸醬麵  NongShim Jjawang


I find this quite delicious, the noodles is chewy.


▲這個Market O的Real Cheese Chip超級推薦!起司味真的很濃郁,也不會太鹹!我輕輕鬆鬆磕完一盒!大家來一定要買回去!

I highly recommend the Market O’s real cheese chips! It has a very flavorful cheese taste to it, but not too salty. I easily finish a box by myself. Everyone should give this a try and bring some back to Taiwan!


▲Market O 系列的布朗尼也很好吃! 吃得到巧克力顆粒,但也不會太甜。

Market O’s brownies is also delicious, you can taste the chocolate bits yet its not too sweet.


▲Iris Cookies & cream 買回來送給好友,朋友很推薦

I bought Iris Cookies & creams as gifts for my friends, they recommend this.


▲CROWN 威化餅  Wafers


The brown box on the left is Hazelnut, and the right side blue box is white chocolate. It smells good and it is very delicious. Also the inside is all small packages so its easy to share with your friends and family.


Yam cookies.


▲  樂天自有品牌的餅乾。這個和日本pocky 餅乾很像
Lotte’s own brand of cookies, very similar to Japanese pocky.


▲Lotte Farm on the Road Green Chococo


Green tea cookies, slightly sweet without any bitterness.



If you reach 30,000 won here you can get your tax returned. There are many online articles about how to get your tax return here. But when I get there, I only needed to show my passport while I was checking out to get my tax returned. Maybe they change the rule, but it is quite simple and saved a lot of time to be able to get the tax returned right there in Lotte Mart.
