Seoul Searching

While waiting for my cousin's arrival from Tokyo, we had enough time for a day tour around Seoul. So glad that Zena's apartment in Chungmuro was only 5 minutes away from the Namsangol Hanok Village.

Namsangol Hanok Village is a traditional Korean village that features different houses from the Joseon era. Admission is free, how cool is that? ;)


This is actually my second time to be here. First time was in July 2013.

We didn't stayed that long and headed towards the shopping district of Myeongdong.

Weather was a bit cool that day, probably between 15-18 degrees yet that didn't stop us from having this tall ₩2,000 ice cream.

We then travelled for about 20-25 mins. via bus going to Seoul Folk Flea Market.

This is the main reason why we're in Seoul. Yup, vintage cameras.
Paolo's obsessed ever since he spotted this photo from my Seoul Folk Flea Market entry last year.

Apart from old cameras, there were stalls selling pre-owned cameras. Some are a bit expensive, you'd rather get a new one. Lol.

Of course we spotted more bags. But remember, they're FAKE ok?

We left the flea market empty handed and went back to Chungmuro. :) My sister got hungry and had no idea where to eat, she just want fried chicken. Fried chicken it is!

There are a lot of small restaurants in Seoul so for sure hindi kayo magugutom.

Juicy, deep fried and oily fried chicken! Just the way she likes it. Haha.

We spotted a lot of photography stores on our way back to our apartment.

Chungmuro is the "camera capital" of Seoul. Anything and everything related to photography, printing, cameras, etc. is here! Very much like Manila's Hidalgo St. in Quiapo but of course with less crowd. ;)
