Hanok stay (Korea traditional house)

Bukchon Hanok Village in Seoul is the perfect destination for those seeking to learn about and enjoy the beauty of Hanok (traditional Korean-style house).

Therefore I chose to stay in Bukchon to experience staying in traditional korean houses. I made my reservations easily through email.

To get to the location is actually quite easy too but blame it on my bad sense of directions. I didnt get it right…. walked for about 15-20mins and all I could see is only shop houses.

According to the instructions given from the website, it says 10mins from Anguk station. @.@

Anyway its impossible to get there in 10mins! At least 15mins I would say.

A Korean came to my rescue and brought me to the place. There are kind souls everywhere πŸ˜€

Did you noticed something?? Take a closer look…!

gotcha

When past meets future~~ lol

I finally get to use this! Electronic password lock! Surprisingly at a traditional house instead of a modern house.

The room is cosy and but a little small. I love the blanket lol, its so clean, thick and warm with a scent of detergent.

The traditional paper-pasted windows makes me feel a little unsafe haha but overall its a pleasant experience for me. ^^

1) Pet cafe ~~

So far I have been to all these cafes listed above in Korea and my best choice is still dog’s cafe although im in love with all of them! I have been to more than 4 pet cafes in just 2 weeks lol.

My favourite one is located in downtown Daegu, because its a 2-in-1 cafe! You just need to purchase a drink at 8000won and you can visit both the cat and dog cafe~~ if my memory is still working well. I think dog cafe is at level 2 and cat cafe at level 1 πŸ˜€

The dogs are really friendly and there are bound to be 3-4dogs wanting to catch your attention. When you are seated, they will just climb up to your lap so that you can pat and stroke them. It will then be a good photo opportunity hehe and on top of that they are reallyyyyy cute!

See what i mean!! After that day, I realise i’m more of a dog person. ^^

PS, that day was the first time that I am not afraid of dogs.. at ALL!

Tip: Language might be an issue in Korea, so if you are looking for pet cafes do look out for words like 고양이 (cat) or 강아지 / 개 (dog) 카페 (cafe)
