CHILLIN IN EDAE

Two weeks ago, I had to meet someone in Edae to get my tickets for INFINITE concerts. Edae, also known as Ewha University, is a famous place for shopping. There are a lot of little shops in the area. Since it is close to the university, there are also a lot of street foods and restaurants. 

After walking for a while, Tokki and I decided to do our first purikura (photo stickers) together. There was a purikura shop in the area, there were several purikura machines. 



In most of the purikura shops, you can usually use, for free, accessories such as hairbands, hats, wigs.. for the photos ! 


After taking the photos, you have to decorate them in a limited time, so you have to be quick ! And then you just have to wait for the machine to print out your purikura ! 



We chose a Japanese machine so it made us have big alien eyes hahaha. 

After doing the purikura, we walked a little bit and looked for a place to eat jjajangmyun (짜장면). In Seoul, you will usually find people wearing a red tshirt with a hat, they will give you information about the shops around, the cafés, the restaurants... We actually asked them where we could eat jjajangmyun !





I forgot the taste of jjajangmyun, and could actually not eat the whole plate. When it comes to Korean food, their plates and bowls are really really big ! I never finish my dishes :(
After eating, we just walked in Edae, looking for interesting shops.





We actually went randomly to shops only for the air conditioner because it was really hot on that day haha. We found some little shops with cute stuff. I was actually looking for a Korilakkuma pencil case but I could not find the one I bought last year :(













In the end of the afternoon, we met Sheemon and her friends and we went to a coffee shop, Mangosix. I had a waffle again. It was good but I actually did not like the ice cream, it was a yoghurt ice cream and it did not really match the waffle. I thought it was vanilla ice cream haha.



After Edae, we decided to go to the Namsan tower, also known as the N Seoul Tower. The tower was right behind our guesthouse so we just walked a little to take the cable car. You can also go to the tower without the cable car, you can walk (I don't know how long it takes since I am too lazy to walk) or take a bus. It costed around 8000 won to take the cable car, and around 9000 won to visit the tower where you can enjoy a night view of Seoul.





In the basement of the tower, you will find the teddy bear museum. We were a bit in a hurry so we didn't have the time to visit it ! But I will someday.







We took the elevator to go to the observation deck. We enjoyed a beautiful night view of Seoul thanks to all the lights ! But I think you should also visit this tower during day time, I guess it's really different ! I will someday, maybe during my winter break (because it is really hot during summer !).




You can also find a gift shop in the observation deck. There were also restaurants on the other floors, but I guess they are expensive ! I want to try one of them, it must be amazing to eat on top of Seoul city haha. 






And here is a night view of Seoul, not from the observation deck but from the bottom of the tower. 


Before going to the tower, we spotted a barbecue restaurant but when we came back it was already closed. So, we went to a restaurant next to our guesthouse. It was slightly more expensive than the one we had the day before and it was not as good, so I was a bit disappointed.




To finish with, I shot a short video of the streets of Edae, enjoy :)

  1. Ah c'est trop cool les accessoires qui sont à votre disposition pour les puri ! C'qui est chiant avec certains puri c'est que t'as que une minute pour les décorer et d'autres où tu peut prendre ton temps...

    Tes photos prises de la tour sont trop belles ! Tu m'as trop donnée faim ugh..

    1. Au final moi je les vois pas trop les accessoires sur les puri mdr. Oui, là en vrai on a pris notre temps, je crois que le mec a bloqué le temps pour nous car on trouvait pas la salle où décorer, genre y en avait une à côté mais c'était pas ça fallait changer de côté --"
