Photo Diary: Walking around Deoksugung on a Seoul Summer’s Day

Walking around Deoksugung Taking Photos

This week, what was supposed to be an innocent trip to Kinko’s turned into a lovely stroll around Deoksugung. Walking around Deoksugung was so peaceful and gave me such a cool relief from the sticky summer air here in Seoul. I spotted many beautiful l things along the way and I of course had to document it all. If you head to this part of Seoul near City Hall, you will be sure to find a lovely cafe, sculpture, gallery or restaurant along the way.

Lunch at ‘Le Pul’, Jung-gu / 르폴

I ate a delicious chicken panini from a little cafe called ‘Le Pul’ and really enjoyed the familiar feeling the interiors gave me. Definitely check out the cafe if you are ever in that area and in need of a cheap and quick fresh lunch!

General Drink Shop / 제너럴 드링크샵

On my way home, I was desperate to quench my thirst so I stopped off at the General Drink Shop in Gwangwhamun. I had just been to Kyobo Book Store to stock up on my sticker collection and buy a new Moleskine diary. I loveed this drink, I ordered a Lemon Jasmine Ice Tea. YUM! And also, how cute is the cup it came in? Love it.

Alone in Seoul – Night Time Edition

I came across Seoul’s answer to the NYC High Line whilst wandering through the Seoul Station area at night. This area has a very different feel to it, the area around the train station in particular. I felt slightly unsafe for the first time since being in Korea and was convinced that at least 4 people were stalking me but I think that says more about my paranoia than stalker crimes in Seoul. I’m trying my best to take better photos at night time but they all more or less turned out like the last one in this thread: just rows of multicoloured dots in place of cars and street lights. The Seoullo Sky Garden near Seoul Station is great to do at night if you’re alone in Seoul and want to talk to some plants.
