Autumn in South Korea – Seoul Central Mosque, Cheonggyecheon Stream

SEOUL CENTRAL MOSQUE

Everytime we travel around, it’s a must for FF’s to at least pay a visit to a local mosque. Since we’re staying in Itaewon, we decided to go to the Seoul Central Mosque. What makes it more iconic is because this is the Korea’s first mosque and the only mosque in Seoul by now. One thing that really caught our eyes is definitely the big green Arabic letter of Allahuakbar, God is the Greatest. And personally, there’s always an immense feeling of calm and warm everytime you see this House of Allah S.W.T. Continue reading

Autumn in South Korea – N Seoul Tower

Right after our trip to Nami Island, we rushed back to Seoul town as we wanted to go to N Seoul Tower or formerly known as Namsan Tower. This is basically a communication and observation tower located on Namsan Mountain in Central of Seoul. Since it is located in the city centre, it offers a panoramic view of Seoul and the surrounding areas too. Amazing! Just amazing! It’s best if you could also experience the whole view during day and night. In order to do this, the strategy is simple – be there right before the sun set. Check the sun set time locally too to avoid frustration and disappointment. When we were there, the sun set at 5.40pm.

Autumn in South Korea – Bukchon Hanok Village, Insadong

Bukchon Hanok Village is a local traditional village located in between the two famous palaces of the Joseon Dynasty which is Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung. Instead of walking all the way up to Bukchon Hanok Village, we decided to take the subway line and stop over at Anguk Station. Yes! We need to save our energy since we gonna do a lots of walking today. This village is a home to countless numbers of traditional ‘Hanok’ originated during the Joseon Dynasty. Nowadays, some were used and transformed as a traditional centres, tea houses, restaurants and etc. Do bear in mind that this is basically a residential area. The least that we could do is to keep our noise levels at the minimum as possible. Do show some respect and to keep the privacy of the residents too. Continue reading
