Apgujeong Rodeo: Café Dior by Pierre Hermé

[Travel during March-April 2017]

So many friends asked the same thing – “What’s so nice about Korea?” “Huh, you been there 14times already?” “Why not save the money to go elsewhere?” I got all the shocking looks and questions after knowing how much I love to visit Korea. My perfect yearly plan is to visit once in March and another late of the year. That’s because I can get to everything I wanted to do in Korea from Shopping, Grooming to Cafe. Yes that’s quite a keyword – Cafe Hopping. No Doubt, there’s so many cafes around the world, and waiting for me to explore too. But, Korea’s cafe give a really unique feel and their theme + concept are so different from each other (beware, there’s a few more cafe postings to come!!!!) I love how different the dessert/coffee are being served differently in Korea, and how different each cafes have their unique selling points to attract different audience. This definitely makes why cafe culture so strong in Korea too! :)

On this special day, I brought my cousin to Cafe Dior by Pierre Herme on her very special birthday this year. We should have the best meal today and decided to have a cafe days through out and ended at Namsan (more on that later!)
