Your Best Travel Guide to Korea and Some Say More!

카페 앤아더 Cafe &Other x Seoul Forest + Understand Avenue

[Travel in March / April 2018]

This time round, I will be sharing with you, how to spend a day (or maybe half a day) at Seoul Forest! We will be heading to a container mall followed by a slow stroll at Seoul Forest and end at one of the most instagram-worthy cafe in seongsu area 🙂 So, let’s go!~~

Let’s start with Under Stand Avenue! 🙂

It seems to have many ideas in plan when having Understand Avenue. Mainly for entrepreneurs and artists who wanted to share their innovation right here. But it’s pretty quiet when I visited in the afternoon. 

A total of 116 colourful containers that you doesn’t want to miss any photo opportunity. My cousin and I had a great time taking ootd :p

Another photo-opp, this is apparently a stage for performances too!

Understand Avenue also has many different cafes, restaurants and even exhibitions.

Posing for yet another instagram-worthy picture!

Head over to Seoul Forest

This Seoul Forest is one of the largest park in Seoul city opened in 2005! Apparently, Seoul Forest has been a royal ground for the royalty and served as a military inspection facility. But for now, many people visited the park for family bonding and spending time with their loves one over picnics. I am very sure I didn’t explore the entire park as it’s about 180K pyeong big which consist of 5 different type of parks.

Remembered the big one at Hangang River here 🙂

Next: 카페 앤아더 Cafe &Other  (which located next to Seoul Forest!)

Cafe &Other is yet another instagram-worthy cafe that is so pretty in every single detail.

 

Very interesting concept looking cafe

Outdoor seats look really breathtaking but probably too cold for us

Order time! 🙂

heading to level 2

the view from level 2, the pool is one of the attractions! 🙂

As well as the igloo seating area, which remind me a lot of the igloo hotel in Finland.

we order the original cheesecake, which has a distinct flavour. The delicate cheese taste is definitely not overpowering and yet retain the rich taste.

My cousin ordered their green tea latte, while I had strawberry latte. I am definitely particular when it comes to strawberry latte, I love it when they used fresh strawberry instead of colour flavouring. The freshness of the strawberry definitely the reason why it’s taste sweet from it’s fruit. I have to say, it’s indeed satisfying 🙂
