Spent a weekend in Seoul as my wife just got some rather cheap air tickets. We took the early morning flight to Incheon airport. Time was just fit to check in the hotel. Our hotel was at somewhere near Ewha Womans University (梨花女子大學). The hotel was a hot spot for Hongkongers, room is quite decent.

After we checked in, we went find something to eat before we went to our first sightseeing spot. We went to a BBQ shop at Sinchuen (新川) area. The interesting thing was that they do not offer you a seat, a stand up BBQ. Food is nice, but the sauce is excellent, we enjoyed the sauce more than the food actually.

After BBQ, we went to a small village called 北村, a place full of old style Korean House (韓屋). The place is quite classic and nicely built, a bit artificial tho.

Our dinner was at 廣藏市場, a famous market and a hot spot for tourist. This market has over 100 year history. We ate at the stalls and shop. Food?.....ummm very traditional but fresh, because they made to you after you ordered. So you have to sit with a large crowd and wait for your food.

After dinner, we took a short walk to Dongdaemun (東大門). The famous building was not the Dongdaemun itself, but a rather new building called Dongdaemun Design Center, a landmark building you can see from any advertisement in Korea.

The facade of the Dongdaemun Design Center can change its colour and the architecture of that was nice, a lot of curvature facade tile which is very labour intensive to build. Irregularity seems to be the theme of this structure, which is evidenced by its internal staircase and foot path.

Second day, we went to visit Ewha Womans University. This university now turns out to be a hot toursit spot. There are so many tourist there to visit its nice building structure and it was said that the University management had put a banner there asking tourist not to disturb the students there. Even some buildings have signage prohibiting non-students going in. The University is nice, quiet, classic and elegant. Some of the structures is nicely built with modern design.

One of the famous spots of Ewha Womans University is the so called Ewha Wall (梨花牆). It is located at the entrance of the university. It is said that a girl will find her Mr. right if she took a picture with the wall......

Opposite to the wall is a street for shoppers. The landmark structure is a pink high-heel. The street is very good for ladies, full of cosmetic products.

After that, we went to 駱山公園. This is a village with lot of grafitti and wall painting. On the footpath throughout the village, you will see a lot of different art work, even on the staircase.
