For our third day in Korea, we decided to leave the hotel at around 9:30 am to go to Hongdae.
Hongdae or also known as Hongik University is a famous place for the young and hip! You can eat, shop and even party here! 
How to get there: Ride the subway and alight at Hongik University, exit #9. Walk for about 250 meters then turn right. You'll see on your right the lane full of shops and restaurants! Don't be too early though cause shops normally open around 10:30 am or 11 am. IMG_0104
Once you arrive at Hongdae, you'll notice the big H&M outlet.

The shopping marathon starts in 3..2..1.

We passed by a store called "I Love Flat". And I tell you, it was truly love at first sight!
The pair of flats I purchased here are comfiest flats I own now. I'll include ze pair of flats in my upcoming fashion haul post.

Oh yes, a sweet ending it is.


  1. I love the photos Korea looks beautiful loving the street art and all small details.
    Im hosting a giveaway you should check it out if you'd like.


  2. Hello heaven! Hindi ko napuntahan yan! Nalulungkot ako! :(

  3. If you were to give a suggestion, how much would be a proper budget for shopping in korea? :)

    1. Hi Gizel! I think it would greatly depend on where you want to shop. If you plan to shop in H&M, Uniqlo, Basic House and other popular brands, you might want to prepare a Php 20,000 shopping budget but if you want to explore the streets of Hongdae and buy from the shops there a Php 10,000 - Php 15,000 shopping budget is enough!

      I'll be posting a Korea fashion haul so you will have an idea how much things cost in Korea.
      Stay tuned for that and thanks for throwing in a question!

  4. Oh wuuut, I am even more excited to go to Seoul in autumn right now! I will read (at least) all your post regarding Seoul. Everything in Hongdae looks so colourful and sweet (and those cupcakes, n'aww)

  5. thanks! x

    cool shots! Korea looks beautiful :)
