There are three places in Seoul (well, according to where I’d visited) that I really love about….
First, is the Naksan Park
According to visitkorea website, Naksan Park gets its name from its camel hump-like appearance. In Korean ‘nakta’ means camel and ‘san’ means mountain. Yes, guys. It’s a mountain. What is so special about this place? For Hur, it’s the Rooftop Prince landmark (haha) and
a spot where Yoona(?)-was-here. Before you could reach the park you would have to pass through a neighborhood. Now, this is where the juicy part is. It is an art gallery neighborhood. Seriously. There were paintings almost everywhere. You can see paintings on the walls, houses and even stairs. They also made some really nice sculptors or some sort. I was very impressed. Some are just too cute I couldn’t resist but to stare and stare and stare.
Well, somebody thought it was worth a shot for camwhoring….huahua
Aww, it is just too damn cute! Even the store were decorated to please people like me who just can’t tolerate with cute things… (please don’t mind the meat store right next to it)
Even the cafe 🙂 Nice name don’t you think?
Does this camel got to do anything with the mountain’s name?
This is not a painting…
Look a little closer
Of course, me too. Wanna have my moment. But Hur, should’ve asked me to pose in a more appropriate posture rather than this awkward butt-off pose -.-”
According to Hur, this picture was taken because some of the Korean drama that she watched would have a scene in this place of some sort. What is this three instruments placed on a pavement in a middle of the neighborhood? Not sure, but I can only say that perhaps it’s a mini gym.
This picture is just to remind you of the hilly road. So fellow travelers, please be prepared not only mentally, but physically as well.
At last, we reached Naksan Park
Naksan Gallery, if you’re interested to know more about this place then this is the place to be. As for us, we really just want the pictures…hehe
Somebody is enjoying herself until she discovers….
More hills. Haha…Couldn’t get any better.
The view, the weather. I bet runners or joggers would have love to come here but, mind you. It’s very HILLY!
View from above
Look at that face. The face says it all to finally find a place to sit..hahaha
After all those horrible long walks of up and down the hill, we finally reached here. This is the only reason why we were up there enjoying nature. Tetttt! There’s really nothing there, it’s just a park. If only we know where are these things were, we would’ve not gone up the park. It was near to the entrance. So guys, if you are like us
(Hur) which is just to get hold of the Rooftop prince landmark, do not go up the hill. Upon reaching the entrance, turn to the right until you find this!
There are 5 art pieces altogether
This is the landmark Hur was dying to look for
Look who’s a happy child again,haha. Nah, I gave you a big picture here.
But, my favorite art piece would be….
This one! 🙂
A man and a dog overlooking the neighborhood. Simple, yet has it’s own meaning to it
It’s a shame that we couldn’t spend more time there cos actually there are a lot more art works that we hadn’t found yet. Hidden between the alleys and houses. For future travelers who has this thing about cute stuffs like me, I would advise you to google up all the art pieces and art works that they have there around the neighborhood. So that you wouldn’t miss looking for it like I did. Sad~ 😦
Anyway, it was really nice being there
