First day in Seoul: In and around Samseong-Dong/Cheongdam-Dong

Friday, October 26, 2012

Hey Lovelies, 

I'm in South Korea, it's still pretty hard to believe myself! It happened so quickly. 
Today I had a free day to do my own thing before the major tour starts. 
I visited a Temple called Bongeunsa in Gangnam. This temple was built in 749 during the Joseon Dynasty and it was the largest in Seoul. I felt a little nervous looking around so, next time I visit a temple I'll feel more confident and try to get more snaps!

After visiting the temple, I made my way to Cheongdam-Dong. This is the fashion district and it reminded me of Bourke street in Melbourne but, it felt a little unorganised. 
I found H&M which you may know is my weak spot! So, I was so excited to have finally made it to a H&M! 

Time to get some beauty sleep for tomorrow! I'll be going to Seoul Fashion Week, visiting IFC Mall, then heading to Ilsan to attend MBC's "Show! Music Core"!
Such a huge day planned, I'm so excited!

Please follow my instagram for more updates! 

Love you all!
