Moonella’s Pink Story in Seoul

Moonella and family came to Seoul for vacation! It’s such a very beautiful day which welcome their journey in Korea. The first episode of Moonella’s vacation in Korea is “Pink Story”. We went to the famous and “kekinian” cafe in Hongdae which all design is pink, Style Nanda Pink Cafe. She was the most excited when she found the small swimming pool inside the cafe and started to play with water. #rufustory captured all the happiness of Moonella’s Pink Story moment through pictures.

Mommy and Daddy should be also in frame!

Grandma, Uncle, Aunty and Cousin had their great time enjoying the lovely and romantic atmosphere of this cute cafe while uncle Rufus capture the moment beautifuly as well.

Zapangi Cafe

Everyone must know the most famous vending machine in Korea. Eventually this vending machine is actually the main door of Zapangi Cafe which is so cute, unique, iconic, and instagram-worty. Even though the location of this cafe is somehow far from the main city area, but many people do visit this cafe to experience entering the inside of vending machine while taking picture beside the vending machine is a must.

Once you get inside the vending machine, you will see a simply minimalist-style interior of Zapangi Cafe with some pink color ornament as theit iconic color. The room is not that big, it’s on the first floor of apartment building in residence area. But when you have a really good concept and marketing of a cafe, people will definetly value it.

They dont have that many kind of menu, but most of them are so cute with some special detailed colorful ornament on the drink / cake. One of the most favorit one is Rainbow Sherbet with the colorful cream and unicorn cookie as topping.

Gunpo Royal Azalea Festival

IMG_6482IMG_6465IMG_6308IMG_6296IMG_6301IMG_6310

Royal Azalea is really similar to Azalea (read here), especially the form of flower. The difference is only in the size of the tree because Royal Azalea tree is smaller and bloom 2-3 weeks after Azalea. The color is also the same, red, purple, and pink.

IMG_6396IMG_6446IMG_6291

The festival is usually held on the last weekend of April. In 2017, it was held between April 28-302017, which already ended for this year. However you can still see the flower until 2 weeks after since the flower bloomed a little bit late this year.

Wansan Park, Jeonju

If you look for the King Cherry Blossom and colorful Royal Azaleas, Wansan Park in Jeonju is the best place to visit. Since it’s located just next to Jeonju Hanok Village, you can reach this place after you spend some hours in the famous Hanok Village, only 30 mins by walking.

King Cherry Blossom is another type of Cherry Blossom flower, but the flower is more pink, bigger and has more petals.

[TIPS]

    • You can get to Jeonju by taking public bus from Express Bus Terminal to Jeonju city which is available every 10 mins
    • If bus terminal is too far from your area, the easier way to travel is joining oneday shuttle bus to Jeonju organized by Trazy where they have pick up points on popular area such as myeongdong, hongdae and dongdaemun. Click here Travel with Trazy
    • Once you arrive to Jeonju City (by your own) or to Jeonju Hanok Village with Trazy, read my instruction bellow.

[HOWTOGETTHERE]

  • Walk from Bus Terimal to Geumam Gwanjang Intersection (금암관장사거리) for about 5-10mins, and take right and you will find bus stop. Take bus 165.

  • (If you wanna visit after spending time in Jeonju Village, you can go to a big road next to Jeoju Cathedral, and turn left, towards a river and bridge)

It’s super recommended for travellers who come to Korea during late March until April 1st week to visit this city. Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival itself held between April 1 – 10 everyear. Why it’s so pretty? The whole entire is city is PINK as cherry blossom grows everywhere.

Gyeonghwa Station

Gyonghwa Station is used to be train station where cherry blossoms trees grow along the rail way. They also put the real train during Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival to make it more beautiful.
