Cafe Hopping at Ganghwa Island

Was so surprised when I found out that Ganghwa Island has so many cool and beautiful cafes. Located next to the sea, when tou visit cafe in Ganghwa Island, you will feel like being in Jeju Island. The wind, the trees, the environment is so peaceful. A supper recommended one-day trip itinerary with bf/gf, friends or family.

Mahogani Cafe

The first recommended cafe to visit is Mahogani Cafe. The design of the building is so similiar to Innisfree House Cafe in Jeju Island. As soon as I enter the cafe, i was amazed by how cool, how peaceful the cafe is. You do not need to go far away to Jeju Island to feel the vibe of Jeju Island. The main cafe building also has 2nd floor seats when you can see the blue sea throught the window. The food and drink? Amazing!

I’m Fine Cafe

This cafe is so much more than fine. This is my most favourite cafe among other cafes. Why? Because the cafe is way too cute (especially for girls) because everything is pink. Even the drink use a really cute cup and glass.  Second, the view is amazing, the best view among other cafes. If you come on sunset time, you will wonder why I like this cafe so much, because the sunset of this cafe is perfect. You can even go down, get closer to the sea to see the sunset.
