the hilly neighbourhood of sam cheong dong삼청동 is characterized by numerous small art galleries, shops, and restaurants. 

we saw an interesting door of a shop, which is made of glass encased stones!

we walked along the streets…

& stopped at latteya café for some KRW13,000 green tea bingsu….

& strolled further up the streets, looking at the yellow ginkyo trees in autumn splendour, carpeting the streets with lots of fallen leaves…

many restaurants & shops…

there was this long queue across the road…

so after reaching the end we turned around…I talked to couple foreigners in the queue..they came with their Korean friends, had no clue what it was about, basically a good Korean restaurant, maybe good price too..

we bought a churros (I think it was cinnamon) & a coffee & sat at a bench & relaxed & munched…

& that's the prime minister's residence

we walked up the slope to the Bukchon Hanok Village (북촌한옥마을)…

these are the old Korean traditional houses…

there are several streets with these old houses…

we entered one of them…

along the lanes there were many small groups of Chinese ladies dressed in hanbok, or traditional Korean dresses, and taking photos…they didn’t appear to be Taiwanese, though I could not really tell…

many people adults & children were taking this ice cream…

having done with Sam Cheong Dong 삼청동, we returned to the anguk station.

we were thinking of visiting namsan in the evening just before leaving for our flight.

before that we wanted to have a walk in myeongdong, so we stopped at myeong dong station, & wife go to do some window shopping at lotte town.
