45 Days in Seoul: Day 11 Hongdae

Finished my job on Saturday early and had a quick stroll in Hongdae area named by Hongik University nearby thus it's very popular amongst young people. Hongdae is home for Seoul's indie scene and countless of bars and pubs. It was the first sunny and warm day so terraces were crowded with people having hangover brunches and couples on dates. A lot of unique street art, cosy cafes, galleries and shopping options.


Amazing (propaganda?) posters outside of one Korean restaurant. Wish I could read the slogans


Had a coffee at 405 Kitchen. It is very common here that you get a 1-2$ discount if you have your coffee as take-away instead of staying in. Also, likewise in Japan, tipping is not a custom in Korea.

After Tokyo, which is probably one of the cleanest city of the earth, it was shocking to see streets covered in empty bottles, cigarette butts and noodle cups etc.
