Plan Your Trip to Korea [Part 3] Cafes in Seoul

Hi All!
I’m counting down 11 days to Korea!! I’m pretty excited about this trip! Found lots of hidden places in Seoul!

In Seoul, every where you go you can definitely find cafes on the streets!
I’m not sure whether is it Koreans love coffee or they love to enjoy their time chilling out in a cozy cafe?

We going to do lots of cafe hopping in Seoul for our coming trip!

Let me list down a few of our must go cafes and I will do a more detail review when I back from my trip ok?

*Google maps is a very useful tool to search for your location! I will always google map the address of the place I want to go and get directions from there. Street view map allows you to see the surrounding places so you won’t be unfamiliar with the surrounding when you reach there.

1. Kona Beans

If you are a Super Junior Fan (ELF), you should be very familiar of this Cafe owned by SJ 3 members’ ( Leeteuk, Sungmin & Kyuhyun) mothers.
I’ve been to Kona Bean twice during my previous trips to Seoul.
