Salt Coke Casual Lounge Bar @ Rodeo, Apgujeong, Seoul.

Salt Coke is a relatively new bar on Rodeo in Apgujeong. It's getting increasingly more popular because of the cheap drink prices in an area that is otherwise usually pretty pricey. I stopped in for a few drinks the other day. The bar itself has a trendy feel, it's minimal and mostly white. There's a dj playing on weekends. There's also a few projector screens playing movies, Toy Story was playing on the one by me. Awesome! The music was good and the bar was moderately busy. I think it will get much busier as more people hear about it though.

Cocktails start at 5,000 won and go up to9,000 for Mojitos. In this area you'd usually pay at least double that. They also offer various bottle sets. An Absolute Vodka set is 69,000 won including mixers and a choice of side dishes. So if you want a bar that still feels like Apgujeong without the price tag head here.

Totally Non-Seoul or Blog Related Stuff A.K.A Distraction!

Hey Ya'll! I have no idea why I just typed that. I'm not even from America, let alone the south of it.

I think it could be because for the last few hours rather than doing something productive, like writing something interesting or at least relevant for this space right here, I have been looking at peopleofwalmart.com

I don't know how I'd never heard of it or seen it before as it seems to be pretty popular. I can tell you there is some funny (also quite weird, disturbing, gross, odd) stuff right there. Some not so much. But some, so so SO much! Or maybe I just have a low grade of humor.

Vogue Fashion's Night Out - Shopping @ Myeongdong, Seoul.

I've been so busy this week with one thing and another. I'm so happy that amongst other things I got to go shopping on Vogue Fashion's Night Out. The night was held here in Seoul in Myeongdong on Wednesday 21st September.


East Coast: DMZ North Korea Goseong Unification Observatory

This is probably the best view you can get of North Korea if like me you're too much of a wuss to go in on an organized tour.


East Coast: Where to Stay.

When visiting the east coast it can be difficult to choose where you want to stay.

There are many independantly run pensions, which are similar to a bed and breakfasts. You can check out some of the pensions online through a google search. Or you can check this list of Gangwon-do Pensions.

If you are looking for somewhere with more facilities or more luxurious then there a number of hotels in the area too.

East Coast: Getting There & Away.

Yesterday in Korea was the national holdiday Chuseok. It's similar to Thanksgiving or so I'm told. Being British I couldn't really tell you if that's right or not. What I can tell you is that usually entitles everyone to a long weekend. This year I was lucky to have a five day weekend! I decided to go on a roadtrip to explore some of the east coast of Korea.

Since traffic is notoriously bad here, especially on holidays, my partner in crime, Steve, made me wake up at some unearthly hour but apart from that the whole trip was so much fun.

Here is us on the road with all the 'notoriously' bad traffic.
