Vlog Entry #6: Lantern Festival – Jinju, South Korea

During the first weekend of October I went to the Lantern Festival in Jinju! To read more about the festival, view the related post here!



2014 Jinju Lantern Festival

Located in the south central part of Korea, Jinju is a small city of just 300,000 people. But for ten days a year, nighttime traffic is bumper-to-bumper and walking the streets means shuffling, wading and weaving through crowds of people. Why? The Jinju Namgang Yudeong (Lantern) Festival.

**Seoul Coffee Capital**

Coffee Korea, coffee culture korea, coffee seoul, seoul travelAt first South Korea and coffee don’t seem to have much in common… Until you go to Seoul. The city thrives with a strong coffee culture with literally thousands of coffee shops! From all the different chains (Tom N Toms, Caffe Bene, Holly’s Coffee…) to the huge number of independent coffee shops all rivalling with incredible atmospheres.

The diversity in both the beverages and the decor is quite amazing. Compared to Western countries there is so much more creativity, attention to detail and presentation. Themed coffee shops are popular, with cat cafes or character cafes (Charlie Brown, Hello Kitty…) and cute is big thing here.


Ansan Mountain – Nature in the Urban Jungle

Mount ansan, ansan, hike seoul, hiking seoulAt the heart of a 10 million inhabitants city like Seoul, who would expect to find a great hiking spot like Ansan mountain? When you need a break from the noise and the crowd climb one of the many slopes for a mini retreat.

Hidden among the trees are several exercise areas, Korean style picnic tables and even a natural spring. Koreans are really fond of hiking, especially ajummas and ajhussis (middle aged Koreans) who sport colorful hiking gear and walk-up with their friends.
