After put our luggage at the new hotel, then I’m going to visit my Korean’s friend, Nana. We met when study Chinese at Beijing. She made Tteokbokki, from then, I like Tteokbokki.
Her house is located at Songdo International Business District. And it’s far-far away from the city. We ride subway about 2 hours to Campus Town Subway Station.
Songdo International Business District (Songdo IBD) is a new smart city or “ubiquitous city” built from scratch on 600 hectares (1,500 acres) of reclaimed land along Incheon’s waterfront, 65 kilometres (40 mi) southwest of Seoul, South Korea and connected to Incheon International Airport by a 12.3-kilometre (7.6 mi) reinforced concrete highway bridge, called Incheon Bridge. Along with Yeongjong and Cheongna, it is part of the Incheon Free Economic Zone.
The Songdo International Business District will feature the Northeast Asia Trade Tower and the Incheon Tower. Schools, hospitals, apartments, office buildings and cultural amenities are to be built in the district. Replicas of architectural hallmarks, including New York City’s Central Park and Venice’s waterways, will also be incorporated. This 10-year development project is estimated to cost in excess of $40 billion, making it one of the most expensive development projects ever undertaken.
The first impression for this city is, Wow… It would be nice to live here.
My friend pick us at the station, and then we ride car to her apartment. This time also, her husband cook Tteokbokki for us, and it’s delicious. Too bad, I don’t know why, but this time I travelling to South Korea, I didn’t feel hungry at all. Even I still wants to eat, but I’m already full.
The apartment is nice and comfy. I would like to have one if I have a chance. haha…
After eat lunch, they take us to eat dessert in NC Cube Canal Walk Shopping Street. I saw this area once, on Running Man. So I know what is it.
You can shopping in here. And also a lot of restaurant and cafe in here. The shopping mall is unique, there’s a canal in the middle of the building, with fountain and many decorations.
After walking around, it’s already 3 o’clock in the afternoon. So we go back to Seoul. My friend’s husband has something to do in Seoul, so they take us to Yongsan E-Market to shopping. While her husband go to Dongdaemun.
On the way to Yongsan E-Mart, we passed Indonesian Embassy at Seoul.
E-Mart is the biggest and discount store in Korea. It’s very famous. The E-Mart at Yongsan is the 70th E-Mart in Korea. Located on the first and second underground floors of I’Park Mall (A Giant Shopping Mall connected to Yongsan Station).
It’s nice in here. For a special product, you can try it first then decided to buy it or not. We bought so many snack. Famous snack recommended by my Korean Friend.
I don’t know how to put it into my luggage haha…
From Yongsan, we ride subway to Dongdaemun and walk around there. We also eat dinner in Doota.
Cheonggyecheon Stream also can be reached from Dongdaemun. It’s more beautiful in night.
After that, we go back to hotel to rest and packing. Today is our last day in Seoul.
