Special Memory in Myeong-dong!
Did you hear about Myeong-dong?
As you know,
Myeong-dong is the most famous shopping place in Korea.
Also, it is a must-see in Seoul for tourist.
Many people think there is just shopping and crowded place. But on this tour, not only that, you can experience another fun in Myeong-dong!
That is making your own Hangul postcard and using ‘slow mailbox’ at Korea Postage Stamp Museum.
First of all, we will go to café named Cacao Green.
This place is my favorite place in Myeong-dong!♡
This café’s shaved ice with chocolate is wonderful!
(Strawberry ice cream also really delicious!)
In this café, we will enjoy these sweet desserts and make Hangul(Korean alphabet) postcard. I’ll teach you how to write Hangul whatever you want to write. The front of the paper will be decorated with Hangul, the back of the paper is same as an ordinary postcard. So You can write anything that you want to send.
After making a postcard, we will go to shopping! In Myeong-dong, there are many cosmetic shops and clothes shops. So Let’s get shopping together! I can recommend you which one is the most famous brand, style in Korea. In Korea, many cosmetic brands have a membership sale per month. If your tour day is on sale, I can help you to get products at cheap price. (But it is an irregular sale, so I don’t know when it begins.)
Second, Stamp Museum
After shopping, we will move to Korea Postage Stamp Museum. In there, we can watch an exhibition, and use ‘slow mailbox’ to send your postcard. The slow mailbox is delivered mail after 6month/a year system. If you send mail today, it could be delivered after 6month or a year (you can choose two of them). In Museum, you can also make your own stamps. You can take a picture at there or send a picture whatever you want to make stamps. Making your own stamps or buying ordinal stamps is your choice. With these stamps send the postcard!
Third, Korean Street Food
The final course is dinner! In Myeong-dong, there are lots of street foods. For example steak, bread, Tteok-bokki(rice cake), etc… We will try these street foods for dinner!
