Nakwon Station Cafe, Ikseon-dong, Seoul

Personally, I thought Ikseon-dong was a much nicer neighbourhood to stay in than Myeongdong. Here, you get the best of two worlds - blending traditional culture with modern cafe. Ikseon-dong is a hanok village build in 1920. Although it is not as big as Bukchon Hanok Village, it is still a must-visit area in Seoul for cafe-hopping as there are so many different thematic cafes, hanok cafes and restaurants.

Instagrammable Starfield Library, COEX Mall in Seoul

Shutterbugs and instagrammers, if there is one spot you must visit in Seoul, it's the Starfield Library located in Asia's largest underground mall, COEX Mall in Gangnam. You will be surprised to learn that the library is a permanent part of the mall and open to all.  

The two storey open space library is home to over 50,000 books and magazines with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. Occasionally there will be centerpieces set up right smack in the middle of the library depending on the season.
