Youth or young travelers nowadays would definitely own at least one social media account. The most in trend social media now would be Instagram where people can upload videos and pictures on to their story which is available for only 24 hours and also on their feed where followers can view, like and comment on the posts. Having an attractive Instagram feed is pleasing to the eye even for myself so, if I were to find a place to take picture for my Instagram, and being the lazy person like I am so I would definitely go to places that already has a nice lighting so minimal or no editing is required. South Korea is one of the places young adults would go to travel with the on-going trend on the K-Pop industry and there are quite a few places that are Instagram worthy in South Korea. Here are the top 5
1. Haneul Park
Haneul Park is a park located near the World Cup Stadium. Haneul means sky in Korean and the reason why is because you need to climb up about 200 stairs to reach the park. At the park itself you could see the beautiful view of Seoul like the Han River and also N Seoul Tower. The best time visit this park and take picture is definitely during Autumn with the Eulalias and also Sunflowers! It is also one of the famous locations for a wedding photo shoot
2. Zapangi Café
If you ever been to Jibril in SS15, you will definitely understand how hard it is to find some hidden cafe or restaurant (unless you read something or have been told by someone before coming). Although it is not the same as the one in SS15 but the concept is almost the same where a pink vending machine mimic as a door to the cafe, and Zapangi (자판기 Ja-pang-i) literally means vending machine in Korean. They also serve a neat looking dessert like the mermaid cake served in a tin and their specialty beverage like Aurora which is a Mocha mix with chocolate, it is so pretty that you will automatically will want to take picture.
3. Common Ground
It is the first pop-up store in Korea built with a shipping container. It is filled with hipster vibe and does not carry major mainstream brands but it features the new designers clothing where this pop-up store can help them build their networks and also make their brands famous.
Other than shopping, it is also a place where you can dine in, relax and take a lot of OOTD pictures for your Instagram!
Almost every makeup enthusiast who actually know the brand 3CE will never leave Seoul without visiting any Stylenanda store, simply because of the cosmetics they sold and it is a very pretty place where you can take picture at every angle of the store. The ground floor with is the store is a hotel-themed store where everything was designed to look like a hotel lobby.
The clothing section is designed look like a place for you to do your laundry and they also have a pink pool cafe on the rooftop!
5. Chuu Store, Myeongdong
If you are a fashion enthusiast Chuu store is the way to go and they recently open their branch in Myeongdong, usually it is just a pop-up store or other branch like in Hongdae. Even though shopping is the main thing you come here but you could do more than just shopping.
