Building 63 and Sunset in Seoul
You all know that I do love sunset. Ask my close friends and they’ll tell you that I have a lot of sunset photos. I love the beaming rays when the sun goes down. It turns everything to gold.
Awesome! Postcard perfect! And yes, watching it is an excellent way to end the day!
When in Seoul, one of the best places to watch the sunset is at Building 63.
I’m gonna bore you first what I did yesterday. I moved to a hostel. It’s already paid and so I have to consume it. I had to leave early and sadly from my very accommodating couchsurfing host.
Hongdae Hostel is very easy to find. It’s right there at the subway exit and opposite the bar district where students hang out and male foreign males go to check out young Korean girls. Ew!
I do recommend this hostel. It’s spacious, safe and clean. Not to mention the guy cleaner who is really good-looking and has a nice butt. LOL… I’m salivating just talking about him.
I left my heavy backpack in the hostel and off I went to do some sightseeing. But, first, I had to meet a friend who’ll go with me around the city.
BUKCHON CULTURE CENTER
There’s not much to see here but renovated traditional Korean-style houses which are only like less than ten hanoks. These are not residentials but turned into some kind of a tiny museum and where women (I saw no men there) do artistic stuff like weaving, painting, sewing, etc…
I went there to kill the time before going to Changdeokgung Palace nearby at 11:30 a.m.
Don’t start asking me why the building is called such a name. 😀 Well, it actually refers to 3 basement floors and 60 floors above ground level. Sum it up to yourself. Haha!
Together with work colleague in Beijing, we went up to Seoul’s Tallest Building — once upon the time.
The building has 249 meters (817 ft) high, it is the 3rd tallest building in South Korea (as of this time) and the 135th tallest building worldwide.
It is overlooking the river so the view was quiet stunning especially at sunset.
