20 Cafes in Seoul (Korea)

Photobucket
Korea is especially well known for theme cafes and pet cafes. Just in our neighbourhood, Hongdae, alone, there were countless cafes! We tried to cover as many as we could but with ever corner that we turned, more cafes just kept popping up! We only had 30 days and we certainly missed out on many beautiful cafes but here's our list of 20 cafes that are worth a visit!

Hongdae

I really wanted to visit the sheep cafe (Thanks Nature Cafe) but it was closed as it was summer and it got too warm for the sheep. Will definitely make a trip there when I revisit Seoul! Share with us your experiences in Seoul and also, your favourite cafes! Lastly, our holiday was Seoul amazing and we hope you enjoy yours too! Trust us, you won't wanna come back!
