推薦的特色的民宿- Minari House:超有藝術氣氛!

好久沒有更新這裡,太懶了。

可能年紀大了,哈哈,近幾年來,我開始愛上了韓國旅遊。朋友們都不理解我為什麼這麼熱愛去韓國。我怎會不知道以前去過的歐洲、南美等等都比韓國美和更有特色,但距離香港近,而又讓我可以一次又一次的去完,還可以再找到我自己有興趣的地方卻沒幾個。超愛食韓國的食物,還有韓國的美術館,然後還可以去遠足爬山。

這次想介紹一下我去了七次(!)韓國以後,最愛的首爾民宿。這家民宿是新開的,是2015年3月才裝修完畢。我應該是首幾位入住的客人之一。

我上年一個人去首爾旅行的那次,住在舊的Minari House,住了八晚。那次我是在airbnb上找到了Minari House,看起來像是很有趣的地方,它把畫廊、藝術工作室和民宿合併了,成為一個很有特色的地方。然後價格也很合理!(你在airbnb上還能看到我對舊Minari House的評價。)

那次我住了八個晚上,所以和Minari House和他們A Company的職員都變成朋友,有一起去吃啤酒炸雞,晚上又在聊天。他們的公司據我所知,是一家嘗試幫助一些韓國年輕藝術家的公司,他們會辦一些Art Fair,會用他們的作品推出一些產品,會為他們提供工作室和幫他們售賣他們的作品去支持他們的創作。

今年他們剛剛搬到新的地方去, 就在以前的地方附近。這次我和朋友入住了新的Minari House。新的地方比以前的更大、更美,現在的地方就在韓國其中一個前任總統的故居旁邊。為什麼我會這麼愛住在這裡?

Recommended Seoul Guesthouse with an Artistic Atmosphere- Minari House

Sorry for not updating this site for quite a long time, I am too lazy. During this time when I haven’t been updating this site, I have become addicted to travelling in Korea. I have just came back from my 7th trip to Korea, and I have become like kind of an expert to Korea among my friends. I just wanna introduce this brand new excellent guesthouse for those of you who might be interested. Minari House is the nicest guesthouse I have stayed in SeoulI highly recommend it to anyone who is going to Seoul.

It is really brand new, it was opened like just in mid March 2015, I think I was one of the first few guests for the new Minari House.

My first stay in Minari House was in the old one in 2014 when I went in April on my own. I stayed there for 8 nights in a single room. I found Minari House on airbnb back then, it sounded interesting as it combines art gallery with guesthouse and artist residency together, one gets to view artwork, meet the artist who is working in the workshop and stay in the guesthouse all in the same time. The price is quite reasonable too.

You can read my review of the old guesthouse here on airbnb, I am sure you know which one is mine, haha.

As I have stayed there for like 8 nights, I have become friends with staff of Minari House (which is owned by A Company, a company that tries to support new Korean artists, from my limited knowledge, they also hold art fair to sell their work and sell products of their artwork, other than operating the guesthouse). And as I stayed there alone and had quite a relaxing schedule, I remembered I had quite a lot of time chatting with Han-byeol during that stay.

And they have just moved to a new place nearby. This time I returned with my friends. We were some of the first guests in the brand new place, the new place is bigger, prettier and right next to the residence of a Korean former president.

Let me tell you why I like it, so you can decide if you wanna stay here in your next trip.

I Hear Your Voice Filming Spots (5)- Hyesung’s Home

DO NOT REPOST THIS ANYWHERE ELSE, THANKS!

This is going to be the most difficult place to get to, the revolving door was difficult to find online… but it wasn’t difficult to get to, this one is the most difficult among the 5 filming spots of IHYV, because it is farthest away from the metro, so I suggest you should get there by bus.

This was one of the most interesting days in my last Seoul trip.

Before going there, my first destination of the day is Milkcow ice cream store. XDDDD I tried it the first time that day, Jong Suk just started endorsing this brand at that time, so there are no pictures of him in the store… This was taken at the Hongdae store.
