No Better Way to Start The Day!

In the heart of the trendy Seongsu-dong neighbourhood in Seoul, there are many treasures to be discovered, yes – take a look at one of our previous posts here.

Maple Top is an iconic location deserving of a mention by itself!

The location is vibrant and lively from the moment you arrive. The design work by Jiah Park compliments the delicious treat, and SeoulTheJourney would love to direct you to Jiah’s portfolio.

As SeoulTheJourney was visiting from Canada, we felt compelled to enjoy delicious pancakes with a lovely coffee!

Of course, we have a few suggestions to follow that delicious breakfast/lunch/dinner, and we promise no more food!

As you walked towards Maple Top, we’ve no doubt you noticed several interesting buildings, shops and much more.

Maple Top is within the Seongsu Yeonbang, a hub of life, culture, and society-focused mini-style shops that include bookstores, F&B stores, and shared production facilities that protect small brands.

Take time to explore the shops and walk off that delicious food!


Common Ground is a hot location that can claim global fame as the largest container shopping mall in the world. It opened in 2015 and has since then hosted many festivals and attracts tourists seeking a unique shopping experience and paved the way for a continued container shopping experience across Seoul and Korea.

Explore the markets and certainly find a lovely few places for dinner – we won’t give you suggestions this time (we loved the Japanese treats!)

As we mentioned the trend for container locations, head north to Platform Changdong 61 and explore this equally refreshing and colorful location. Check out this blog for things to do near Changdong.
