Kevin and I decided to go to Seoul for the day. The bus ride is only an hour and a half so it’s really not a huge deal and very doable in a day. Since there is so much to see there, I have a feeling we’ll be taking day trips more often!
I’ve posted about the cat cafes, but did you know there are many other themed cafes in Korea? Today, we visited the Princess Diary Cafe!
This cafe is a little girl’s dream and a woman’s guilty pleasure. First, you can indulge in one of their adorably delicious drinks (it is a cafe, afterall), but after you finish your drink is when the real fun starts. There are tons of dresses for you to try on, from party dresses, to wedding dresses, to traditional Korean hanboks. They even have suits, tuxes and hanboks for the men. You can embellish your look with accessories galore! Since Kevin and I don’t plan on purchasing hanboks for ourselves to take home – because really, when would we ever wear them? – we wanted to try on hanboks here!
For the women, they bring out little laminated copies of the different skirts and shirts from which you can choose. Some skirts were complimentary and others were 5,000 KRW. The different shirts ranged from 15,000 – 30,000 KRW. When you pick out what you want, they bring you the real life versions to change into. You have an hour to spend taking as many creative photos as you wish!
I chose a small sampling of photos to share with you. Check them out in the gallery!
Princess Diary Cafe is located off of the Ewha Women’s University stop on Line 2.
It is open daily from 11:30am to 10:30pm.
