On our day 3 in Seoul, we started the day by going to the Sky Rose Garden which is located on the 8th floor of the Daehan Cinema (대한극장), one of the first movie theaters of Korea.

The garden offers the perfect way to add a novel twist to an otherwise cliché date. You can grab a coffee, and head up to the garden to surprise your date before/after the movie with impressive city views and beautiful roses would be a great idea for a romantic outing! And the best part is, there is no entrance fee for the garden! Hoorey!

We proceed to Garosu-gil in Gangnam area. Garosu-gil is a nice area for shopping and to enjoy the elegant beauty ambiance at the same time.

Variety of cafes and designers’ shops can be seen along the way. You might get yourself bump into some celebrities too while you shop in this area.

We visited the LINE & Friends shop which is located in Garosugil and we were so excited since LINE characters are familiar to us. From keychains to character t-shirt, variety of desserts and cookies, you definitely will have a great time there! ^^


After Garosu-gil, we went to see the K-Star Road which is located in Apgujeong Rodeo area.

Not only that, Apgujeong Rodeo Station is adorned with graffiti art, as well as walls and floors decorated with artwork and special name plaques of Hallyu stars.

We couldn’t spent much time here as it rained suddenly when we were there. And yes, it is a must go spot for K-Pop fans!

We went to a wedding studio called INI Wedding (아이니 웨딩) located in Gangnam. This wedding studio is one the famous in that area and has been voted as the No. 1 place for wedding consultation.

They have a few studios but the one that we were able to check out was the studio called ‘Be4One’. From mini outdoor garden concept until classic style, it is complete for a beautiful wedding photo shooting. Their quality of producing excellent wedding photos is no doubt one of the best!


We went to KSpa for our spa experience. This spa is located in Gangnam area and is frequently visited by Korean celebrities and K-Pop idols such as EXID, Super Junior Henry, Seo Kang Jun and many more.

There are many types of massage service that they provide for the customers and one of it would be the couple massage. They even have special room for you and your partner to do the spa. You will experience a whole body massage which will make you feel fresh and fatigue free. From our own experience, the spa session definitely helped in energized our tired body. We really think that it is the best ever!

After the rejuvenating spa experience, we then went to Namsan Tower which is well-known as one of the romantic places in Seoul and popular among couples too.

At Namsan Tower, you will get to share the romantic activities such as the Love Locks and Love Message Tiles. Many couples visited this tower and put their love locks here. The love locks can be purchased from the gift shops or you can even bring your own! ^^

After our Chinese meal dinner at the 63 Building, we went to Hangang River E-Land Cruise Ferry Terminal to take the ferry and enjoy the scenery of the famous Banpo Rainbow Bridge.

Hangang River Ferry Cruise is one of the best ways to enjoy the scenery around the Hangang River, which flows through the heart of Seoul. On the cruise, you can see Hangang River’s beautiful scenery, various small islands, Jeoldusan Park, the 63 Square, Namsan Tower, Jamsil’s Sports Complex, and other famous tourist spots.

The cruise is often used for weddings, birthday parties, music performances, and other events. The tours often have live performances featuring piano and other instruments. During the summer, the docks also offer motor boat rentals.

The view from the cruise was so beautiful and romantic and it will surely make someone wants to fall in love.

This restaurant is well-known as the emotionally romantic Sky Dining & Bar with European-style garden restaurant overlooking the Han River and the center of Seoul.

Overlooking the beautiful night scenes from high above the ground, this restaurant would be the best place for proposal. I can imagine how romantic it will be! The ambiance, the setting, the food, EVERYTHING just emotionally romantic!
