2013 Seoul Trip – Day 4
Oct 25, 2013
Afternoon: Trick Eye Museum
Night: Korean BBQ at Myeongdong
Second last day in Seoul. Love the Cheonggyecheon under the morning sunshine as we left our hotel and headed to subway station.
今天的计划是江南区的狎鷗亭洞，新沙洞。 也许你不知道狎鷗亭洞，但是去年鸟叔那只红得发紫的骑马舞你不应该不知道：江南Style。 走出地铁站，觉得这里的道路真宽阔，不过街上大部分都是整容中心，哈哈。 不过有些建筑还是很有特色的，比如这个opera gallery:
Today’s plan is Apgujeong-dong in Gangnam-gu. Maybe you don’t know anything about Apgujeong-dong in Seoul, but I think all of you should know Gangnam Style by PSY by now. As we got out of Apgujeong station, it felt quite different than Gangbuk-gu. The streets are a lot wider, but most buildings are cosmetic surgery hospitals. Some buildings have very unique architecture. An opera gallery:
找这条新沙洞林荫道花了我好多时间。 不知道是因为买的旅游书上的讲解太差，还是我实在没办法衡量到底这300米有多远，最后找了一个韩国大叔问到了路。 这条路类似于东京的表参道（我的博客的顶部横幅），街道两边种满了银杏树。 这条街除了有各种艺术工坊外，还有很多特色的咖啡厅，艺廊，潮流时尚点，流行小物店。 在Smoothie King吃了午餐后，我们开始逛，还有一点收获哦！
It took me a long time to find Garosugil in Sinsa-dong. The Chinese travel guide I bought is so bad in instructions, or I had no idea how long 300 meter is. Anyways, I finally found the street by asking a Korean truck driver. It’s a street that very similar to Tokyo’s Omotesando (the banner of my blog). The name Garosu-gil is from the Korean word which means tree-lined streets, as the area is adorned with ginkgo trees. It’s a well known area for its galleries, restaurants, cafes, and small boutiques. After a quick lunch at Smoothie King, we walked around the area and got a few items!
下午3点多，坐地铁来到弘益大学站边上的Trickeye特丽爱3D美术馆。 美术馆内展示的2维图画，用肉眼看时会有3维的立体效果，当你站在图画面前，画中的人物就会像在和你互动一样，让你融入为图画的一部分，十分神奇。 馆里随时都充满了笑声，在这里可以花上很多时间，可以说这个美术馆是绝对不可以错过的景点。 因为都是家庭照，我就不放上博客了，给一张冰雕美术馆的吧台：
We then went to The Trickeye Museum in Mapo-gu. It is an art gallery with paintings created using ‘trompe l’oeil’ techniques that give each 2D art piece the illusion of being in 3D. Visitors can interact with the paintings, posing themselves just right so that they look as if they are part of the original work. I have to say this museum is very fun to visit, we had a great time there. It was full of laughter. Since all pictures are family related, I will not pose them here. Just a peak at the Ice museum:
哦，在首尔最后的晚餐去哪儿解决呢，当然是烤肉加啤酒！又去了明洞，很有名的姜虎东烤肉！ 好好吃哦，原汁原味！ 多伦多的韩国烧烤太中国化了。。。
Oh yah, for dinner, we went back to Myeongdong Kang Hodong Baekjeong for Korean BBQ, plus some beer. OMG, the best BBQ I ever had! Toronto’s Korean BBQs are all Chineserized.
