我寫我途

國泰員工的首爾推介

LEE EUN-KYUNG ASSISTANT MANAGER, MARKETING AND DIGITAL SALES 市場推廣及數碼銷售副經理 THE HISTORY BUFF

There’s lots of modernity in Seoul – but there’s also plenty of history to be charmed by.

An example is the Korea Furniture Museum, which has over 2,000 pieces of traditional furniture within 10 beautifully preserved hanok houses in the hillside village of Seongbuk- dong. Visitors can take in the views over the city from the attached garden.

Elsewhere, Huwon, the so- called secret garden at the rear of Changdeokgung Palace in Jongno district, is as serene and secluded today as it was in the days of the royal family.

For a break, stop off in one of Seoul’s many cafes. My favourite is Coffee Hanyakbang. Hidden down an alley in Euljiro, it has shabby- chic interiors with vintage furniture and roasting equipment – and it serves some of city’s best drip coffee.

尋幽訪古

首爾有許多摩登的事,物 但亦不乏令人發思古之幽情的歷史文化。

韓國家具博物館是就 其中之一。這家博物館位於山坡上的村莊城北洞館, 內有十間保存完好的傳統韓屋,合共收藏了逾2,000件傳統韓國家具。家具博物館有相連的花園,訪客可以在這裡俯覽城內風。光

此外還可以參觀昌德宮的秘苑,這個王宮的後花園位鐘區於 路 ,其中亭台樓閣與園林景色美不勝收,氣氛寧宜人,與古代王家貴住族居 時並無二致。

暢遊古蹟名勝後妨,不 在市內眾多咖啡店找一家小坐作,略 休息。我最喜歡的是位於乙支路一條小巷內的Cof fee Hanyakbang。咖啡店內有舊家具和烘焙器具,洋溢懷古的風;格 至於用來奉客的滴漏咖啡屬城中上乘之選。

YOO SEUNGWOOK CORPORATE SALES EXECUTIVE, SALES AND MARKETING 公司銷售主任,銷售及市場推廣 THE OUTDOOR TYPE

Yeouido, an island on the Han river, may be Seoul’s financial heart (and Skyscraper Central) but it’s also the city’s green lung.

Stop by the National Assembly building and take a tour of the adjacent library (free – but advance booking is required). Once you’ve ticked those boxes, make a beeline for Yeouido Park and its tree-lined cycling paths (bikes are available to rent), lake and lawn. In spring, the arrival of the cherry blossoms casts the park in shades of white and pink; while in early October the park becomes the backdrop for a spectacular firework festival.

Around this time of year, you’ll often see young people camping alongside the river, busking with guitars by the paths or putting on live K-pop performances in the evening.

戶外生活

位漢於 江上的小島汝矣島是爾首 的金融中心,也是摩天大廈林立的市中心區,同時亦是城中的綠色市肺。

島上還有國會議事,堂毗鄰就是國會圖書館,非常值得參觀。參觀圖書館是免費的,不過需要預約。參完觀 畢,順可以 道到附近的汝矣島公園遊逛。園公 內有綠夾樹道的單車徑(也有單車供遊人租用)、湖泊和草地;每到春季,園公 內櫻花盛放時,園公內可以見到一片雪存與粉紅的顏色常,非美麗壯觀。到了10月,初 這裡就會舉行壯觀的煙花匯。演

每年到了這個時候,你就會經常見到有不少青年人在漢江河畔露營,或在路旁拿著結他彈自 自唱,娛人娛己,樂在其中;到了晚,上 這裡亦不時會舉行韓國流行曲演唱會,氣氛熱鬧,讓人盡情享受這個綠色空間。

HONG JI-IN SENIOR MARKETING OFFICER 高級市場推廣 THE INSIDER

Start your day with brunch on the terrace of The Grove, a hidden gem in Seorae Village – a secluded cafe-lined neighbourhood known as Seoul’s Little France.

Then go for a walk to Montmartre Park, a hilltop park where wild rabbits roam and the views extend over to nearby Gangnam district.

After all that, you’ll want to pop into one of the area’s bars and restaurants. CraftBros, a tap house and bottle shop, is one of my favourites and serves dozens of interesting brews. In Seoul, hon-sul (single drinking) is pretty popular, so don’t be shy and find yourself a barstool.

For dinner, it’s hard to beat Doughroom by Soigné, where the chefs make the pasta fresh from the open kitchen. Try its signature squid ink capellini with garlic butter, shrimp and chives.

社區度深 遊

首先到位於瑞來村的The Grove餐廳在,坐陽台上吃早午餐,只有熟悉這裡的人才知道這個好地方。村瑞來 是個氣氛安舒適的社區,區內咖啡室林立,有「小法國稱」之 。

飯後可前往位於山丘上的蒙馬特公園,你可以見到野兔在公園內跳躍跑奔 ,也可以從公園望眺 附近江南區的景物。

散步,之後區到 內找家酒吧餐坐或 廳下,小方一杯。CraftBros是我非喜的常 歡 啤酒吧,應供生啤及瓶裝啤酒,有數十種之多,每種別都 有風。味 在首爾,一人獨方(韓語稱為hon- sul)非常普遍,因此不必害怕尷,尬 只管挑選喜歡的酒吧進走 去就行了。

至餐於晚, Doughroom by Soigné的水準是無可比擬。的 大廚在餐廳的開放式廚房裡即時製作各式新意鮮 大利麵食招。牌菜墨魚汁幼條麵配香蒜牛油、鮮蝦及香蔥味道一流,不可錯過。
