Our presentation is about Beautiful Road Trips.
There are many Beautiful Roads in seoul.
There are a variety of types of these roads such as café streets, culture streets, historic streets, and food streets.
Our group selected two themes. One is ‘traditional streets’ such as Korean-style house villages in Buckchon and the other one is ‘modern streets’ such as café streets in Samchung Dong.
What we can do on those streets are taking pictures of spectacular views, seeing galleries, walking along beautiful roads, and eating delicious food.
These streets’ atmosphere is made by old buildings, road trees, and wall paintings.

This picture is taken in SamchungDong. These drawings are on the walls of Samchungdong street.

Hanok Maeul is the village where all the Korean traditional houses are placed. This photo was taken from Hanok Maeul. You can see such a spectacular view from there.

Gallery in Samchung dong exhibits variety types of ceramic wares. Also, very dreamy drawings are exhibited. Those drawings were all taken during the process of ceramic wares making.

There’s also a café street in Samchung dong. Like the picture above, there are many beautiful buildings.
