Walking the K-Star Road

Do you like K-pop? Then Seoul has a couple of places you must go. I’m not a big fan of K-pop but I have a friend he is, so I went to SM Town to find him something small as gift. I think I made a post or vlog about SM town already! I think K-star road is less interesting, because it’s just a bunch of different colored bears in Gangnam, but maybe they have special meanings to K-pop fans, when I was in Gangnam I took some pictures there.

Since I look like an awkward fake K-pop fan I won’t take picture with all the toy bears.

nice color they choose to pave the road.

Jongmyo Shrine in Seoul

In Seoul there are a lot of shrines, I didn’t visit a lot, I think only visited this one because that day didn’t plan much.

Jongmyo Shrine was built in 1395 and it houses 49 tablets and 19 chambers of its past kings. Quite large per size. It also has the longest wooden buildings in East Asia.

Square in front of the shrine that you can see Nansam tower.

Korean uncles playing go in the park near the shrine.

I love spring time in Seoul.

They were preparing some culture performance that day, soon after my visit, they closed some part of the shrine, so I can’t go closer. Otherwise I could have taken more close-up pictures. I guess you will have to go to Seoul to admire this beauty.

Little garden.

Cute hotel in Bangkok

Steemfest 4 will take place in Bangkok! I was there not so long ago during Songkran. Stayed in a cute little hotel in Phaya Thai, near Ari BTS. Convenient location and close to Chaktuchak market.

Cute decorations.

Full of photoshooting people, literally photoshooting. Check their instagram location page, nobody swims but everyone poses around.

(Instagram Influencers working hard)

Welcome to Asia!

I was a bit shy to pose much (simply no talent to be an influencer I guess) but I did take a photo or two there, looking forever awkward when I pose I know haha.

Hindu temple Ponagar in Nha Trang

I was surprised to see Hindu temple in Nha Trang. Didn’t know there’s hindu influence in the country. Ponagar was a temple complex built in 8th century.

It’s a bit outside the center, you can take a geab or bus No.4 from the beach to the temple.

The temple isn’t that big, but nice if you go in the afternoon a bit before the closing hour, to avoid crowds and to enjoy the sunset and great view.

Temple is well maintained, you may find it not as impressive as the bigger ones you see in India, but otherwise it’s interesting to take a look.

You can have a great view of the city from here. But do come before or after all the crowds, otherwise it won’t be much fun I believe.
