Trendy restaurants in Seoul!

Seoul is full of trendy and western/European style restaurants. You can have pasta , pizza , curry , naan etc ;) or French style bread.
I would like to introduce couple of them :
Jenny's Cafe in between Hapjeong station and sangsu station line 6.
It is Italian style pasta and pizza restaurants and some of dishes use wine as ingredients

Mad for Garlic. It has franchises all over Korea. Beautifully decorated from inside. I will recommend to try their snow garlic pizza :)
Gangnam station exit 12 branch is not crowded on Sundays ! Try your luck there

Extending these surprises to a chocolate fashion show !!
All of these new experiences and surprised can be found out at chocolate Show which is getting bigger every year.

Skiing and snow boarding at Vilvaldi Park

There ain't many outdoor activities in Korea during long and cold winter.
But skiing parks are crowded despite weather over there is chilly !
There are many skiing parks near to Seoul. Among these famous ones are pyeongcheong, hi won, Vilvaldi etc.

Vilvaldi is relatively close to Seoul for one day commute. Ticket price including rentals plus entry to park ranges from 35-45 thousand ( discount included). And a free shuttle bus is available too!
