Hanok Starbucks @ Gyeongju

There are more cafes at Gyeongju than we thought. However, next to our Hanok BnB is this huge 2 storey Starbucks that caught my eyes. Their amazing white architecture that stood out like the pearl of the town, illuminating with a touch of emerald free. The whole oriental essence felt like they had a story that whispers mythic legends behind it. Like how the white tiger and the jade dragon were the guardians of the land and they merged into one, protecting the sacred land of Gyeongju today. It stood out.

It really did.

The interior is consistent like how the commercial titan looks like. Their balcony is however locked and only built for aesthetic purposes. I looked around to find groups of locals socializing, in their quiet chatters, creating a soft layer of white noise over the light music that plays in the background. There had been little to nonforeigners over here, and this is probably what makes this town a more unique experience.

We got our coffees to go while we get a cake from Dal Komm. Call it a treat, for I won’t have done any of these in Singapore or if I solo travel. But this Starbucks certainly created a lasting impression in my heart.
