Tips for you
“Glass Galore” Be careful what you do. Just kidding, fret not for breaking anything. The biggest chance of you breaking anything here would be in the souvenir shop. A beautiful museum to go to, to see everything created out of glass pieces. How a simple, yet breakable piece of glass can turn into an artpiece which seems as strong as the pillars of a temple. I like the glass tulips best, a great number of them around this museum. It really shows Korea being a Tulip country, as I get to see these lovely, brightly coloured flowers everywhere. There's a little cafe in there which I thought was a very beautiful cafe, made out of glass. The table you use, the chairs you sit are all made out of glass, added with colour. Surprisingly, the thing you should be checking out is the stand alone toilets, one for female, the other for male. Yes, it's made of glass and from the inside, you can actually see through to the outside! Don't worry, your privacy is intact while answering nature's call, because it's tainted black from the outside and people cannot actually see anything inside! So don't be surprised to see people taking a look at their reflections and doing funny poses while you are doing your business in the toilet. Have a good laugh instead!
