The Ice Gallery is a cool little place tucked quietly off a quaint street close to the Anguk station. Perfect for little kids on a hot summer day, this place is a mini refrigerator maintained at a bone chilling 5 degrees below zero for retaining the ice sculptures. It has the typical rooms as in a home all made in ice- kitchen, bed room, a study room with computer, even a bar and bathroom with an ice potty! It also has a few famous Korean structures too. It also has an ice sculpture of the leaning tower of Pisa, Eiffel tower and the Statue of Liberty. All the things to touch and feel, an igloo to go and huddle into and a tiny slide makes it a perfect place for the kids!
Since we went on a weekday (though the school is out), we were the only ones there in the tiny little place and we had the whole place to us. But still, the whole tour around the ice gallery did not take more than 10minutes. As an added experience, we signed up for the ice carving and ended up making fairly cool wine goblets! We were then treated to a drink of fanta in our own goblets.

|Pretty streets, with no traffic. Just good food and beautiful flowers and plants around!|
