A hanok-inspired Starbucks in Korea just opened its doors to patrons yesterday on 20 October, and it looks so stunning

Located in Daegu, South Korea, the new outlet is designed after the cultural hanok, a traditional Korean house with over a century of rich history. With its wooden frames and curved roofs, the Starbucks outlet is an absolute architectural marvel.

The unique coffeehouse perfectly encapsulates the district's deep culture of art and Korean classical music. With its charming interior, this Starbucks should definitely be a destination worth visiting for travellers planning to visit South Korea.

An abundance of natural lighting streams through its big windows, welcoming visitors into its serene ambience. Meanwhile, the elevated timber ceiling gives off a cosy vibe, making this space totally Instagram-worthy!

The eatery is also well-decorated with a selection of plants and beautiful art pieces along the wall, as well as intricate wooden carvings etched into its segments that elevate the hanok design

True to Daegu's rich musical culture, Starbucks Korea also collaborated with Bang & Olufsen to provide a state-of-the-art sound system for its patrons
