Su-san Park cafe

From Sesame Street-themed cafes to stairway to heaven cafes, Korea is on their A-game when it comes to unique cafe concepts.

Su-san Park Cafe is just the latest addition to the list – this ocean-themed cafe and bakery has gone out their way to make you feel like you’re at the beach.

At the rooftop, you’ll find the stairway to heaven photo zone, which gives you an unobstructed view of the blue sky. It’s a pretty popular photo zone, so you may have to wait around to get a good shot.
