Million Reasons to Love Shoreditch, London

I went to Shoreditch probably like 10 times, compared to London Eye, which was "zero" Told you, I have never wanted to go where all the tourists go, though I spent my money on the budget just to fly to the UK. What can I say, I am a fashion blogger with an individual mind. Whenever I travel, I have always wanted to go where all the local people go. I wanna eat, and hang around where all those hips and cool boys & girls go. This is it, "SHOREDITCH" My most favourite spot in London. I just don't know why, but it has cast a 'love' spell on me deeply. London is a tourist city, but this hidden (maybe not that hidden) gem is the place I could feel the feelin' of true British hipsters/youngsters.

ถ้าจะพูดถึงลอนดอนละก็ Shoreditch อาจจะเป็นที่ๆแก้วไปบ่อยมาก (คือจริงๆไปบ่อยกว่าลอนดอนอายอีก...คือไม่เคยไปเลย 55) แก้วจะเป็นคนไม่ชอบไปที่ๆทัวร์ลงเพราะชอบไปอินกับพวกคน local มากกว่าไม่ว่าจะกินหรือเที่ยวก็อยากให้ได้ฟีลแบบคนท้องถิ่น บอกได้เลยว่าที่นี่แหละที่สะกดจิตให้แก้วไปเรื่อยๆเพราะฟีลลิ่งความเป็นวัยรุ่นอังกฤษมันสูงมาก


If you are into this kind of thing, Shoreditch maybe the place you can find lots of cool street art. Graffiti on the wall, painting on the brick wall, or even these stuff on the building. I just can't guys. It has a charm within itself, and there's no need of a lime light like any other places. I actually feel like Manchester is somehow reminds me of Shoreditch, especially at the Norther Quarter, where the coolest graffiti is located. Well, I love the hipster area, so...


There are a lot of retro and vintage shops at Shoreditch. You may think that the clothes are cheap, right? Think again, because they are not. The second-handed clothes sometimes can be more expensive than ASOS or Missguided actually. However, I got a few pairs of sunglasses, which was 10GBP each, so 30 quid in total. 


I live in Bangkok, Thailand (as Thai fashion blogger for now), so I familiar with the street food very well. When I was at Shoreditch, I  had a chance to try freshly made Takoyaki (because why not?!). Maybe it wasn't as great as what I had in Tokyo, but it was alright. In fact, it's better than having nothing to eat anyway. I love Asian food, so anything was good for me that time.

ถ้าใครชอบพวกสตรีทอาร์ทแบบกราฟฟิตีต้องที่Shoreditch เลยค่ะเพราะมันเป็นที่ๆจะหาสิ่งเหล่านี้ได้เยอะที่สุดนะแก้วว่า คือไม่ว่าจะเป็นงานพ่น งานเพนท์ มีหมดเลย บอกตรงๆว่าที่นี่แบบมันมีเสน่ห์มากนะแล้วมันก็เป็นอีกมุมหนึ่งที่แก้วรู้สึกว่าได้กลิ่นอายสไตล์ชาวบริทจริงๆ ถ้าใครเคยไปแมนเชสเตอร์ก็อาจจะรู้สึกว่า Northern Quarter ก็จะคล้ายๆ Shoreditch ไม่ใช่น้อยแต่อาจจะไม่ได้เหมือนกันทั้งหมด

ร้านเสื้อผ้าสไตล์วินเทจและเรโทรเยอะมากที่นี่แต่ว่าไม่ถูกนะคะบางร้านขายเสื้อผ้ามือสองก็จริงแต่ราคานี่แพงกว่าช้อปออนไลน์เยอะ ตอนนั้นที่แก้วไปก็ไปเดินเลือกแว่นตาอันละ 10 ปอนด์ ซื้อมาสามอันก็ 30 ปอนด์พอดี ต้องเดินไปเรื่อยๆละเลือกร้าน

ตอนนี้แก้วอยู่เมืองไทยในฐานะแฟชั่นบล็อกเกอร์ไทยคนหนึ่งของ The Equinox Fashion ดังนั้นอาหารข้างถนนนี่เป็นของชำนาญค่ะ ตอนนั้นที่แก้วไปShoreditch ก็เหลือบไปเห็นทาโกะยากิข้างทางก็เลยรีบปรี่เข้าไปเพราะว่าดูน่ากินมาก ถึงแม้มันจะไม่ได้อร่อยเหมือนที่ญี่ปุ่นแต่ก็ถือว่าโอเคนะเพราะอย่างน้อยก็มีอะไรกิน


  1. thanks for your recommendations! I'm agree that it's better visit the non-turistic places, the turistic places just want to make money and are more expensive because they know that people will go there and won't mind to expend money, that's why avoid them!

  2. I've wanted to visit shoreditch, but you've made me want to go even more now! When the hell were you in London?! I'd love to have met up!

  3. I'm just like you when it comes to traveling: I don't care where the touristy places are, I want to be where the locals hang out. I went to Paris recently and people seem to be having a bad time understanding why I didn't go to the Eiffel Tower, but I just had other priorities ;) Great post!

  4. Yumm the takoyaki looks so delicious! You got me super hungry looking at it! Shoreditch reminds me of universal studios especially with the large display on the top of the building, kind of like the transformers at the theme park haha. I would love to go there someday when I'm in London. Thanks for suggesting this! xo~ Lena
