Pike place market , Seattle

Pike place is a market with charm from the 80s. Every store around it is a gem, with very authentic and marketplace buzz.

I particularly love the Beecher’cheese store, the spice shop, the many fruits and vegetables store, the pasta store, oh my it’s heaven for foodie!

Walking to the market from waterfront
the original (third?) starbucks with super huge queue…

Beecher’s cheese curd in the making..

The best mac n cheese~~ yummz~~

Pasta store with amazing, even exotic flavour~

Spice heaven here in MarketSpic

 

Variety of tea to choose from!

I can’t do justice with the amount of things I’ve seen and those that I’ve not had the chance to try out, so I’ll definitely put that on my list for a redo. There are many restaurants and musicians around, enough to make you spend many hours here exploring!

#Traveltips : If you really want to go to Starbucks, be sure to be really early as the queue gets ridiculously crazy!

#Traveltips: Get some light bites instead of sitting in a restaurant. Tons to  try – ie some of those fresh seafood, mac & cheese, and so much more!

Chihuly Garden and Glass, Seattle

I was fortunate enough to visit Seattle for the second time in 2 years, and this time around, me and my girls bought a City pass and did our very best to maximized it.

Chihuly Garden and Glass by Dale Chihuly will always be one of my favorite gallery. I just love the art and emotion, the movement and interpretation on every  single piece that is so carefully(or lack of it) put through and I love it all !

Greeted with a playful display at the entrance~
Me for scale on this super impressive massive structure!

It’s so beautiful, inside and outside – I’m beyond words.

You can watch the demonstration of glass art making, and it was really entertaining and informative as well.

#Traveltips : Check out their website just in case you may be disappointed by some private events.

#Traveltips : It’s very beautiful in the dark too, so go a little late if you want!

Location :305 Harrison St, Seattle, WA 98109, USA
Pricing : Get the City pass!!
