March 19, 2016 // On my second day in Seoul, my first agenda was to visit the Bukchon Hanok Village. This village is known for its traditional houses. Many locals and tourists come here to rent hanbok (Korean's traditional clothes) and for sightseeing. Initially I only allotted 2-3 hours to see the village but there are so many independent shops inside and I didn't want to regret not taking a peek at least. T^T
Thought it was cute that these kids were on a field trip!
Calling on my fellow Kpop fanatics! :))
Details! Details! Details! <3
The next time I visit Seoul, I will make sure to stay in one of these hanok houses! I think that experiencing the way old generations used to live can allow you to know more about the locals and their culture... don't you think so?
One of the store that caught my eye is this Philippines Tropical Dessert Cafe. I thought it was such a random thing to have in the middle of a traditional village. They were selling a lot of Filipino snacks!
This one tasted more like the Mango Slush from Bubble Queen!
Surprised to see a catholic church inside the village. I really wanted to go inside but I didn't have enough time. :(
^ I reached the top! Due to the bad air pollution on that day, the Seoul Tower was barely visible.
I reached zone A and C around 3pm and there were a lot of people already. I didn't get a chance to take a lot of photos because the streets were packed!
