Gyeongbokgung Palace and Bukcheon Hanbok Village

One of my best friend was with me during this trip and she wanted to wear a Hanbok and go around Gyeongbokgung Palace. I wanted to fulfil one of her dreams and her bucketlist so we decided to go to Gyeongbokgung Palace and Bukchon Hanbok Village.

ATTENTION: Gyeongbokgung Palace is closed on Tuesdays.

Okay so first thing that we did was to rent a hanbok so we went to Bukcheon Hanbok Village.

walk straight as you go out of exit 2

We decided to rent our hanbok at 3355 Hanbok Rental. We didn’t want to be too far from the station when we have to return the hanboks.

we chose 3 hours since I have a feeling 2 hours will be too short for us (I was right!)

Walking around Gyeongbokgung Palace and Bukcheon Hanbok Village:

The palace is not that hard to find and the village. Their structures are huge, you just have to follow the roads

Don’t panic when you see this, just enter and walk in. Gyeongbokgung Palace is inside! Free entry to everyone wearing a hanbok!
