[Seoul 2016] My first OneDay Hanbok Experience at Deoksugung PalaceFriday, February 24, 2017
One of my to-do list for visiting Korea for the second time is to try on the traditional costume - hanbok. Coincidentally, OneDay Hanbok contacted me 1 month before my trip and I happily accepted their kind hospitality. The weather was quite windy during day time and hence we were quite afraid will get cold because the hanbok wasn't really thick.
This is one of the best picture taken with the beautiful hanbok at Deoksugung Palace. It looks like I've back to the old times.
DID YOU KNOW?
You are entitled for free entry to any palace by wearing a hanbok?
These are our free entry tickets.
On our first visit to Seoul, we've visited the famous Gyeongbokgung Palace. So, this time, we decided to visit another famous palace - Deoksugung Palace. One of the good thing about this palace is, it hardly flooded with too many tourist hence we (I) can take few more decent photo. *ngek*
We arrived at the right timing, the guard changing ceremony is just about to start when we get down from the cab. and yeah! I got a good spot to take all these photos and enjoyed the ceremony.
Daehanmun Gate - the main entrance of Deoksugung Palace.
Let's have a glance at the palace.
The interior in every palace, it seems more or less the same.
HIS & HER first hanbok experience.
I like the hanbok that I've chosen.
A Japanese aunty was so cute, she and her friend bumped into us and keep saying we looks so pretty and handsome in hanbok. Right after that, she offered to take few couple shot of us. This is one of the funny post directed by her, I have no idea why we are listening to her suggestions that time. LOL
Do take more photos when you're wearing hanbok, definitely a great experience.
I found this scene is funny.
About OneDay Hanbok
Where and how to rent hanbok? OneDay Hanbok is the answer.
I reached around 9.30am and I was surprised the shop was fulled with customers. Everyone was busy choosing their hanbok and accessories. If I didn't remember wrongly, you may try up to 2 or 3 pieces of hanbok before making decision.
It is quite hard to choose as there are so many choices. You can see the amount of hanbok available on the shelf.
Bags at your choice.
