Seoul, the capital of South Korea, is a huge metropolis where modern skyscrapers, high-tech subways and pop culture meet Buddhist temples, palaces and street markets. Notable attractions include futuristic Dongdaemun Design Plaza, a convention hall with curving architecture and a rooftop park; Gyeongbokgung Palace, which once had more than 7,000 rooms; and Jogyesa Temple, site of ancient locust and pine trees.

Hanbok: Korea's colorful and traditional outfit.
It cost me 20000 KRW because I chose the “princess”special hanbok and I get to wear it for 4 hours. If you choose a general hanbok, it is 15000 KRW for 4 hours. If you need more than 4 hours, you’ll need to pay additional 5000 KRW per hour. If you want to rent it for the whole day, it will cost 30000 KRW.
It was also nice that they gave free hair braiding service with free hair accessories, shoes and bag for the ladies. They also provide free bag for the males.Make up is not included so that your face doesn’t look to plain in the photos 🙂

Seoul Street Food Found at Myeongdong
Apart from indulging in restaurant food, what is a Seoul Food trip without immersing yourself in their street food culture. There are many places that sell street food but my favourite one is at Myeongdong district.
Gyeongbokgung (Hangul: 경복궁; Hanja: 景福宮), also known as Gyeongbokgung Palace or Gyeongbok Palace, was the main royal palace of the Joseon dynasty. Built in 1395, it is located in northern Seoul, South Korea. The largest of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon dynasty, Gyeongbokgung served as the home of Kings of the Joseon dynasty, the Kings' households, as well as the government of Joseon.
Legend of the blue sea
This is one part of Heo Joon-Jae’s (Lee Min-Ho) house in Seoul in SBS The Legend of the Blue Sea (푸른 바다의 전설) (2016). While he was away in Spain, his partners in crime, Jo Nam-Doo (Lee Hee-Joon) and Tae-Oh (Shin Won-Ho) moved in and in episode 4 Se-Hwa (Gianna Jun) joins them.
This is actually only one part of the Joon-Jae’s house. The exterior and scenes around the entrance door of Joon-Jae’s house were filmed here.

🇰🇷The N Seoul Tower (Hangul: N서울타워),🇰🇷🇰🇷
officially the YTN Seoul Tower and commonly known as the Namsan Tower or Seoul Tower, is a communication and observation tower located on Namsan Mountain in central Seoul, South Korea. At 236m, it marks the second highest point in Seoul.
Love lock, love lock and more love locks. Countless number of love locks can be found hanging around the roof terrace, with new locks adding daily. It is an overwhelming sight, and tempting enough for anyone in love to love-lock. This is a distinct feature of N Seoul Tower, and one thing that every couple never fails to do, as a symbolic testament of each other’s love.
