Historic Seoul, South Korea

As we got closer to Gyeongbokgung, former royal palace located in downtown Seoul, we began to see many people dressed in traditional Korean clothing. It was nice to see the old mixing effortlessly with the new.

In old Bukchon Hanok village, there are hundreds of traditional Korean homes, art galleries, and establishments–like this cafe.

After some absolutely delicious Korean barbecue, we visited Myeongdong market. Even at 11pm, there was still a hustle-bustle in the heart of Seoul.

  1. Is that a real guard cause he is so tall. Interesting traditional clothing they wear. Love the architect of the Palace. It’s autumn there like here. Is that Picachu? Don’t believe it a Catholic Church or am I seeing things. Enjoy love ya both God bless
