Hello, my name is Chan Ju Lee! I love to travel around&around in Korea and already have been to many tourist spots like Busan, Suncheon, Gangneung, Chuncheon… So I can give my own travel tips to you! Also, I like to meet many kinds of people and have talks with them. I want to show my energy entirely for my travelers!!! For these reasons, I applied to “tourmate”. If I could be your tourmate, I want to have so meaningful time with you:)
Culture / History
First, Gyeongbok Palace
Do you want to know deeper about Korea?
If you are curious about Korea, raise your head to see Gyeongbok Palace!
Gyeongbok Palace was built in the Joseon Dynasty for the first time. “Gyeongbok” means “have a great fortune”. Geunjeongjeon -the center of the Gyeongbok palace- and Gyeonghoeru -a site of reception and banquet- where we will tour in the palace are famous for a beautiful style of architecture. While walking around there, we can see the traditional beauty and feel Korean ancestors’ wisdom. Also by wearing Hanbok, Korea’s traditional clothes, we will have a special experience like ‘going to the past’.
Second, National Folk Museum & Bukchon Hanok Village
After we take a look at the Palace, lunch will take place at a Korean Restaurant, located on the east of the National Folk Museum. You will experience the food culture of Korea by eating traditional foods.
After lunch, we will walk across the Bukchon Hanok Village, taking pictures with the Hanok, traditional Korean-style house, and beautiful streets in full bloom. You can also go window-shopping in stores around. And finally, the tour will end after returning Hanbok to the clothing store.
I would like to let you guys know more about Korean history and traditional culture by touring these places with Hanbok. I will guide you kindly and hard in order that you may have a meaningful tour.
