This is the first of 7 posts I have about our holiday in Seoul over Christmas.Stay tuned daily for the next posts.
Our family has been to Seoul before, (also over Christmas but it didn't snow at all then) 4 years ago when MJ was just a few months old. This time round we were able to do more and experience more since the kids are a little older. And this time round, Seoul was freakishly coldddddd (it went as low as minus 14 degrees celcius in the day time). So much snowwwww!
There are a couple of streets just across from the Palace (and palace museum) which rent out Hanboks. It's barely 5 mins walk away. Very convenient. You can get them for the whole day or for as short as 2 hours. We pre booked ours from Klook. But when we went down there, we saw that there are many shops renting Hanboks, you can just walk in and rent one.
We actually did it for the kids. Let them experience something cultural and have fun dressing up. But OMG, I super enjoyed it myself. I loved wearing the Hanbok, so princessy (and the inner skirt is those can can types, so you float around. Love it!).
They even style your hair for you.
It's damn cold ... so even though it's just a 5 min walk away, we had to bundle up in our jackets. Only took them off to take pics.
