Dress like Korean Royalty

 

Have you ever wanted to feel like a Korean King or Queen from the Chosan Dynasty? 

Great news!  You can, outside of the Gyeongbokgung Palace.  Located in the Gwanghwamun area (or central mall) you will find a small display near the Sejeon statue.  (When facing the statue look to your right and you will see a small blue  building with an  “I am a king” sign on the front of it.)

           

Head over and you can try on Royal Clothing free of charge!  Sign in at the desk and then an employee will help you place clothing over your clothes.  Once you are wearing the Royal costume you are free to take photos in the area.  This is a great introduction or conclusion of a tour of the Gyengbokgung Palace.

This event will be open until October 31st,  2013.  It is open until 6:00 pm every day the palace is open.

 

Transportation:  Gyeongbokgung Palace Station (Line 3)  Exit 5

                             Gwanghwamun Station (Line 5)  Exit 2

Since that time my travels have lead me to visit over 60 countries, marry a fellow globetrotter, move intercontinentally seven times and to create temporary homes in four continents! Through my travels, I’ve held many suitcases packed for adventures as a journalist, blogger, philanthropist, teacher, army-wife, magazine director, photographer, barmaid, but mainly just an adventurer. With each new experience, elsewhere, I endeavor to live sensibly while exploring a new culture, living sustainably, and giving back whenever possible. I aspire to make this travel blog help those starting a new life elsewhere or just passing through…
