Free Hanbok Experience

Sunday, February 15, 2015

My sister and I thought that our trip to Korea would totally be incomplete without us trying out their traditional hanbok, but being the budget barbie us we also don't want to spend so much on that. So when I found out about a place with offers the hanbok experience for a grand fee of nothing at all...

..of cos we just HAVE TO get there!

Getting to Seoul Global Culture and Tourism Center

Keep on walking till you see Forever 21 on your right. M Plaza is right next to it.

& there you have it!

You need to book a timing and this can only be done by walk-in. Bookings through the phone is not allowed plus you can only book a slot for that day. Since it's free, here's the catch: You only get to put on the hanbok for 15 minutes. But if you feel like you need more time you can book two consecutive slots, like what we did :p

We had like an hour before our slot so we walked around the streets of Myeongdong..

As you can see at the back, the hanbok(s) are separated into the men and women section...
