The day on our flight home, we still have the whole day to roam around the city. Since palaces are mostly open around 9am, we decided to walk around for the old preserved villages. The village is quiet at 6:30 am and most of the houses and museums are still locked. Nevertheless, there’s something satisfying with walking on the a new place, just breathing in the unfamiliar surrounding minus the familiar chaos tourists bring.
HOW TO GET THERE:
Go to Dongdaemun History & culture park station Line 4. Transfer in Chungmuro Station to Line 3 then go to Anguk Station, Exit 3. Train fare is KRW 1050.
If you want something traditional Korean thing, I recommend you to go here for they have a craft center. Beside from the Namsam Park, there’s a hanbok experience here as well.
