My jam-packed fifth day in South Korea continued in the capital of Seoul, where my boy Sam and I visited the beautiful Gyeongbokgung Palace while wearing traditional hanboks and enjoyed another sensational Korean meal! Come along with us as we continue to explore Seoul!

We started at a shop where we could rent some traditional clothing for our palace visit! I was presented with a blue and gold outerwear option with a dragon on the chest. In China, dragons signify the emperor. Then I needed an inner layer and bottoms. I got a white shirt with some pink pants that matched the belt with the outer layer.

Then we went down to the changing rooms to get into our traditional outfits! I looked like a royal. If you wear it when you go to the palace, you get in for free. And you get to look like a 17th-century Korean noble! It was really comfortable! We finished off the look with some hats!

It was really hot outside. On our way to the palace, we saw lots of people wearing hanboks. We arrived at the National Folk Museum of Korea, which is an entrance to the palace. There were lots of buildings including a Buddhist temple. On our way, we heard drumming, so we headed over to check out a really cool drum performance!

The performance was amazing! Everyone seemed to like seeing us in our hanboks!

We arrived at the palace, which was built in 1395 during the Joseon Dynasty. There are over 500 buildings in the palace complex. You can visit 13 of them, but we were only planning on visiting 2 or 3 because of the heat. I recommend coming here when they open at 9am to beat the heat!

Once we passed through the gate, it was like I’d stepped into 17th century Korea! The palace was beautiful. The houses were built on stilts and they were very colorful. While we explored, we met some very friendly ladies from Malaysia and New Zealand, who were all dressed in beautiful traditional clothes, too.

Next, we entered the pavilion. There was one main structure, lots of housing, and some amazing walls with stone, bricks, and detailed blue tiles. The pavilion was the most beautiful building in the complex. There was a pond where people took lots of pictures.

Then, we visited the diligent governance, a hall where Joseon rulers handled state affairs. It’s the most impressive building in the palace and huge! The stone terrace was amazing! Then we exited through the main entrance. The complex reminded me of the Forbidden City!

Next, we headed to a restaurant down a small alley that specializes in different types of stews. It looked really local and the foods looked delicious!

I ordered a Korean dumpling soup, radishes, kimchi, and spring onions while Sam ordered Galbitang, a beef short rib soup. We also had a nice, Korean beer, which was cold and refreshing!

My dug into the dumpling, which was filled with pork and herbs and was unreal! The noodles were thin and long and had a miso soup-like taste. The spring onions were super fresh and spicy, and the kimchi was nice and pungent! I loved it! Then I went with the radish, which was bland but had some nice spice. The soup broth was really healthy-tasting!

Sam’s dish contained beef and beef bones, glass noodles, chives, mushrooms, and more. It looked amazing!

What a meal and what a day!

I hope you enjoyed coming with us to Gyeongbokgung Palace and our Korean stew adventure! If you did, please give this video a thumbs up, leave me a comment, and subscribe so you don’t miss any of my upcoming travel/food videos!
