Seoul Day 4

29 October 2007 @ Gyeongbokgung [경복궁]

Here we are, the last day to visit Seoul. First stop, Gyeongbok palace. It was the main and largest palace of the Joseon Dynasty and one of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty.

When we got there, there was a guard changing ceremony. Then, we waited for a Mandarin-speaking Korean tour guide to lead us through the palace.

This is where the king sits

The building behind me appears in the 10,000won note

Can you figure out the four chinese words there?

How about this one? [there're 4 chinese words there too]

29 October 2007 @ Myung-Dong

This is another shopping district with shops and stalls all around. We walked and shopped and had our lunch at VIPS. We took the Salad Bar Buffet which costs us around 20,000won.

Unlimited salmon~!

Wanted to try the 37cm tall ice cream, too bad it's not open

After that, we were separated into two groups. DeYan and ChauLun wanted to go to the Technomart while ShinKeat, ChinNam and me went to Insa-dong for our dinner at a restaurant which is famous for its deok [rice cakes]. We ordered some different flavoured rice cakes and a plate of fried rice cake [deokboggi].

Then we three head back to Hyehwa and walked around that area. Then we went to shop to eat a Pajeon [파전]. The shop sells a lot of different flavours of Pajeon [seafood, kimchi, vege, etc] I quite like the taste of it.

After eating, we got back to our room, bathe and pack our stuffs as we have to leave early in the morning. Billy, out.
