Today’s schedule was quite packed. As usual, morning breakfast. But this time wasn’t from the hotel. Its away from the hotel. Korean buffet style breakfast.
After the not so nice breakfast, we went to Gyeongbokgung Palace and National Folk Museum . Both are located in the same area. Before entering the palace and museum, we passed the Blue House ; the presidential residence of Korea.
National Folk Museum- learn about the lifestyle of the people from prehistoric to present times.
Gyeongbokgung Palace – built in 1394, the main palace by the first king of Yi Dynasty.
From there; we went for our lunch. This round was bebimbap. Rice with some side dishes and an egg on top of it. Served with a hotpot and other side dishes.
Next destination; Ice Gallery. We were given a square ice block and were taught to carve an ice glass. You gotto carve it based on your creativity. The top 3 best cup/glass will be chosen as winner. Got medal wan you know…don’t play play…Unfortunately I did not win it 😦 *sigh* may be because my creativity started to rust already. well…just had fun out it. After the ice craving, we proceed to the ice gallery. Here you can see they carved the huge ice blocks into beautiful sculpture. Ohh yea, they do provide us with winter jacket before entering the gallery.
After the ice gallery, we headed over to Ginseng Outlet & then to Amethyst Outlet.
Last stop for the day was to Myeongdong. I can say this place is really a shopping heaven!! You can get a lot of stuff over here. From food to clothes, shoes, accessories, skincare/cosmetics (A LOT!!) and bags. *not enough time for me to shop again* 😦
After the hasil lumayan we went for our dinner. Can’t remember what steamboat that was. Lets see from the photo below.
These are all the drink I’ve bought on day 4.
