Winter Romance (DAY-4, 16th Jan)

Gyeongbokgung Palace

Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace is also commonly referred to as the “Northern Palace” because it is located more toward the north, compared to the neighboring palaces of Changdeokgung (Eastern Palace) and Gyeongheegung (Western Palace). Gyeongbokgung Palace is arguably the most beautiful and remains the grandest of all the five palaces.

Operating Hours
• March ~ October 09:00-18:00 (admission 17:00)
• November ~ February 09:00-17:00 (admission 16:00)

Admission Fees for adults is 3000 WON and child above 6 is 1500 WON

• Ticket passes for Gyeongbok Palace can also be used at the National Palace Museum and the National Folk Museum.

The Blue House (Cheong Wa Dae)

Cheong wa dae or Blue House in Seoul, home of the Korean President. The signature markings of the Presidential Residence of Cheong Wa Dae are its blue tiles. It is the first thing that catched one’s attention upon entering the premises. The blue tiles and the smooth roof blend beautifully with Mt. Bugaksan in the backdrop.

A walk around the paths just outside the the Blue House grounds is a pleasure as the surroundings are peaceful and beautiful.

Doota Shopping Mall

Doota (Doosan Tower) is one of Dongdaemun’s most well-known fashion malls, welcoming over 100,000 visitors a day, and is extremely popular amongst youth in their teens and 20’s.

The fashion mall offers a wide selection of products including women’s wear, children’s wear, men’s wear, fashion accessories, shoes, and miscellaneous goods.

Adds Information Doota official website

After dinner we checked in the Resort some where near Mt Sorak, can’t remember the name… The room were clean but quite old compared to Phoenix Island Resort, the Resort we have stayed in Jeju island…
