Day 5 - Snowing in Seoul


Seoul, the 5th day snowed a lot!
 

First place we went after breakie was Bukchon Hanok Village.
Bukchon Hanok Village is a Korean traditional residential area in Seoul.
It located between Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeok Palace and Jongmyo Royal Shrine.


It also known as "the street musuem in the urban core", for it's many historical spots and cultural heritage site.


Bukchon is a nice place for photo shooting because of the traditional houses.
They are very unique compare to the modern houses you see everywhere in the city.


The whole place just look so pretty especially with the snow!


After visited the small village, we went to Cheongwadae Sarangchae.


There was a short walking distance from where the bus stopped us to our destination.
How cold is the weather? My face expression has definately answered your question! :p


Cheongwadae Sarangchae is a history centre that offer a chance to follow the footsteps of Korea.


If you want to know about the history of Korea, this is a place where you can't miss out!


Korean drama is one of the biggest impacts on Korea tourism development!
I rememeber Winter Sonata is the drama which brought me to be aware of this beautiful country.


Everywhere's covered in snowwww~~


Can you see the snow?!


And finally we were here, Gyeongbokgung Palace


Gyeongbokgung Palace, is the most comprehensive and grandest palace built in 1395,
It is the main palace of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910)  by its founder King Taejo.


Not sure if we were too lucky or unlucky.
The weather forecast actually said there won't be any snow during that week!
How unpredictable to have such non-stop snowing on that day!


It was snowing at every corner, really heavily!


Here's my selca picture with the snow! So white!


Do you still remember the famous K drama 大長今?
Here is the shooting place inside the drama.
Too bad this area was still under construction during my visit, they are going to renovate the exact same like before.
Now I think I have an excuse to go to Korea again! Hehe~~~


Such a nice view, even though it was bloody cold!


Mum's beanie looks good on me!


The whole big Gyeongbokgung Palace is just about walking!


Some people might say we were so unlucky to have snow especially you gonna walk the whole day outside, but I would say we are so so so lucky because we love to see snow! Haha!


Stepping on snow which you will never have the chance to do it in Malaysia!


This is the 青瓦台.
Too bad that we cannot see the green roof because it has all covered by the snow!
Should be another excuse for me to come back again!


Can't stop taking pictures with the snow!


Before ended the tour in Gyeongbokgung Palace, MORE snow is coming!


No doubt, Korea has a beautiful winter especially with snow!


It's so good to have shabu-shabu during the heavy snow day!
It warms our body and cheer us up too!


We also had everyone's favourite Bibinbop!


When the others were busy shopping at Dongdaemun Market after our dinner, I have a special date with my friends in Seoul~~~MaSeong and Kon.
It was our first met after knowing each other 3 years through FB!


I know MaSeong through Kay.
He is a traditional chinese doctor in Seoul.
When I need help to translate a Korean song, he is the one who cannot run away! :D


And I know Kon through his brother Maseong.
Kon is a violinist in Seoul.
He is not only a violinist, but also compose his own music on his own.
Check out his FB link @ Violinist Kon 



It was so amazing to meet them in real!
It's a shame that we only have 2 hours, because I was too tired and I had terrible headache after the snow showering during day time.
Hope we soon will have chance to meet up again!
Thanks for coming to see me in Seoul!!!


Okay...time to end my today's post with my favourite picture with the snow!
How I wish we also have snow in Malaysia! Not winter maybe, but at least fall or spring? Some cold weather please!



P/S Many of my pictures on 5th day were very blur! I am not sure if that caused by the cold weather or I am still a new user with my new camera.
It's really sad to see most of the nice pictures turn into vague!
Well, now I think I have a super good excuse for me to go Korea again....
Agree not? Hehe!



Have a good weekend ya!!!
