It was another fun filled day in the world-class city of Seoul. In the morning we took the subway to Gyeongbokgung and visited the Gyeongbok Palace (cost 3,000 won) and the National Palace Museum of Korea (free). Pretty impressive! Then we had lunch close by at the popular Tosokshon and had an amazing steaming bowl of chicken ginseng soup (samgyetang). After feeling stuffed, we walked over to Samcheong-dong to walk the streets full of trendy art galleries and cafes. The historic Bukchon Hanok Village is also located in the area. Then we stopped at a very small cafe and I had one of the a very tasty cafe mocha. Since we still had some time in the late afternoon, we decided to end our sightseeing at the National Museum of Korea (free). The building was massive and it is supposedly one of the largest museum in Asia. Not being very hungry after having a big lunch, we stopped by a place in Itaewon called the Noodle Box and had some Vietnamese noodles, which was excellent – we haven’t had a bad meal yet!
