Bukchon Hanok Village
Day 2 started with a trip to Bukchon Hanok Village. It was a bit challenging to find because there were no markers around and it really did just look like a normal village. My sister and I had fun going into these little shops selling touristy trinkets. 🙂
Korean War Memorial
It will not be a legit family trip without going to any war-related place. Hahaha. My sister and I spent most of the morning hanging out at the outdoor exhibitions of the museum, taking pictures with airplanes, tanks, and ships. I wish we had more time to explore the inside though. It was a really, really huge place! And again I was reminded of my geeky self — the one who totally enjoyed hearing about the Korean War during our DMZ tour last year. 🙂
N Seoul Tower
For lunch my sister and I went to Hancook, in N Seoul Tower. Allan and I had eaten here before, and I wanted to bring my sister here because it was super sulit. 🙂 Unfortunately, we weren’t able to check out much of N Seoul Tower because we had to rush to catch the Nanta Cooking Show. As usual, the lines were long going to the Cable Car, and also going down the elevator, so that took up so much time.
Nanta Cooking Show
We rushed down from the N Seoul Tower to get to Myeongdong, to catch the Nanta Cooking Show. The show felt like a tagalog sitcom actually, because of the slapstick humor. But the actors were really great! I can just imagine how tiring the whole show is for them.
Because we were already in Myeongdong, well, you guessed right. We did some more shopping before we finally called it a night. 🙂
