1 May 2017

Still excited about yesterday a new day has broken so the plan for the day developed slowly after waking up. Looking in my travel bible the Lonely Planet I saw that one of the things I still had on the list was to go to Bukchon Hanok Village. This is a concentration of Hanok  (traditional Korean homes) So I walked the streets there according to a walking tour described by the Lonely Planet. After the walking tour I visited the Gyeongbokgung ( The palace of Shining Happiness) In there are a lot of people visiting. Also a lot of people dressed up for the occasion. You can hire these costumes in a shop close to the palace. Many of them ask me to take a photo for them with their cellphone. And when they do so it brings opportunity for me, so I can make a photo of them with my camera.

Around 15.00 I returned to my guesthouse. Just to unload my photos and have a little rest. So I would be ready for the next part of the day. I am going to the Lotte Tower. The 5th highest building in the world at this time. The Lotte Tower is 554 meters high and has the worlds highest observation deck. It is 27000 won to get up there but Iam not every day in Seoul . 27000 won is almost 22 Euro very expansive I would say. But in the end it was worth it. Look for the phtos on the next page.
