Temples, Markets & Roller Coasters
We walked the kids to death today but we saw all a ton of what Seoul has to offer. Starting with the Buddhist temple of Bukhansan where we all rubbed Buddha’s belly for luck.
Then over to Bukchon Village, an area famous for its traditional Korean homes called hanoks. The ornate roof lines and detailed woodwork was beautiful and a far contrast to the skyscrapers in the distance.
Next stop, Namdaemun Market
Followed by Children's Grand Park. A huge park with an amphitheater, playground, zoo and amusement park. The zoo by the way had an interesting exotic animal on display…….the guinea pig. The kids took on their first big roller coaster, a corkscrew loop.
