Hello friends…this is my 3rd story when I went to South Korea about 4 months ago.

On Jan 2nd 2011 we went to Seoul again and again. Because many places in Seoul that are very comfortable and beautiful to visit. We went to Seoul from Suwon city by public bus and take 1 hour long arrived in Seoul.

Yes here are some places that we visited during the very cold day on Jan 2nd 2011….
1. Namsangol Hanok Village
This village is located near Seoul Namsan Tower in the center of Seoul city. It contains many traditional houses of Korea and also there is time capsule that was established by Seoul citizen and will be opened for next 500 years. Fortunatelly, when we are there, there is drama shooting that is called New Tales of Gisaeng and now airing on SBS, one of the biggest TV station in Korea. And also we went to the hanok house that was used for SBS Running Man variety show episode 19 when Nickhun 2PM was the guest (picture below)

2. Insadong Traditional Market
After we were tired in Namsangol Hanok Village, we went to Insadong market in downtown Seoul city. We must walk to go there and need 30 minutes to arrive there. Insadong market is the most popular traditional market in Seoul, there are many goods sold there from the cheapest to the most expensive ones. Many foreigners can be found there and we also met with Indonesian and Malaysian people there.
