Today we travel back again to Korea, specifically, to Seoul:-)

Visiting the 5 Grand Palaces of Joseon Dinasty (Changgyeonggung, Changdeokgung, Deoksugung, Unhyeongung, Gyeonbokgung) in South  Korea´s capital is a must-have for every traveler. But for me, those visits that you don´t have planned in your tourist programm are the best. That´s how we got to Insadong thanks to our insider friend  Jiyeon and her sister.

I loved the atmosphere at Insadong: artisan shops, hanoks (traditional korean houses), charming uphill streets… for foodies: you can´t leave this district without tasting one of these green tea specialities at O´sulloc Tea House

When it comes to eat, korean food specialities are quite interesting. Food markets such as Dongdaemun or Namdaemun Market are the biggest in South Korea. We went for Namdaemun.
