Day 6 – Seoul Free and Easy

Day 6 : Seoul Free and Easy

We were given the final day to tour on our own. How great! So, me and 3 other girls decided to have our own Seoul free and easy tour. We planned to go to N Seoul Tower, Bukchon Hanok Village & Gyeongbokgung Palace. After having our breakfast at Lotte Hotel, we kicked off our exploration, around 10am.

This guard very ‘give face’, looking at the camera :p




I didn’t go inside Gyeongbokgung palace. Just loitering and taking photos outside.

Cheong Wa Dae (The Blue House)

Next, we walked to Cheong Wa Dae (Bluehouse) which is just nearby. Cheong Wa Dae is the  executive office and official residence of the President of The Republic of Korea.

We only stopped by and took some photos outside. You’ll need to book in advance for a tour inside.

Star Avenue at Lotte World

Finally, we got back to Lotte Hotel and decided to make a quick stop at the Star Avenue. There’s a ‘gallery’ that you need to pay for the entrance, that we didn’t go in. So we were outside snapping the displays of the ‘Hallyu’ stars like Big Bang, Rain, Hyun Bin, Jang Geun Suk, 2pm, JYJ, Song Seung Heon, Choi Ji Woo & Kim Hyun Joong.
