Day 19 Seoul, South Korea Part 3

In this part of the tour, we visited the famous Insa-dong Street market, primarily for a few souvenirs and some photo opportunities….  Next we stopped for a fabulous Korean lunch on Insa-dong street before heading out to our next stop.  The next location was a biggie!  We went to Gyeongbokgung Palace for the changing of the guard and a tour of the Palace.  What a magnificent place!  I just loved it….  The changing of the guard was fantastic, full of tradition….  It was very colorful.  We spent a lot of time at the Palace and even took a little side hike over to the Blue House, South Korea’s version of the USA White House.  Then we took a quick visit to the Bukchon Hancok Village which was pretty crowded but very interesting. It was a fabulous part of the day!


  1. I am new to your blog and am so glad I found it. Beautiful pictures fascinating stops. We are Princess cruisers (rather new to cruising) and an Asia cruise is high on our list. You are so fortunate to be able to experience the level of trips that you do!
    Hope you are safe and not experiencing any of the typhoon weather.

  2. Jeff, I just caught up with the last few days of your blog. . With everything you squeezed into your days, I am surprised that you had any time to post. As usual, your pictures are a real travelogue. People, scenery, markets, and points of interest. Can't wait for the next port....feel as though I am on the Amsterdam with you. Beachlady
