Rent a HanbokIn Korea, the traditional clothing worn by both men and women is called hanbok. Part of the culture for centuries, these comfortable outfits typically consist of a slim jacket worn over loose, high-waisted pants or bell skirts, all made from either embroidered silk or satin. Until recently, Koreans reserved hanboks for formal occasions. Now, however, it’s considered quite fashionable for locals to wear colorful hanboks when visiting historic areas of Seoul. Tourists are encouraged to participate and can find rental shops in Insadong and Bukchon Hanok Village. Rentals start as low as $10 and some businesses even offer packages that include photo shoots, with the added perk that anyone wearing a hanbok is granted free access to Seoul’s many temples.
