Rent a Hanbok
“Hanbok” is the name of traditional Korean clothing worn by both men and women. These comfortable outfits often consist of a slim jacket worn over loose, high-waisted pants or bell skirts. They have been part of the culture for centuries and are usually made of embroidered silk and satin. In recent decades, hanboks were reserved as formal wear, but now it’s quite fashionable for locals to rent colorful hanboks while touring historic areas of Seoul. Tourists are encouraged to participate and can head to Insadong or Bukchon village to find a rental shop. Rentals start as low as $10 and some businesses offer packages that include photo shoots. Another plus: anyone donning a hanbok is granted free access to any of the palaces.
