Winter season is one of the most beautiful and wonderful time of the year to visit and explore South Korea. The temperature is definitely too freezing but you can still enjoy activities like wearing a Hanbok! (Traditional Korean Attire). You can actually wear Hanbok any time of the year, but for me, Winter is the best season to do it. Where every corner of every destination is very charming and picturesque. Perfect for a photo session and very instagrammable too!
Here are some of our photos (with my sister) when we travel to Jeonju, Hanok Village.
In Jeonju Hanok Village, there are a lot of Hanbok Shops where you can rent one and wear it for a limited time only. We have rented our hanbok for 25,000 Korean Won for 1 One and a half 1/2 hour use. The price of it will depend on the design and materials use for the hanbok. You can also rent accessories like hats, crowns, swords, pieces of jewelry and more! These accessories will complete your perfect Hanbok Wearing Experience.
Reminder: Do not forget to bring your PASSPORT with you because every Hanbok Shops required (1) One Valid ID for each guest and for tourists, our only valid ID is the PASSPORT. On our case, it is our first time to rent a Hanbok and we forget our passports at the guest house, so we just negotiate with the officer in charge, instead of surrendering an ID, my sister and I surrendered our Phones! But, we still have extra phones for the picture taking, so no worries about that! 🙂
Recommended Korea Tour Packages
There are a lot of places to visit in Hanok Village where you can do your instagrammable shots! Do your best pose and it is your time to recreate your favorite scenes on K-dramas as well! You can even eat at different cafes and restaurants while wearing one.
For me, wearing this traditional Korean attire is not just a simple tourist activity but it is also a way for us (tourists) to feel and know their rich history and culture. So, while wearing one, respect and be careful to it, because just like every tradition it also deserves admiration and appreciation.
