Seoul’s charm lies in its ability to preserve its tradition in contemporary times. While the capital dazzles travelers with its advanced cityscape, there’s no denying that their historical attractions still maintain high popularity. Just consider your travel plans: you’re probably thinking of visiting at least one modern site like the N Seoul Tower, Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, or 63 Square, but I’m almost sure that you’re also considering Gyeongbokgung, Deoksugung, Namsangol Hanok Village, or Bukchon Hanok Village. If I’m right, then I’d highly recommend that you make the most out of your trip to any of Korea’s historic sites by renting a Korean dress or hanbok for a day! Not only will you get the experience of wearing colorful traditional Korean wear (which makes for great portraits, by the way!), you’ll also get automatic or free admission to sites like Gyeongbok Palace! Here are the top Hanbok rentals in Seoul that you can add to your itinerary:
