SoKor 2015: Korean Folk Village in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do (Pt 2)

Welcome to the 2nd installment of my series of posts on my visit to the Korean Folk Village in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do. Yes, it’s a series, because there’s just so many things to see and do in this living museum to fit in a single post. In the first post, we officially entered the Village, and walked around key places, such as the Farmers’ Houses and the Nobleman’s Mansion. This time, we’ll explore more of this vast Village.

SoKor 2015: Korean Folk Village in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do (Pt 1)

Be transported to the Joseon dynasty, and get more than a glimpse of how the people back then used to live.

SoKor 2015: Gyeongbukgong (Pt 2)

Hopefully, by the end of this week, this busy time will be over…. only to make way for another, equally, busy time. But hey, better busy than idle, I always say.

So I’m taking a bit of a break from numbers and balances, and dive right into the continuation of my “revisiting Gyeongbukgong series. (Check out the first part here.)

SoKor 2015: Gyeongbukgong (Pt 1)

Did you notice something different about my blog? It’s just a liiiiiiittle change, so you might not notice it, but yes, I moved hosts. I figured I have to make sure that I won’t lose the memories (yes, they are memories) that I write about and share in this little corner of the internet. Granted, the migration is not full yet, I’m about halfway there still, so if you notice some distortions or wrong links, then I’m still in the process of fixing and tweaking them. Slow, baby steps.

For now, I’m going to continue with my South Korea travel series, and here’s another place that I revisited: Gyeongbukgong, or Gyeongbuk Palace.
