During the second day of my trip in Seoul, we visited the War Memorial of Korea and DMZ (Panmunjoem). If you asked me, I wouldn’t know much and wouldn’t thought of visiting these places but because my boyfriend is so highly interested in it, we did! And it was a very eye-opening tour.
We booked this private tour a month prior to our visit thru Seoul City Tour and paid approximately RM350 for two pax. And we were lucky enough that our tour didn’t got call off like the others due to the sensitivity of certain issues among both North and South Koreas.
And here the begins the pictory…
Before heading to the border of both Koreas, we had a yummy lunch! It taste like bakuteh except that it is a little sweeter! And the lady behind me was our lovely tour guide of the day, Laura.
Here comes Daryl’s happiest moment as we were stepping in the Joint Security Area! And making our steps to the North Korea, freely! Haha. We get to take pictures with the guards on duty but everything we do in there needs to be extra careful. It is so strict that we need to go thru a lot of procedures before getting there but it was so exciting too!
We were also observed by the North and we were not allowed to do funny gestures during then. Hahaha damn chi gik because I always like to point here and there. I had to keep my hands in my jacket to refrain myself, and getting myself into trouble. LOL
This tour took us half a day and by the time we reached back to the city, it was already 5pm. And I’ve witnessed this! Don’t know what is that but seems interesting. Then, we stopped by Myeongdong for some street snack and quick cosmetic shopping. It was only a drop-by because I kept it in the next day of my itinerary. Hehe.
We took a quick rest in the apartment later and headed out again to Dongdaemun that night. We chilled by the river and at a nearby coffee store, enjoying being part of the coffee culture and what not. Hahaha. Did some window shopping too but the stuff at the area is really pricey. I could not bring myself to buy anything there! So many pretty clothes but so expensive T___T
Psst! We made the winter look less cold but in fact, the weather was approximately -5 degree Celsius. I was actually dying from the chill during the day tour. Staying out in the windy weather at the outskirt area is not funny… but I like it! :D HAHA!
Okay, done for this post… Nami Island is next! It will be a picture-loaded post. Teehee!
