[Travel] Seohwa Hanbok 서화한복
During my last trip to South Korea, the kind folks from Seohwa Hanbok 서화한복 sponsored us a day rental of hanbok costume rental.
Although I’ve been to South Korea umpteen times, this is my first time wearing hanbok to Gyeongbokgung Palace.
Do you know?
Admission to Gyeongbokgung, Changgyeonggung, Changdeokgung and Deoksugung Palaces is free to all visitors wearing hanbok.
KY and I had lots of fun with our beautiful hanbok and taking lots of photos. We felt like we were having our wedding photo shoot again.
Seohwa Hanbok 서화한복 has wide range of beautiful and luxury quality hanboks for you to choose from. Their beautiful hanboks are prettier than the hanboks we wore during our wedding photo shoot in 2016.
Hanbok costume rental comes in 3 different packages:
- Basic 4 Hours – 18,000 Korean Won
- 1 day ( same day return before closing ) – 28,000 Korean Won
- 2 days ( next day return before closing ) – 38,000 Korean Won
Additional hours charge – 5,000 Korean won per hour
Normal accessories for ladies will be provided for free (Hair bands, Hair ribbons, hanbok handbags, Inner skirts)
Special accessories have extra charges ( Kings hat, Kisaeng hat, Royal male hat, etc.)
That hat that KY was wearing is Kisaeng hat.
My floral head wreath and handbag were provided complimentary. There are lots of hair accessories and bag designs for you to match your hanboks.
Each customer will be provided with two fitting chances. In cases of a misfit in Hanbok size, an additional fitting chance will be provided.
Conveniently located right next to Gyeongbokgung palace.
Only 3 minutes away by walk from Gyeongbokgung train station exit no. 4.
