Experiencing Traditional Korea
I was still in South Korea and got enough time to visit another tourist spots. I was already touring Seoul and its famous attractions and this time, I am experiencing traditional Korea. Since I explored the capital of the nation, I was looking on a place near the airport. I did the Incheon City Tour.
The first stop was in a traditional park or garden.
Wolmi Traditional Park was formed into natural eco-friendly park from historic park at the edge of neo-modern period. It has various facilities, traditional garden with Korean style houses, walking way surrounded with nature.
The entire park was wide that touring around the grounds took about an a hour or more added up with some major information about the park and the history of the country. Guests got the opportunity to wear hanbok or traditional clothes. We were strolling within the park showing the houses for rich and poor families back in old Joseon dynasty. It was like an immersion to old fashioned Korea.
The second stop was at an international market.
Sinpo International Open Market is famous for the unique foods of Incheon originated including fried chicken and many others which enable everyone to enjoy typical street Korean food.
The market was lively and full of flavors. Just by walking inside the market, I can smell delicious and really aromatic Korean dishes. It was great, guests even get free taste before purchasing them. Prices were affordable and when it comes to cleanliness, the market was tidy.
Experiencing Traditional Korea was a success. I got the best of both worlds, the modern and the traditional side of South Korea. It was amazing to sightsee and be informed about the history of the country. I am a traveler who is more of knowing the history and immerse on the culture and the city tour I got was able to meet both.
