From the temple, we drove a short distance to see the royal tombs Seolleung, where King Seongjong and Queen Jeonghyeon and buried, and Jeongneung, the resting place of King Jungjong. Their reign was during the time of the Joseon Dynasty around the 1500's.
Saturday morning was spent at the Seoul Temple, and that afternoon we visited the War Memorial of Korea. What a contrast between light and dark! For lunch we introduced the Beijing group to one of my first Korean meals, Samyetang - or ginseng and rice stuffed chicken soup. Learn more about it by clicking here.
We quickly walked through Namdaemun market and grabbed some street food for lunch, including Yachae Hoddeok, which is explained here. We got more than we bargained for from one shop owner! Then Mr. Kim took us to the Folk Flea Market, which captivated Craig and Terry for hours. That evening we feasted on traditional Korean barbecue (the photo is a representation only - found in bing images with no original reference) in Myeongdong followed with a new street food dessert - cream stuffed waffles. It was the perfect way to conclude their first "taste" of Seoul.
Thanks for the fun visit, Craig and Terry!
