Day Five

Gyeongbokgung Palace - Bukchon Village - The War Memorial of Korea Bongeunsa - Gangnam - Banpo Bridge

When we arrived at the Gyeongbokgung site, we could hear some drums playing in the distance. Turns out it was the changing of the guards cerimony.

After that it was time to get ticket and see the palace.

We made our way to Bukchon village, a nice little area where residents live in traditional built houses.

Inspired by a certain song we decided to check out Gangnam. Like every destination today, we take the subway to reach it. It's one of the most clean and efficient subways I've come across.

Our original plan was to go to a park, but it was closed this Monday. This Bhuddist temple was a good replacement though.

Last on our list was the Banpo Bridge. It has a light and light and water show mounted on the side.
