Experience the excellence of Korean traditional crafts at the Bukchon Crafts Center. You’ll visit the education center and the gallery here. Then, head to the Tteok Museum at the Institute of Traditional Korean Food, dedicated to preserving traditional kitchen equipment used by Korean ancestors for many generations. You’ll see various types of rice cake and the different methods used to make these delicacies. You may even have the chance to make a rice cake yourself. Nearby, the Gwangjang Market, located in the Jongno neighborhood of Seoul, was the nation’s first permanent traditional market. Established in 1905, the market today is home to more than 5,000 stores selling fabric, bedding, handmade crafts, ibaji food and hanbok. Many of Gwangjang’s stores and alleys have remained essentially unchanged from day one. It is not uncommon to find noodle restaurants and hanbok stores here that have been in business for three full generations. Lunch will be either a market experience with vouchers for purchasing the items of your choice or a sit-down lunch at a local restaurant.
