About the event

Seoul has 5 palaces: Gyeongbokgung, Changdeokgung, Changgyeonggung, Deoksugung, and Gyeonghuigung. All five waive admission fees for visitors wearing hanboks.  You don't have to dress up to participate.  Palace entrance fees are KW3,000 for those not dressed up.    We will visit Changdeokgung Palace and the Secret Garden.  However, because the Secret Garden is a Unesco Heritage site, we have to secure tickets in advance and can book online 6 days in advance. Tickets are limited.  Cost is KRW3,000 whether dressed up or not.  We would like to book the 10:30 tour.  PLEASE RSVP BY OCT 22 OR 23 SO WE CAN TRY TO SECURE 10:30am SECRET GARDEN TICKETS.  If you book last minute and can't get tickets, the rest of the palace is still beautiful and will be fun to wander around.   

We've identified a rental place near Anguk Station, Exit 1. Let's meet at 9:00am and go to the shop together.  You can dress from head to toe as even hair accessories and purses are available at these shops. Rental fees range from KW20,000 - 50,000 depending on the length of time of rental and what items you choose.  

If you want to choose your outfit in advance, feel free to stop by the shop (or any shop) beforehand.  The Hanbok shop we've identified opens everyday from 9 am to 9 pm.  Tell them you are a BASS member or guest and ask them to put it aside for you for 28 Oct.   Byeolgungteo Hanbok 별궁터 한복.  Younboseon-gil 10,Jong-ro Gu, Byeolgungteo Madang 2nd floor.  Anguk Station, Exit 1. When you exit turn right and turn right again at the Olive Young shop and the shop is just there on the right.
