We love to travel and understand deeply the heart of the traveller. The long dreaming of journeying to distant lands. The budding anticipation of sights unseen, and foods yet untasted. So when two brave and beautiful young women from Hong Kong contacted us for photos, we completely understood them. They had a reached a milestone in life, becoming 30 years old together and decided to commemorate it with a trip to Seoul, a city that is now considered one of the jewels of Asia and a top travel destination. From the grandeur of the Korean palaces to the romantic alleyways of its well preserved historic districts, Seoul has much to offer.
First stop! A Korean style pictorial inside the studio! Korea is also famed for its studio style photos, and for its extremely excellent hair and make up service. We love the deep friendship these lovely Hong Kong women showed us and were happy to photograph them to their hearts content.
After studio photos, we took the girls to Bukchon Hanok Village, a charming and very historic district in Seoul, filled with tradional Korean houses called hanok. These beautiful wooden houses are the remnant of old Korea, a time where life was less hurried. The area is lovely for walking and we always highly recommend it.
Traditional wooden houses, lined with bamboo, and two beautiful Hong Kong girls wearing matching “30” shirts! 30 is definitely the new 20.
This has to be one of the most majestic spots in Korea, and perhaps one of the most grandest views in the Bukchon Hanok Village area. This beautiful traditional residence can be found off the beaten path if you know where to look. The owner kindly let us in and we would be more than happy to take you the reader to this magical place.
After a short tour of the residence, the guide for the house offers us Korean plum tea. It is exquisite.
