Day 5** Dec. 5 | Seoul | (B, L, D)
After breakfast, we will visit Ikseon-dong Hanok Village, offers a unique mix of modern and traditional elements, established in the 1920s.  Despite the passage of time, the village is still a lived-in neighborhood, home to many residents.  The twists and turns of narrow alleys may seem all the same, but each path is lined with attractive shops and cafes decorated with unique characteristics of their own.  Next, we will visit Tongin Market, originally established for Japanese residents in 1941, during the Japanese occupation.  It was converted for Korean street vendors after the Korean War. The market now consists of over 70 stores, most of which are restaurant and grocery shops.  The market features a Dosirak (lunchbox) cafe.  We can try to purchase some local snacks around the market with tokens from the cafe.   Afterward, we will get to experience Korean Culture.  First, we can try our hand at making Korean hand roll (Gimbap), we will have a chance to enjoy your creation.  Then we will enjoy the time trying on Hanbok (traditional costume).  Tonight, we will enjoy an innovative art performance “The Painters HERO”, with mind-blowing skills of live drawing and incredible visual effects filled with a witty blend of mime, dance and comedy right before your eyes.
