Guideline:6 Special stuff you need to get at KOREA! ^^

Did you guys still remember about my previous entry?? 5 worth stuff to buy at Korea? I told all of you that I will write separate entry about special stuff to get at Korea isn't it? so here it is :D If you get any chance to travel to Korea, make sure you will take a note of these things in your souvenir list! The reasons why I am saying this is those stuff that I will list down soon;  you won't get the original taste or quality at any other countries except Korea! 

I know these days people telling me this, hey! we were living in technology savvy era, we can buy it online! I agree but somehow seeing it for real at their home country with lots of choices is better right?? ^^* Where you can hold it and ask about it from the native speakers, as well you can check the quality too! :D Sometimes when we buying online, the stuff that we get is not up to our expectation!!

Lets move on to the list then!!

1- Jeokkarak (Korean Chopstick)
2- Hanbok
3- Hanji doll
4- Kimchi
5- Gochujang
6- Seaweed (김)

If you wanna know more about Jeokkarak. You may read it here. Korean chopstick were different from any other Asian chopstick so make sure to get at least one set for yourself!! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

While hanbok is a traditional clothes for Korean. They wearing it during some special occasion. Men and women wearing hanbok with different design. You may check it here.

Any of you know what is Hanji doll?? In order to make hanji doll, it require a particular skills and precisely. Not every one can do it well! Hanji doll were made traditionally using a high quality paper (from mulberry tree) produced in Korea.For more information about it, click here.

Next stuff to get at Korea is Kimchi. I know that you can get Kimchi at your own country as there are a lot of Korean restaurant these days. However sometimes for original taste you can't get the best of it unless at their mother country!! ^^

Gochujang is the next stuff! Well for having these you might need to consider about airport regulation first! O_o Some countries they did not permit some amount of liquidation to bring in. Yes gochujang is only available at Korea though!ㅠㅠ Or may be you can find it at Korean town at your home country??^^*

Last but not least is 김 (seaweed). Laver and seaweed is the same things, it is well known as best diet food in Korea!If you can see, most of Korean eat seaweed anytime as their snack! ^^ However I'm not really into it as I don't like fishy smell. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋTechnically, having seaweed is a tradition for Korean as well Japanese but Korean seaweed drying method is different from Japanese. So I guess that's why you must get it at Korea plus the price is more reasonable! :P
