Many of VIP’s foreign patients want to travel Seoul when they come for treatments at VIP. In fact, it is actually recommended to walk around a little bit to swell less and recover fast after the surgery. While your stay in Korea, VIP would like to recommend you some places in Korea for you to experience culture and history. VIP’s number one recommendation is definitely Gyeongbokgung Palace.
What is Gyeongbokgung Palace?
VIP’s favorite place for Seoul Tour is Gyeongbokgung Palace. Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung is the biggest palace of Chosun Dynasty, located in the middle of Seoul. This palace was burnt during Japanese colonized era, and was restored in 1867. Gyeongbokgung was used as King’s and politicians’ office, royal family’s living area, and resting area.
VIP and Gyeongbokgung Tour
Last month, some of VIP patients from Singapore and staffs wore Korean traditional dress called “Hanbok” and went to Gyeongbokgung tour together. By wearing Hanbok, the admission fee is free of charge. Walking in a beautiful palace with hanbok on made us feel like we are in the middle of Chosun Dynasty. Experiencing Korean history and culture was a special moment for both VIP staffs and patients.
More and more people come to Korea to receive advanced medical treatments and skills of South Korea. However, medical tourism is not all about coming to Korea and having surgery or treatments. It is about learning, experiencing, enjoying Korea’s culture while receiving a high-quality medical treatment. Before the weather gets cold, we are planning to have another Gyeongbokgung session with our dear patients. We can’t wait to wear hanbok and enjoy this last moment of autumn at a beautiful Korean traditional palace.
