  • PUI SHAN PEGGY 28 Aug 2018
    The Kimchi & Hanbok experience was too great. Teachers can speak well English and explain the whole process very clearly. It is worth to try.
  • MIU KUEN 23 Aug 2018
    My mum and I didn't enjoy this activity very much. When we arrived, we were asked to choose the Hanboks, but the clothes turned out rather dirty. Then when we started the kimchi making, the cabbages were rotten and had to throw away before the lady got the second one which still looked dry. About the Tteokbokkid making, it didn't take long to fry everything, the instructor asked us to turn off the fire, however the cabbages were still not soften enough to eat. According to the duration of the event listed on Klook, the three activities lasted for one and a half hours, however, it only took us 45 minutes to finish all three activity.

FAQs

Activity Q&A

Q: Can my children join the Hanbok Experience only? Will they be able to enter the Kimchi making course?

A: Yes, children can participate in the Hanbok experience without taking the kimchi making course. They can enter the kitchen area to observe the kimchi making process off to one side. If they wish to participate, please make sure they purchase a ticket for the kimchi making course (same price as general admission adult ticket).
