  • Pui Shan 2 Jul 2018
    good time management and enjoy in the trip
  • Eizelynn Nerisse Uy 2 Jul 2018
    The activity was super fun and was a good way of understanding Korean culture! The place was quite easy to find and the location was convenient. The only thing that missed the mark for me to give it five stars I think would be the instructor who taught us. She was timid so the lesson was less fun and more of quiet. There were also times when she was unable to explain and answer some questions I had about an ingredient or component of the kimchi (she wasn’t Korean). Maybe it would be more convenient to be taught by an actual Korean perhaps???

    Place was easy to find. Near Myeongdong Station. Voucher easy to use. Just showed electronic voucher on my hp. Duration was abt an hour for hanbok experience (the instructor was very experienced and helped to take many pictures) and Kimchi making. After we took plenty of pictures, we changed back to our own clothes. Then we proceeded to the kitchen area and learned how to make our own Kimchi in a few simple steps. There after we were able to bring back our own made Kimchi in a vacuum packed bag. Was a fun experience.

  • Kiat Peng 12 Jun 2018
    The english name is Seoul Kimchi Academy. Convenient location. Before and after class can go shopping on MyeongDong shopping street. The guide is friendly and explain things patiently.
  • Hian Pin 10 Jun 2018
    We were early and the kimchi instructor was very kind, invited us for tea. The experience though short was quite enriching. Prawn paste was actually added to ferment the kimchi.
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).
