A beautiful peaceful place in the center of the city. I recommend buying the integrated palace ticket as it offers great saving

In the middle of busy city, this palace was so lovely inside and out. A very quite place to visit if you want some time for yourself.

I visited all the palaces in Seoul, but I liked this one the best. The palace and halls are smaller, but I liked the wooden details. Moreover, the compound, garden, pond, trees and the Grand Greenhouse, a conservatory built in 1909, are beautiful and calming....More

This palace is adjacent to the Changdeokgung Palace. It is smaller and seems to have more green space than the other palace (if you don't count the Secret Garden). It has not been as recently painted. There is a nice hall where you can rest...More

I gave this palace three stars, not because it isn't worth a visit but rather because it's less interesting than its two neighbors. If you have the time I would recommend visiting all the palaces in Seoul (including Gyeonghuigung and Deoksugung). If you're limited in...More

If you are a history or architecture buff, then this palace is one to visit. There are many similar around Korea, but the ones in Seoul are absolutely worth the visit. A maze os smaller replica buildings give you tons to look at and the...More

This palace is amazing. You need to get around inside them to understand how they used to live. I recommend to wear light shoes so you walk around.

The palace is right next to Changdeokgung hence it is very convenient. It has some cherry blossom trees as well, although not as beautiful as those in Changdeokgung. At the rear there is a large pond and a greenhouse which seems to be under construction...More

Entered from the back through the entrance to Changdeokgung. We didn't have to pay an entry fee since we had the Discover Seoul pass. The palace area is smaller than both Changdeokgung and Gyeongbokgung. The buildings were similar to the ones in Gyeongbokgung as it...More

Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul,
Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s
most important historic sites and neighbourhoods.
Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area
is rich with history and culture in its palaces,
shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of
Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt.
Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue
