  • This was a must see place on our Seoul sightseeing list.. Be sure to stick around for the changing of the guard. You can also take pictures of the guards and have you picture taken with them as long.....  more »
  • This palace in Seoul located across from City Hall plaza is very nice. They have a palace guard program where you can sign up and be a part of a ceremony.  more »

  • Beautiful place! Especially the greenhouse. I was very happy to see some flowers and so much greenery in winter. If you like cats be alert bc there are many hiding around the greenhouse. They enjoy playing in the small park right in front of it.
  • Very pretty Palace and gardens. Not as crowded as some of the other palaces. Has the first Western greenhouse built in Korea. Nice lakes and buildings.
