Gyeongbokgung Palace

Gyeongbokgung Palace is one of those must visit places in Seoul, South Korea. Often referred to as the Northern Palace due to its location, Gyeongbokgung is the largest among the five main palaces. I have been to Seoul twice and it still fascinates me the second time I got to visit the place. At least, I can see some water this time around. The first time I was there, it was all ice. One of the main attractions to catch if you plan to visit this place is the changing of the guards ceremony which happens at around 9:30 am and 1:30 everyday except Tuesdays.  It is basically a re-enactment of a task assigned to the guards at the time of Joseon Dynasty.  So if you fancy this type of thing, make sure to hit the ground running early in the morning so you still have ample time to roam around the palace grounds thereafter.

Gyeongbokgung is located at 61, Sajik-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul. Admission fee at 3,000 WON.
