Changdeokgung Palace

Changdeokgung Palace & Huwon Secret Garden
Changdeokgung Palace is the second oldest palace in Seoul.
This is my favorite part of the palace. This was built for the most beloved concubine of the King.
I’m amazed with the detailed designs of the palace. They said that this is the most preserved palace in Seoul. 
For the first time, I tried to join a guided tour. Guided tours in English of the garden are at 11:30, 1:30 and 14:30. This tour takes about 1 hour and  30 minutes.
The long walk was really worth it. 
I suggest that you go here during Autumn or Spring. I’m not pleased with the frozen pond and withered trees. 
This is the Bullomun gate which is also known as the gate of everlasting youth. 
This is where the king and queens stroll

How to go there:
Three Options
  • Take Subway Line 1, Line 3, or Line 5 to Jongno 3-ga Station (Exit 6).
  • Take Subway Line 3 to Anguk Station (Exit 3).
  • Cross the border between Changgyeongung and Changdeokgung. (I did this)
