Gyeongbukgung Palace is the oldest palace in Seoul. It literally means “wish for your blessing and prosperity.”
Gwanghamun gate is the main gate of the palace.
There are lots of complex inside the palace. I think half day isn’t enough to explore it.
This is my favorite spot. Anyone would look good with this background. hihi!
Gyeonghoeru pavilion is used for royal gatherings.
I didn’t take too much photos because my hands are freezing! For me, winter is not a good time to visit the palace.
Before you go there, you must check the schedule of changing of guards. This is one of the activities that you can do inside the palace.
National Palace Museum and National Folk Museum can also be found in the palace. You should check them out too in my next blog posts. 🙂
