Cheongwadae Or Blue House - Review
The Blue House is the official place of residence for the President of the Republic of Korea. There are quite a few buildings in the Blue House complex and all of these official buildings are designed keeping intact the traditional Korean heritage and architecture.
The interiors of the buildings are quite modernized and the entire complex spans over sixty two acres. The grounds upon which the presidential complex is located is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in Seoul and this is mainly because the grounds used to be the gardens for the Imperial Palace.

The Blue House (Korean: 청와대; Hanja: 靑瓦臺; Cheong Wa Dae; literally "pavilion of blue tiles") is the executive office and official residence of the South Korean head of state, the President of the Republic of Korea, and is located in the capital city of Seoul. The Blue House is in fact a complex of buildings, built largely in the traditional Korean architectural style with some modern elements. Built upon the site of the royal garden of the Joseon Dynasty (1392–1910), the Blue House now consists of the Main Office Hall Bon-gwan (Korean: 본관; Hanja: 本館), the Presidential Residence, the State Reception House Yeongbin-gwan (Korean: 영빈관; Hanja: 迎賓館), the Chunchu-gwan (Korean: 춘추관; Hanja: 春秋館) Press Hall, and the Secretariat Buildings. The entire complex covers approximately 250,000 square metres or 62 acres.
New changes since the last President was impeached and since I have lasted visited Seoul. There are new digital changes inside the Blue House that shows improvements in South Korean technology. Stopped by the cafe to try a new type of tea. There is an actual town called "White House" so don't get it confused and call the Blue House the "South Korean White House" as an American tourist.
History place but lack of explanation in English and other languages
Great experience to visit the house of the ROK President. Old and new architecture harmonizing makes the surrounding very attractive. The garden is well conserved especially the 800 years+ tree.
