Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul Reviews - Write a Review
It is one of the oldest and largest palace in S Korea and is also the most crowded one too, making it a little difficult to enjoy its grandness. There are free guided tour so check it up if you are interested. Be prepared for the school kids on excursions and the tons of local and oversea tourists and also lots of walking as the ground is big. For a total immersion, rent a hanbok and enjoy free entry to the palace.
The subway takes you right to the entrance. 3000 fee to enter is amazing. If you want to rent a costume nearby for 10000 then you get free entrance. Touring of actual buildings is limited, but able to see in a few. There are tours offered but we did not take one. Read that tours of the pavilion are available but must be booked via internet at least one day in advance. Wear sunblock as shade is minimal. Wear good shoes as path can be uneven. The architecture is amazing and we really enjoyed as this was our first trip to an oriental country... completely different than anything we had seen. We also watched the changing of the guard. ..very interesting.
Very interesting to walk around with a guide to learn about the history. Architecture and designs are nice but because this was rebuilt, it doesn't have a high level of fascination (it's basically a replica). Quickly make your way to the Museum to learn some interesting things. If you dress in Korean traditional clothes, you get a discount (or free). So you will see many young persons in traditional clothes (you can buy from nearby shops if interested).
Beautiful palace but I was very disappointed at the lack of opportunity to enter any buildings. Our free guide was charming and knowledgeable. A must see place if you are here for a few days. The admission price is very reasonable.
Lovely place to go to get a glimpse of the past. Sadly, most of the structures were reconstructed because they were destroyed. Would've appreciated more information displayed at each building/site. That way, tourists can get to learn more about it without having to hire a guide
