  • What beautiful and famous palace.... If you visit the place u will meet large number of people and different countries.. foreigners are enjoying wearing traditional Korean dress...I was supposed to wear king dress

  • Vast, beautiful, busy and colorful. To see it in the afternoon sun was great and the timing during the week meant for a smaller crowd. A description I read while walking around mentioned how all the passages and structures within the compound really made you pucture the business of the place when it was still and active seat of power. And really, you could imagine. A fully enclosed city with its own political intrigue all its own. Ending with a walk around the West side park, with the water surrounding another iconic structure made for lovely photo shots in the shade of the willow trees there.

  • Wonderful architectural style. Nice for a long walk and to see some real authentic Korean buildings. People can rent traditional outfits and walk around to live the experience. Easy access from the metro directly into the palace. After the visit, one can walk around this section of town. There is a river walk near by to sit down and feel in contact with nature even though one is the heart of downtown.

  • Great place to walk around! Buildings are very beautiful. The palace is huge. Great place to visit if you want to do something for free. I would only spend a max of 2 hours here.

  • Good place to sped time.. great way how they have protected their culture.. you can explore it with reading in English so it's good.
