Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul Reviews

  • Free guided tour with Free Tour Seoul. The guide was super helpful. The palace is grand. Our group got there early morning 9:15 AM and there were not many tourists. The ticket prices are reasonable, $3 for foreign and free for 65+ seniors. The tour can be finished in about an hour and a half. Palace is well kept. However it gets repetitive after a while. There's a change of guard at 10 AM. Don't forget to attend that.

  • This place is fantastic! Have a lot of the Korean history over there. Spread around the area you will find several different attractions like the country side style and how the folk people used to live, beautiful gardens and houses..., the museum inside is also very nice. There are some options to rent a traditional clothes that you can walk around and take epic photos wearing like a folk Korean. You can expend at least half day to explore everything. In cold seasons the weather may get too cold but still very nice to check it out.

  • A must see when visiting Seoul. It shows the culture and beauty of the past. It is located close to some of South Korea's most iconic statues and you can get a glimpse of the Korean blue house, the equivalent of the USA's white house from inside. Wearing traditional Korean dress while visiting the palace is now trending. The traditional dress adds to the atmosphere and makes photos taken appear more authentic, as if they were taken at a time past when the Palace was thriving.

  • This is hands down the best place in Seoul. This palace has so much history and beauty in it, it's actually really hard to write down into words. You have to go see it for yourself. It's super serene and beautiful. If you get the chance, go at night.

  • Gorgeous place! I've never had the privilege of seeing anything like it before. The tour guide from the airport was awesome as well, very knowledgeable. Its a stunning palace, very well maintained too. I loved it!
