O mais belo palácio de Seul. Onde a realeza viveu por mais de 400 anos. Vale muito a visita. Com mais atrações que os demais. Pague e vá ao Secret Garden! Incrível. more »Seoul's most beautiful palace. Where royalty lived for over 400 years. It's worth a lot of visit. With more attractions than the others. Pay and go to secret garden! Amazing.
This is the main place for visiting in Seoul, South Korea. Very colourful and authentic. Located in the very center of the city, not far from the museum of Modern Art so, it's convenient to see both places in one day. The best part of seeing the King Palace is to enjoy the changing of the guard - the most colourful ceremony I've ever seen.
Lovely time learning ancient Korean history. It's so big. Some tourists dress in period costumes, walk around, & take selfies. It's a fun & educational experience. It's important to learn history.
