Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul

Gyeongbokgung Palace is a tourist attraction in Korea that represents Korean history and traditional culture. Located in Seoul, it was the royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty, which began in the 14th century, and it is one of the most visited tourist destinations for domestic and foreign tourists.

Gyeongbokgung Palace is a typical Joseon-period-style structure, and in the middle of the city, it was used as a palace for the general public and aristocrats. The interior of the palace is designated as National Treasure No. 1 and World Heritage Site according to conservation recommendations, and is a nationally important historical, cultural and architectural heritage.

There are various structures in the palace, and retro tourist buildings such as side roads, stone walls, and flower roses, and landscape paintings are showing impressive images together. This is a mixture of pine forests and lawns inside the palace, luxurious bouquets, and sacred atmosphere, making this place so beautiful.

One of the most visited places inside the palace is Sujeongtong. From the square in front of the government office, the main auditorium of Gyeongbokgung Palace, high-rise birds form a yellow layer in the diagonal floor with kitchen blisters, showing a beautiful appearance.

The most popular time for visitors to Gyeongbokgung Palace is during the daytime, during which children can enjoy traditional handwriting, celadon paintings, and baleen carving of the palace using weights and celadon as an experience tool.

The entrance fee to Gyeongbokgung Palace is often famous for being expensive. However, since there is a set free admission time, you can visit Gyeongbokgung Palace cheaply if you use the free admission time. Free admission is from 2 p.m. every Wednesday to the end of the palace setting.

Lastly, I recommend you to visit this place at least once during your trip to Seoul. Here, you can experience the calm and beautiful Korean history and traditional culture. It's one of the first places you must visit if you come to Seoul.
