Lovely palace, and best appreciated if you join the free tour. You can also rent a hanbok in nearby shops -- I believe you get free admission if you do.

Firstly, this is one place to catch the glance, understand the culture. Most cetainly, this is a must for vising Corea/Seoul.

We went on a free Seoul airport tour to see this palace and did not get to see everything. It is a massive place where one should set aside a few hours to explore. We also went in the winter, when it was cold. I imagine in the summer it's a lot better. With that said, I really enjoyed walking and taking pictures of the various buildings. There wasn't too many places to go inside, but one could look into some of the main buildings, such as the throne room of the king.

This is pretty much a "must see" if you are going to Seoul and it is located right near the center of the city, so there's no excuse to miss it unless such things bore you.

Fee entrance with Hanbok attire. A lot of Hanbok rental shop Nearby. 2 hours of rental cost from KRW10,000 is sufficient for us to take photo and walk around.

Out of four palaces, Gyeongbukgong is the main palace. What I love about this place, it was easy to find when you exit Gwanghwamun Station. It was so big and can be seen far away. The changing guard ceremony will be held at 10 am on the front lawn.
