"Palace guards at Gyeongbokgung Palace" Gyeongbokgung Palace Tip by suhadis

Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul: 94 reviews and 225 photos

Very much like those of the western counterpart, these have elaborate costumes on them! It's hard to take a photo with them because 10 other people are thinking about the same thing!

I saw a Change of Guards ceremony outside of the Palace once on a Sunday. I wasn't too sure if this was done every week but the commentary was delivered in Korean, English, Japanese and Mandarin.
