"Micro forbidden city" Gyeongbokgung Palace Tip by Gryphon25

Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul: 94 reviews and 225 photos


You can have a pleasent stroll around Gyeonbokgung. It wasn't that crowded when I went. There are many nooks that you can easily miss. Entrance costs W 1000. You should be able to see most of it in 2 hours. There are many places where you can sit and relax and enjoy the surroundings. Late afternoon is a good time to go. It closes at 5 or 6 pm depending on the seaon. You also have the option of visiting the National Folk Museum.

Address: Jongno Gu. City Centre
Directions: Get off at Gyeonbukgung staion on Line 3. Take exit 4 or 5 and then walk north.
If you are in the city centre then you can always take a taxi if you are a big group of people.
