"Changdeokgung Palace" Changgyeonggung Palace Tip by slang75

Changgyeonggung Palace, Seoul: 37 reviews and 75 photos

 
 

13th century palace in the center of Seoul. Take a tour if you can (english tours run several times a day) there aren't enough signs to give you the full story. The highlight of the tour is the "secret garden". It's a large garden in the rear of the palace that only the emperor and his wife could visit.

On a 1 hour tour we learned so much about this palace and about Korean culture from the 13th century on.
