  • This site is very impressive and the story of the preservation of the writings of Joseon is meaningful. This area is a bit commercial, but they make a nice effort to point to history in the buildings and activity. I was impressed by the Koreans who rent traditional Hanbok clothing for the day to walk around and take photographs. Nevertheless, a young Korean woman in traditional Hanbok with blond hair is somewhat a personification of an oxymoron.
  • Well preserved piece of local history. The place is clean and offering some good sights for taking photos.
  • Filming location of K-drama Moonlight Drawn by Clouds
  • A quick tour is sufficient to see the whole palace.
  • Great story around this historic relics. Recommended! Tour guide will make your trip successful in terms of learning about the tradition and architecture.
