  • Participated in the bell ringing ceremony at noon as per traction where citizens get to ring the huge bell at noon each day. Free korean costumes for photo taking opportunity too! Missed the patrolling ceremony
  • I just walked into this while wandering around. It's not really worth going all the way over there, but if you're around it's a neat building. There's a bunch of stuff in the area, as well.
  • the best place for sightseeing
  • I went there for count-down, but really too crowded. Couldn't even see a corner of the building lol
  • It's a nice historical building, but on normal days you can't get inside. You should have a look when you are around that area anyway.
