  • Very cool palace! would definitely recommend a visit. You don't really go inside the buildings but there is a lot to see and the some buildings are open so you can see inside from the outside!

  • This was the first palace I visited in Seoul. It was nice but not as nice as some of the other ones. It lacked the elegance and beauty of the other palaces. Having said this, I still enjoyed...

  • Absolutely love the history of Korea and this is beautiful! The price to enter is cheap. We have a family of 4 (3 year old and 4 month old) and only had to pay for the two of us adults. The totally was 6,000 krw to enter. Kids are free until 9 years old I believe. The palace was really stroller friendly, but we made it work. Just very rocky and bumpy. We also went in the middle of Summer (end of July) and it was HOT. Bring a lot of water. This palace has a ton of little buildings to see. You can book a secret garden tour to see the gardens with the ponds and flowers. That would be a separate cost and has a specific time you can go. We’re glad we saw this!
  • Korea's oldest palace in Seoul, 400 years old, Beautiful and well kept and the most interesting history. Great place to visit!!!
  • Calm and peaceful to walk around inside of the palace. What a view in right in the middle of one of most advanced city in the world.
  • Beautiful place in 🍂 Autumn to visit ...you can see the history with your own eyes...there are the rooms of Queen her mother and their dinning hall... And it also has sun shade clock... A bif giant size stone made turtle where the people of that time use to dig umbilical cords of their babies ... A beautiful pond surronded by trees and have so many orange 🐟 will give you the feeling of real touch of nature....
  • Fare is very less compared to other palaces.. it's 1000 won only. And the palace is too good to visit.
