  • If you get a chance to watch the watch changes, is really a spectacle, with colors and lush clothing style. Usually crowd for photos at the time of return, but it's worth watching. The palacio has a fine Asian and umamplo patio.

  • Trees tinged with red, and was just beautiful during this season, but this is just inside the gate and Park have become like that was really nice. Visitors are day tours of Korea Madame had, next to secretly hear description mitari (lol) on just one note explanation of Japan is nearly broke at that time is everything, so I 切nakatta it is.

  • Pretty small and nice palace. Not many other tourist were here so it felt really calm too. A portion of the palace was closed off when I came. There's a pathway that circles it and you can see the palace from above, that's kinda nice.
  • Small. In a remote location (relatively speaking). But worth a visit nonetheless
  • Gyeonghuigung Palace really is the size of the scale of the Seoul Museum of history. But if you look at the left side of the school is now under the auspices of the Palace is the place ... ... ... ... ... ...

  • Unfortunately the scale of entrance fees, nor the Palace rustic charm. Near to visit the Seoul Museum of history.
