  • Settle down, then the heart of Seoul, and the place is. Entrance gates are ginormous, but very neat and, no contrast with the thickness of the roof and columns only in the. The lush park like.

  • Not particularly significant compared to the other palaces, but still worth a visit if you want to see Seoul History Museum or the 'Hammering Man' statue nearby. 
  • Amazing Korean history, After Gyeogbokgung, one of the most amazing places. Definitely must see. Yu will find a very interesting pat of the Korean Culture.

  • 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.
