  • Gyeongbok Palace to the Palace of tourism, but compared to a lot of people who have quietly come hard on the tour here, despite the free admission to people not to think. It is a quiet place. And a lot of it is the old form of almost no tarnish. Now called the restored form, free form of description lets this description. Gyeonghuigung Palace, information about the. I was visiting danyeowaseo and whatnot without much search too harrowing. Want to restore itself. Have a lot of interest and look where you want.

  • 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.
