  • A nice break from the urban surroundings. A less busy palace than the other larger ones nearby.
  • A bench place between the main gate and the palace. Good for taking a nap in the afternoon unless there are no homeless peoplec lying on a bench.
  • Quiet place to look at the architecture without crowds
  • It is a good place to learn a bit of the korean kings and nice poace to walk around quietly especially outside its walls where you can find nature.
  • 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.
