Unhyeongung, Seoul
(3.7/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
At Unhyeongung, explore the former residence of Prince Regent Daewon-gun, and learn how the Korean royalty once lived. Dating back to the 14th century, the site has grown and diminished over the years; today, a women's university occupies its grounds. You can explore the palace's historical female and male living quarters, as well as the event hall and kitchen. The last royal wedding ceremony was held here, and is faithfully reenacted twice a year to this day. See Unhyeongung and all Seoul has to offer by arranging your trip with our Seoul travel itinerary planner.

  • As the old palace. The building will resemble a large raised higher than the small building and building small room that doesn't so much.

  • Not known very crowded, so I went in the morning, did not exist. Look like to walk slowly and calmly in and around. Was doing a photo shoot, I can wear folk costume at a reasonable price.

  • But no Japanese tourists, South Korean tourists also affected atmosphere and rustic feel. One glimpse at life remains and nonchalantly, it was fresh. Was, everyone relaxed and laid-back air. It is a maze.

  • The original size is about 4 times than what's left of it. Originally it was a private resident. The emperor/king even promoted a pine tree he used to play to a minister rank. I was told here that many people say traditional Chinese, Japanese & Korean roods are the same but Korean roof is quite different.
  • This is one of the last palaces that was built and actually used by the Korean monarchy. As such it's less colorful than it's older counterparts and the architecture feels just a little less impressive. That being said, they rent out hanboks that you can wear around the palace and take photos in. It's a nice little way to spend an hour in one of the quieter palaces of Seoul. Insadong is also a short walk away to the east so definitely stop by a tea house or a restaurant if you get peckish.
  • It's a very interesting place to learn about South Korea's history.
