Additional Information

Introduction

Gyeongbokgung Palace is located in a corner of central Seoul, the first palace constructed during the Joseon Dynasty. Gyeongbokgung features gorgeous scenery all year round, with cherry blossoms in the spring, green trees in summer, ginkgo trees in autumn, and pearly white snow in winter. Korean dramas, such as "Da Jang Geum", "The House of Kings", and "You from the Stars" have all been filmed here. The east side of Gyeongbokgung Palace is Geonchunmun Gate, with Yeongchumun in the west, Sinmumun in the north, and Gwanghwamun in the south. Gwanghwamun Gate is the main entrance to the palace, featuring exquisite craftsmanship, clever architecture, and a magnificent stylistic design. The changing of the guard ceremony is certainly worth a watch.
