No need to feel strange about it a lot of people are doing so, the fees of renting it is between 10 000 ₩ to 35 000₩ depending the model and the place you choose.
The Gyeongbokgung Palace is the biggest and best of the four palaces in Seoul . It is the only one of the four palaces to be opened on Monday. the atea it covers s quite large so you should plan at least three hours here . the late afternoon seems to have the least amount of crowds . There is a smsll heritage village attached to explore . There is a museum to explore as well. The garden area is under construction but should reopen soon . There is a small fee for entry . if you have only enough time for one palace in Seoul , then pick this one .
this palace is the largest in Seoul and is centrally located. there is a subway stop nearby. you will need 2 to 3 hours walking this area. this a museum and a small heritage park inside. they are currently working on thegargen area . best togo late in the day when there are less crowds .
This was the busiest but also one of the most beautiful palaces. I loved every minute spent here! I was lucky enough to arrive just before the free English guided tour around the palace which was excellent and highly informative. They give free tours in English, Chinese and Korean so be sure to look up what times these are.
a perfect place for photo ops! the Hanbok rentals are outside the palace but you can get in the palace for free if you wear traditional clothing in!
Very nice for a visit! Recommend going earlier in the day to avoid being out in the sun as there wasnt too much shade. You fan buy tickets when you arrive through the front gates. There are free English a few times a day. I didnt do one as their pamphlets were very informative.
A beautiful place, though more so for its architecture and gardens, as apposed to any other attraction one might expect, most of the rooms and structures are sealed off and currently there is alot of renovation going on. But the staff provide alot of wonders for your viewing and photographic pleasure. The best part of the area is the primary throne room which still contains the furniture and decor it had previously, the other is the gardens which while walking through the area are perfect eye candy and have amazing potential for beautiful selfies and photographs for anyone. An amazing historical place, not expensive and gives a good sense of wonder but in my opinion if you have been to Chinas' Forbidden City, it's pretty much the same experience.
