This past weekend Josh and I headed up to Seoul to visit some friends and see some sights! We will be going to Seoul more frequently in the future to explore and visit. Probably the coolest thing we did this weekend was explore Gyeongbok Palace. The palace is huge! There are so many smaller buildings on the property that you could spend days and days exploring the entire grounds, we walked around for an hour and a half until we couldn’t walk any more.
The palace was pretty crowded when we toured the grounds on a Sunday, but the farther in you walk, the less crowded it becomes…so the trick is to just out walk all the other tourists and you will be rewarded with photo bomber free pictures!
There were so many hidden treasure you could find just by walking around the palace…
There was simply too much to see on this trip to the palace, so we will definitely have to go back to further explore the grounds! There are even tours of this lake building that you can sign up for that we are going to try and do in the future!
There are also many traditional performances at the palace daily. You can see guards at the front gates and around 1 there is a performance in the large square in the palace.
All in all our trip to Gyeongbok Castle was a huge success and a total must see for any visitor to Korea.
