Jongmyo

A beautiful, scenic, and peaceful shrine that includes 6 ancient buildings. The greenery is so extensive that you can easily forget you're in the heart of one of the world's largest cities. A beautiful park, very good for walking and checking out the shrine and park's plants. We were there around 4 PM and it was just right, not too sunny and not too cold. The park closes around 6 PM, so watch your time. A great park for a walk, run, or bike ride with the family. On weekdays, you can only enter the shrine grounds if you are on a tour, and it's more relaxed on weekends. I didn't mind the tour actually, because it moved quite quickly and was quite informative. They also offer tours in English and various other languages. A wonderful public park in Seoul, Korea, where you can learn more about Korean history, and the entrance fee is only 1,000 won per person. The weather was nice and we enjoyed the scenic park with other locals and tourists. The park is mostly flat, but there are some nice inclines when you walk further. Some places were blocked off, but there's a lot to see in the area. It took us less than an hour to see everything and it's quite close to Ikseon-dong where we went for drinks later.
