    Qingwatai, it is said that there are 150,000 green tiles, each of which has a life span of more than 100 years. It is the presidential palace of Korea. If you want to go in and see it, you must make an appointment online in advance. If you follow the tour group, nine out of ten will take you to the door to take photos, and then take you to visit the Jingfu Palace. I was here with the tour group, just a group of friends stopped to take photos of the fountain in front of the door. Now I think they all have a little regret. It's very close to Jingfu Palace. If you travel with a group in Seoul, you will definitely come here. You're not afraid to find it. There's no money here, but it's not easy to get in. You need to make an appointment in advance. Here is the reservation website: http://english.president.go.kr/. It takes at least an hour and a half to get there. If you don't go in, just take a picture at the door, half an hour is enough. There is Jingfu Palace on the subway. Jingfu Palace is very close to here and you can walk there.

    Early booking of Le Qingwa Tai, because each visit period has 10 foreign places and 40 Korean places, so with a group of Korean grandfathers and aunts, the gathering place is in the parking lot on the east side of Jingfu Palace. It is striking that those passports and reservation numbers can be shown. They need to arrive half an hour in advance, and then go to Qingwa Tai by bus, waiting for a long time and strictly. Security check, take out all my liquid Band-Aids as dangerous goods... However, there are many beautiful staff to visit the route is fixed, in addition to the main building of Qingwatai can be photographed across the lawn is not allowed to photograph, including the green garden security personnel can be photographed on the tour instructions are not allowed to photograph... The translator obtained through the pledge passport listens to the introduction of scenic spots. After that, I can choose whether to visit the Seven Palaces, which is the ancestral hall of seven princesses. I went to see it once in a while because I thought it was rare to come in. There were English explanations, which were not interesting, and I had not made a bus back to the Fukuoku Palace with the army. As a result, the bus station was not found in the labyrinth. Once I left the security area, I could not turn back. Huijing Fugong... It's all tears. Please pay attention to it. What kind of corridor is the open area. We can't go back if we want to go back for the sake of daring the bus to pass by _________ So if there's a tight schedule, I suggest that you don't look at the Seven Palaces, just go back to the Fukuokang Palace.

    Tsing Wa Tai, the office of the Korean government. It is said that tourists can visit, but our guide did not say in, but pointed out outside, I do not know whether this area is called Qingwatai, or a certain building. I think it should be this one, because he specifically introduced the mountain behind to play a protective role.

    Qingwatai is the presidential palace of South Korea, with its back to Beiyueshan and south view of the Hanjiang River. It is said that 150000 pieces of Korean Qingwatai were used, so it is named Qingwatai. To visit Qingwatai, you must make an appointment on the official website of Qingwatai. The appointment day is half an hour ahead of schedule. After checking the information, a special car is sent to Qingwatai for a visit. There is a voice guide. The presidential palace is a bit simple, but the whole scenery of Qingwatai is still good. Finally, you get a cup as a souvenir.

    Qingwatai is the presidential palace of South Korea. It connects the back door of Jingfu Palace and backs to the mountains. It is integrated with the beautiful scenery of the mountains. I heard that Qingwa Tainei can also visit, and make an appointment online in advance. There is a statue of Phoenix in Tsing Wa Tai Square. Phoenix is a symbol of power in Korea. Hibiscus is also planted around Korea, also known as the endless flower, and Korean hotels are also distinguished by flowers, which are all kinds of flowers, equal to the stars on our side.

    Today, the political center of South Korea is Tsing Wa Tai. The plainclothes policemen, in twos and threes, can't see the carriage clearly and the exhaust pipe is connected with the mysterious vehicle underground, all of which show the difference here. Qingwatai was thinking about meeting the president working overtime. Also. No. Yes.

    Qingwatai is really a worthwhile trip. The scenery inside is quite beautiful. Everyone who enters the door also sends out a small handbag for handicraft, which is used to hold all kinds of data lines just right. Unfortunately, there are restrictions on taking pictures inside. Only a few pictures were taken.

    Qingwatai is a legendary place where the President of South Korea lives. It can't be entered inside. It's a matter of course. Looking outside, he basically has a renovated geographical location on it, which can be said to be quite good.

    Looking out of the door, unfortunately, there is no chance to make an appointment. The scenery is very beautiful. There are squirrels running around on the way to the door. The guards at the entrance are so handsome that they will try to get an appointment later.
