Visit the bustling city of Seoul during any season and you'll be in for a beautiful treat. We loved visiting Gyeongbokgung Palace to see the changing of the guard and the nearby Bukchon Hanok Village to see a historical and calm side of the city. he food was unbeatable at every corner from Michelin recommended noodles and spicy rice cakes to mouthwatering BBQ pork and fragrant kimchi dumplings. The GwangJang Market was an absolute highlight of our trip where we sampled plenty of local delicacies served at the variety of stands and restaurants. Myeongdong is a must visit for all the cute shops and unique cafes. You can pick up all the famous Korean beauty products on offer and try street food in between shops. DongDaeMum is another must see shopping area for Seoul's famous wholesale fashion markets and a variety of night markets selling popular local eats. At sunset we searched for anywhere with sweeping city views or a romantic spot beside the Han River to enjoy stunning skyline. Make sure to visit one of the city's many luxurious bars for a true treat and finish the night with late night Korean BBQ. A perfect weekend getaway for a group of friends or couple looking for a fun and exciting city.
I made a naughty pose in front of Jingfu Palace, do you like it? But technically I dressed in good boy style!
If you only have one chance to visit a palace in Seoul, I highly recommend Gyeongbokgung Palace. It's the largest and most impressive palace of all the five palaces here. We witnessed the changing of the guard around 10 am, and I was awe with the performance. #wintergetaway
The biggest palace in Seoul city, Gyeongbokgung is wonderful. If you visit in the morning, you will see the changing-guard ceremony which is very traditionally unique. You can also rent the traditional clothes from stores nearby and take lots of pictures in the palace, like I did. Do not forget to also take pictures with the palace guards as they dress very beautiful too. #HalloTrip
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.
