Revisiting Gyeongbokgung Palace : Seoul

When it comes to beautiful palaces with unpronounceable names,  Gyeongbokgung Palace  in Seoul (or Gyeongbok Palace 경복궁) is got to be one of the finest. It’s my second visit to the palace, the first time being with a Taiwanese tour group, and it’s different wondering around by yourself.

For one, the palace seemed much bigger than I remembered and I was actually able to discover huge areas that we just didn’t venture into with the group and guide. But more importantly, it feels different when you’re not on a "be on the bus in 10 minutes" schedule, you have time to appreciate just how lovely the place is beyond the endless historical details of where the emperors did what to whom and when.

 

It’s a great tourist attraction. Though the place suffered through some massive wars, it looks amazing and the Koreans do a fine job of making everything tourist perfect.
