    Changdeokgung Palace. There...

    Changdeokgung Palace. There are quite a few palaces around but I think this one is the most interesting to visit. Don't miss the Secret Garden (Biwon)and Nakseonjae!
    The kings stayed here longer than at the main palace Gyeongbokgung.

    Changgyeonggung Palace at Seoul, South Korea

    This is one of the most popular ancient palaces in Seoul with many buildings and a large landscaped compound. It is linked to the Jongmyo (Royal Shrine), another popular attraction by a bridge across a road.

    This is another of Seoul's historic palaces. During the Japanese occupation, a zoo and botanical garden were built here. Afterward, it was restored to its former glory.

    We witnessed the ceremony of the changing of guards in full colour and fanfare. You can also request to try the traditional costume of a palace guard here.

    old and new

    It was really interesting walking through the courtyards and seeing the rising buildings that surround the palace.
