They virtually all contain guesthouse, restaurants, cafes and traditional clothing (hanbok) rental shops. Some places within the village host workshops on making traditional alcohol or paper for example.
Seoul’s premier palace was originally built by King Taejo. Gyeongbokgung served as the main palace until 1592, when it was destroyed during the Japanese invasions. It lay in ruins for almost 300 years until it was started to be rebuilt in 1865. King Gojong moved in during 1868 but the expensive rebuilding of the palace virtually bankrupted the government. Watch the changing of the guard ceremonies at the main entrance, walk through the museums, ornamental gardens and appreciate some of Soel’s finest architectural sights.
This World Heritage listed Changdeokgung Palace is the most beautiful of Seol’s five main Palaces. The palace was originally built in 1405 as a secondary palace but during the Japanese invasion in the 1950s when Gyeongbokgung (Seoul’s principal palace) was destroyed, it became the primary royal residence until 1872. In order to see this beautiful palace you do need to join a one-hour guided tour.
