On Friday I visited a famous palace in Seoul named Gyeongbokgung. I have been on the outside of Gyeongbokgung but never the inside. When I went on Friday it was a rainy afternoon so not many people were there, but there was free admission!
The palace grounds is very expansive and includes various buildings, ponds, and foliage. It’s a stark contrast to have traditional Korean architecture along side sky scrapers and cars. Last Friday it was wet and foggy, which made for some pretty cool photos of the mountains in the background.
You also could see inside certain rooms which were decorated they would have been during the Joseon Dynasty. The amount of intricate detail is incredible.
I really enjoyed the pond with Koi fish.
There were also paths you could take for a walk.
I had a really fun afternoon and I am very impressed with the beauty of the palace.
