A #Seoul #vacation will bring you up close to the palaces, villages, museums, and markets much loved by locals and travelers. This is a city that has emerged in the 21st century as an economic powerhouse and maintained its rich, inviting culture.
#Visit the Gwanghwamun Square and see the statue of Sejong the Great, whose reign oversaw a golden age of literature, science and technology. The great leader sits before the grandest of Seoul’s five royal palaces, Gyeongbokgung, the Palace of Shining Happiness.
#Explore the adjoining palaces of Changdeokgung and Changgyeongung and see the changing of the guard at Deoksugung Palace. See yet another of Seoul’s great palaces, Gyeonghuigung, a royal refuge in times of unrest.
There is more than palaces in Seoul. Don’t miss the Namsangol Hanok Village, the Namdaemun Market and the peaceful wooded surrounds of the Bongeunsa Buddhist Temple, just to get started…
For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.
