날씨 좋을 때 창덕궁 나들이 하면 정말 좋아요! 자연 경관도 멋지고 도심 속에서 옛 건축물 구경하며 우리나라 역사도 공부할 수 있습니다. more »Great place to stay! You can also study Korean history with the natural scenery of the city and its old architecture.
Хорошая ухоженная территория. Не дорогой входной билет. Пара аутентичных мест для фото съемки. Остальное нужно дадумывать своим умом more »Good well-groomed territory. Not an expensive entrance ticket. A couple of authentic places for photo shoot. The rest should be given to your mind
This is the main place for visiting in Seoul, South Korea. Very colourful and authentic. Located in the very center of the city, not far from the museum of Modern Art so, it's convenient to see both places in one day. The best part of seeing the King Palace is to enjoy the changing of the guard - the most colourful ceremony I've ever seen.
Lovely time learning ancient Korean history. It's so big. Some tourists dress in period costumes, walk around, & take selfies. It's a fun & educational experience. It's important to learn history.
