What To Expect
Visit the most well preserved of the five remaining Joseon palaces - the Changdeokgung Palace. It served as a principal palace for many Joseon kings and was the second royal villa built after the Gyeongbokgung Palace in 1405. The grounds are comprised of a public palace area, a royal family residence building, and the rear garden.
The rear "secret garden", known as a place of rest for the kings, boasts a gigantic tree that's over 300 years old, a small pond and a pavilion. It was constructed during the reign of King Taejong. It was formerly called "Bukwon" and "Geumwon", but was renamed "Biwon" after King Kojong came into power. The garden was kept as natural as possible; touched by human hands only when absolutely necessary. The most beautiful time to see the place is during fall when the autumn foliage is at its peak and the leaves have just started to fall.
Next, we'll proceed to the largest museum in Korea - the National Museum of Korea. It houses precious Korean cultural assets that silently tell the story of the country's history from the ancient to the modern era.
