Many said that this was the best season to travel South Korea. Since the temperature is not too cold and not too hot.
Well, that’s the time we went there. 🙂
Beautiful flowers bloom everywhere — streets, parks and sidewalks. Full of radiance and joyful colors. It feels like you’re just walking in the middle of a very big garden.
I took pictures using my mobile phone (because it’s handy), so just please understand the image quality.
Of course, I wouldn’t miss the chance to visit their grand palaces. The historic places during different Dynasties (as depicted on historical Korean dramas). When I first caught sight of the palace, I felt like I went through a time machine. The ambiance of the place really brought me back to the past. (and of course, a playback of Scarlet Heart scenes crossed my mind)
By the way, you don’t have to pay the entrance fee to any palaces if you’re wearing the Hanbok (Korean Traditional Dress). I wish I had one!
They have many palaces and sadly I didn’t have all the time to visit all of them. Here are the palaces you could try:
- Gyeongbokgung Palace – also known as Gyeongbokgung Palace or Gyeongbok Palace, was the main royal palace of the Joseon dynasty. Built in 1395, it is located in northern Seoul, South Korea.Wikipedia
Changdeokgung Palace – also known as Changdeokgung Palace or Changdeok Palace, is set within a large park in Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea. It is one of the “Five Grand Palaces” built by the kings of the Joseon Dynasty.Wikipedia
Changgyeonggung Palace – a palace located in Seoul, South Korea. The palace was built in the mid-15th century by King Sejong for his father, Taejong. Wikipedia
- Deoksugung Palace – also known as Gyeongun-gung, Deoksugung Palace, or Deoksu Palace, is a walled compound of palaces in Seoul that was inhabited by members of Korea’s royal family during the Joseon monarchy … Wikipedia
- Gyeonghui Palace – a palace located in Seoul, South Korea. It was one of the “Five Grand Palaces” built by the Joseon Dynasty. Wikipedia
I got really excited when I see these locks of love. There are literally hundreds or even thousands of them. It is located at the N Seoul Tower.
Okay, that’s it for now. Hope you enjoyed this. See you on my next blog!
