    Walk within this area, centered on what used to be the
    western gate of traditional Seoul, and you'll get a
    glimpse of Korea’s past through the beautiful and
    historic buildings that are scattered throughout.
    Whether wandering around Deoksugung’s palace walls or
    touring more historically somber sites such as
    Seodaemun Prison, this is one of the best places for
    culture, architecture, and history lovers. Jeongdong
