This is the largest and most impressing of the royal palaces in Seoul
Not to be missed
After visit this Palace there are interesting neighborhoods and markets near by also museums so you can plan a full day of. Sightseeing in this area before heading to the famous shopping and street food areas

If you are visiting Seoul, Gyeongbokgung Palaca is a MUST! You can only see the gardens with a guided tour, which you can arrange inside (many languages available).

Nice view of the palaces and picturesque place to go around. Enjoyed my sightseeing! Some areas are under restoration and renovations. Place is quite huge but feast for the eyes!

I had been to Seoul many times, but never able to visit Gyeongbokgung Palace. Glad I did this last trip. They have free guided tours in English which last and hour which was helpful in learning more about the palace and grounds. The changing of the guard ceremony happens at 10 and 2.

Right, before you visit this place be sure to rent a Hanbok outfit! It really does make the whole experience worthwhile. You get to pick your outfit and walk the palaces amongst tourists and locals also doing the same. Admission to the palaces is free if you're wearing the Hanbok outfits :D

Its really scenic and quiet and its rather beautiful. However we couldn't find much information on the buildings themselves so I'd recommend a guided tour if you're really interested. We could only explore for an hour as we only rented the Hanbok for an hour but you could easily spend a couple of hours here.
