Dating back to 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace served as the residence of the Joseon dynasty rulers, their households, and governments. Though much of the original structure was destroyed by fire in the late 16th century, the palace was reconstructed during the 19th-century reign of King Gojong. The expansive complex includes a number of pavilions and halls, as well as the royal family's private quarters. Also on premises, you'll find the National Folk Museum, National Palace Museum, and a number of traditional Korean gardens.

Gyeongbokgung Palace Reviews
日本語ガイドさんが無料で案内してくれます。時間を確認していくといいと思います。 オンドルの話や妃の話など知らなかったことをたくさん教えてもらえました。建物も綺麗で感動しました。ドラマの風景も蘇ってくるようです。 チャンドックンやプックチヨンハンオックマウルと一度で回ることをオススメします。 more »The Japanese Guide will guide you for free. I think it is good to check the time. I could tell you a lot about the story of Ondol and the story of the princess. The building was also beautiful and I was impressed. The scenery of the drama seems to come back. I recommend that you turn around at once with-Changdeokgung and Pucchion Han Ockmaul.
不小心選到假日去景福宮！人真的很多！但還是很好拍！四月櫻花開了，搭配韓服真的很美！宮廷大小不算大，輕鬆逛逛不會很累。如果遇到有表演和宮廷解說一定要看！會很有氣氛的！景福宮真的很好拍，手機相機一定要充飽電，我們拍了六個小時到全部器材都沒電了才願意離開下次還會再去呢！！！ more »Accidentally choose to go to the King's Palace on holiday! There are really a lot of people! But it's still a good shot! April cherry blossom, with Korean clothes really beautiful! The palace is not big in size, and it won't be tiring to hang out. If you meet a show and the palace, you have to watch it! It's going to be very atmosphere! Gyeongbok Palace is really good shooting, the hand machine must be filled with saturated, we filmed six hours to all the equipment is not electric to leave the next time will go again!!!
Really awesome palace! Definitely rent the traditional Korean clothing and roam around the palace grounds. It's an amazing experience, not to mention the historical significance of it. The palace grounds are beautiful and picturesque. It is definitely one of the must see places when you are on Seoul!
Night flight landing in Korea by morning, followed by the first place of sightseeing. Gyeongbokgung Palace. Trust me, I thought I will be one of the few during this off peak season, but oh-no. Literally spilling over with people from all walks of life, of course, we walked alongside them in the huge area. Traditional definitely speaks for itself, plus history has it at well in this Palace. Admirable structure and architecture, and of course the changing of the guards is one of it you will see. We on the other hands, had about an hour in this palace for seeing and of course picturing. Beautiful. Must be considered as one of the prides of Korea and a must visit as well.
