Seoul Searching @ Gyeongbokgung Palace

Gyeongbokgung Palace - Seoul, South Korea

Gyeongbokgung Palace was the first place we visited in Seoul and it was amazing! The day was so perfect the sun was shining and we arrived there just in time to see the changing of the guard which is a heck of a lot different from London and a lot more vibrant I loved seeing all the colourful flags and uniforms.

After seeing the changing of the guard we bought our tickets and went inside, we noticed that they were offering free English guided tours around the palace so decided to join the tour as the palace was quite big and it's always nice to actually learn things about the places you visit.

Gyeongbokgung Palace reminded me a lot of the Forbidden City in China which I had visited back in 2010, it was very beautiful and vibrant and I loved seeing all the different houses the royal family resided in. The tour around the palace lasted about an hour and afterwards we were free to wander the palace on our own so we decided to go check out the museum next door (also free of charge) and have a quick refreshment break before exploring, also you should know the sweet potato latte I got as weird as it sounds was actually really good and perfect to warm you up on a cold day!

We ended up spending over 4 hours at the palace in total and the sun was starting to set as we left which made it look even more pretty, it was definitely the perfect introduction to Seoul then afterwards we went over to Insadong ate some awesome bibimbap and bought ALL the beauty products, the perfect day!


What places have you fallen in love with at first sight?
