Gyeongbokgung, Seoul

On Christmas Day, the temperature in Seoul drop to about -1 degs, so needless to say, me and Jean wasn’t quite in the mood to do anything much but eat. That said though, we were determined to see Gyeongbokgung Palace(경복궁 (태극기 길). Getting to Gyeongbokgung was easy, all you had to do was take the subway and get off the stop at Gyeongbokgung Palace stop.

I’ve always been a big fan of old architectural buildings so the palace was a must to visit. If you time your visit properly you’ll be able to see the guards changing ceremony too!

We managed to catch the one that happened at 1pm and it was quite an interesting thing to see. After the changing, you can also try out their outfits but we weren’t quite in the mood to change given the weather so let’s just stick to just photos shall we?

Grounds in Gyeongbokgung is huge, so if you are thinking of making a full use of your ticket price, you might want to consider allocating a good few hours in the compound.

I’m not sure if this lovely old chap is there all the time but there’s this old man that takes your photo for you and have it printed out for you for free

and if you can’t already tell from the chilly weather, the lake had a frozen surface.

Sat after wondering for a little for a cuppa.Took the opportunity to write out some postcards too

and continued our tour

and that is it for all the places I’ve visited whilst I was in Seoul for 4 days. I’m going to be writing a eat and shopping entry so stay tuned!
