Gyeongbokgung is the LARGEST palace in South Korea, and also the most popular. reach before 4pm if you would like to visit it in winter season. or 5pm if not in winter.
unfortunately, I reached at about 430 and missed the entry. because I took my own sweet time over at Changdeokgung and slowly walked over to Gyeongbokgung. hahaha. yes, it’s walking distance. but it’s not exactly near. it’s funny that we actually followed the road signs for cars to get to Gyeongbokgung heheheh.
what’s behind me is the Gwanghwamun gate directly facing the main road. that’s just the first gate of the palace. fuh. and from this gate to the next? probably another 100m walk.
TIP : see that thing bulging out from my jeans? battries die 50% faster in cold weather. so it’s best to keep it around your body so it can last longer =D.
and the NEXT gate of Gyeongbokgung. even more grand. but this is the gate where you need your pass to get in. eventhough according to wikipedia, there are THREE GATES.
awesome place to take pictures though. =D.
the second gate, the Heungnyemun gate in close up =3. look at those details!
I peeked through the second gate and that’s the third gate! I guess the second gate is still the prettiest!
Geunjeongmun, the third gate.
