๐Ÿ“ Must-Visit Spots

Palatial Chronicles & Timeless Tales

The palaces in Seoul are beautiful and it's absolutely worth taking the time to visit them. Maybe even have a photo session in a Hanbok! The area around the palaces are filled with Hanbok stores. I would recommend checking out a few of them to see which one you like the best and renting a hanbok from that store. I would recommend against purchasing the "Hanbok + Palace Entry" packages you see on the online stores as it locks you into a store before you've had the chance to explore what their offerings look like + If you wear a hanbok, the entry to the palace is free.

1. Gyeongbokgung Palace

Gyeongbokgung Palace
@bvajresh
Gyeongbokgung is the largest of the "Five Grand Palaces" built by the Joseon Dynasty. It's one of the perfect spots to take pictures with a Hanbok. If you're visiting Seoul in April/May or September-October, the palace is open at night. Exploring the palace with all its lights is something you should not miss!
