Gyeongbokgung PalaceNot only famous for it’s popular dramas, Seoul city also has so many beautiful places to visit for tourists such as below:

1. Gyeongbokgung Palace
It is the most important and largest palace during the Joseon Dynasty era. Its position is very strategic because it is protected by Mount Ganang in the north and Han River in the south. This palace was built in 1395 after still. The palace is so large that I myself have not spent any trips to all the areas within this palace even though it has been four times visit.

This palace is rich with Korean traditional art. Here also we can reveal the glorious history of the Korean Joseon Dynasty. Art of Gyengbokgung is still conserved and immortalized for the gaze of Korean youth as well as travelers around the world. Today, Gyeongbokgung becomes a symbol of the South Korean people’s spirit of telling.

If we walk so to the back door of Gyeongbokgung, we will get to Korean Blue House.
Outside Gyengbokgung, there is a place that must be visited by City Hunter drama enthusiasts that is Gwanghamun Square.
In Gwanghamun Square there is the King Saejong the Great (one of the King of the Joseon dynasty and it was he who created the letters of korea). There is also a memorial admiral Yi Sun Shin. Below Gwanghamun square is the King Saejong Memorial Museum and Admiral Yi Sun Shin.

2. Insadong
If you want to buy gifts and souvenirs from Korea to family, friends and loved ones, come to Insa-dong. The street is lined with shops selling souvenirs at reasonable prices. In addition, if fluent in Korean, you can bargain.
If you are lucky and came at the right time, can see cultural performances in Insadong ni. While shopping you can also learn Korean culture

3. Myeongdong
It is a paradise of fashion and cosmetics in Korea. There are many shops in the clothes and cosmetics either indoor or outdoor.

4. Cheonggyecheon Stream
A tributary that flows through the heart of Seoul, but cleanliness is maintained and preserved beauty. In 1970, the river was never missing from the Seoul due to lack of water sources from the mountain and rapid development on riverbanks. In 2005, the South Korean government began efforts to conserve this river. Interestingly, the source of the river water is obtained from underground springs. The scenery along the river is very beautiful and unique, especially at night. There are fountains and waterfalls in the beginning of the river and a variety of sculptures along the banks of the river. I always walk along the river from the start of the Cheonggyecheon stream plaza to Dongdaemun.

At the beginning of November each year, the river will be lined with lanterns large, beautiful and unique lantern festival Korea. I feel lucky to get to see the festival in autumn last year

5. Hangang Park
If anyone who likes exercise workout, can try travel to Hangang Park. There are many parks along the Han River with a variety of activities to do. Tteukseom Theme Park is where swimming and recreation are popular especially in summer. But in winter, the theme park will be turned into a field to play snowboarding.
