[see] Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul

Gyeongbokgung Palace is the largest and most important palace of the five palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty. It is also the one to suffer the most damage during the 1592 Japanese invasion, but that can’t be seen as remarkable ongoing restorations are being made to make it look like it once did.

This is a visual diary of why you need to pay the G-Palace a visit next time you’re in Seoul. I hope you find it as visually orgasmic as I did.


Gwanghwamun is the main entrance of the palace and you can catch the changing of the guards, on the hour. Don’t skip the folk museum tucked at the back of the grounds, there’s a section all about kimchi. Very interesting indeed.
