Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul

Jessica and I spent our final day in South Korea in Seoul.  One of the sites we wanted to make sure to see was Gyeongbokgung Palace. Located on the north side of the city it was the royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty. The Palace was originally constructed in 1395, however over the years many of the buildings have suffered damages that required reconstruction. We were surprised to see how expansive of an area the palace occupied, over 100 acres. We enjoyed walking the grounds learning about the various buildings and also seeing many young Koreans dressed in Hanbok, traditional Korean clothing. We agreed that Gyeongbokgung Palace is a must see for anyone visiting Seoul.
