you can literally walk into the place though the back-gate of Changduk-palace. But still need to buy the ticket.
This palace is much smaller, but the scenery is beautiful when you visit during Autumn. There are many photogenic spot you can find and to take gorgeous pictures.
I have to say, the Guards were all actors. It was OK to watch but you have not missed anything if you missed it.
This palace is another great historical place you should visit. When I was there the Cherry trees were in full bloom & the honey bees were all over them. That was another extra bonus to see that made it even better.
The most well preserved Korean palace and it offers the historic appreciation of Korea and Korean culture.Guided tours are available and it is a beautiful palace.
Massive area to cover, but overall all the buildings are relatively the same. You can't go inside, only look from outside. In winter it gets cold doing such activity. Nonetheless worth going to. Not like indoor palaces of England or Turkey.
MRT: Exit 4 of Hyehwa Station, walk for 10mins.Glad that we book the city walking tour at visitseoul.net for a free tour guide!
I visited this Palace (along with the neighbouring Changdeokgung Palace) at the end of November 2014 whilst on a work related trip to Korea. In my opinion this Palace is not as beautiful or a grand as it's neighbour but it does have more of a tranquil feel to it as you walk it's tree lined paths. Entrance to Changgyeonggung Palace is very cheap at KWon 1,000 (about GB£0.60) and hence great value!You can also walk north of the Changgyeonggung Palace in the lovely 'Changdook Park' to the 'Changgyeonggung Greenhouse (Daeonsil)'. This is a large Victorian Glasshouse, built in 1909 next to an ornamental lake, that is home to some amazing plants... Well worth a visit.
