I had fun with my family dressing up. It’s like time traveling. Being in a traditional outfit inside a palace, surrounded by buildings and large advertisement screens is a cool experience.

This historic monument is located in the middle of a bustling city.

We didn't really go into the palace grounds. (I was more interested in other palaces tbh.) But if I had the time and energy, I'd probably stick it into my itinerary. Nonetheless, it looked pretty great even on the outside. And there's a nice garden at the side.

The main royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty. I was mindblown with the landscape and architecture of Gyeongbokgung! Paul loves visiting these kinds of landmarks and despite the long walks under the sun, it was all worth it.

One of my favorite memories when visiting Seoul was renting a hanbok (traditional Korean outfit) and walking around the Gyeongbok Palace to take pictures as if I was living there at that time. The dresses are very ornate and look beautiful with the majesty of the palace. I would recommend this place for any future sightseers in Seoul. It is something that should be experienced and would be enjoyed by anyone who loves great pictures of themselves. Put yourself in the middle of Korea’s history 🙂

I already went here on my first trip to Seoul, but figured my family should see it as well! After all, this used to be the main royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty. It’s amazing how it stands in the middle of all the modern structures Seoul has built since—still one of my favorite things about this city! You can’t help but be in awe of how much heritage they’ve been able to preserve. (Yes, @caldefool was game enough to try the hanbok with me! 😜)

Without having to drive far, Intramuros allows you to enjoy yourself in a rich history hidden behind huge walls and cobblestone street that have been destroyed, preserved, and rebuilt many times. By visiting Bahay Tsinoy, Casa Manila, or the Distileria Limtuaco Museum, the country's oldest distillery, you may find yourself in the tactile traces of diverse cultures that influenced Intramuros, such as American, Spanish, and Chinese.

Intramuros is one of the best tourist spots where people can visit and explore. There are museums that you can visit and take pictures for your best experience. Visiting the museums there is really good because you will see things that you did not expect to exist and you will be able to learn about it. The area is also accessible for food and drinks if you need to buy. I would highly recommend you guys to visit Intramuros with your family, friends or special someone.
