We particularly visited this place to see where the shooting scene of the famous Goblin Korean drama took place. It's called a palace but of smaller proportions compared to other palaces. It's quiet and pretty now that the flowers are in bloom (spring season). A...More

Quaint remnant of what was once a larger palace complex. We saw Unhyeongung on the map, so stopped in while on a walk thru the area. Free admission, 30-45 minutes to see it all, including a small museum of "relics" and a few 'window' displays...More

As others have said, this site is pretty small; you can check out everything in just a little over .5 hr. While it pales compared to nearby Gyeongbukgung and Changdeokgung, it's still a pretty place to see, especially in the winter when the field is...More

This is a small replica of a small palace that once stood here. It's completely free to visit and you do actually get what you pay for. Not much. It's interesting enough and there is a small museum on site, but otherwise, it's just a...More

It's great to look around. The buildings are very nice. It's not as big as others in the city nor as colorful but it is worth seeing.

Chanced upon this palace. We stayed in a hotel near anguk station and walked past the side of the building several times without knowing it's a palace! But it's actually just beside anguk station exit 4. It's opposite the anguk area with lots of eateries....More

Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to
Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed
for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean
homes (called hanok), many of which are found in
Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted
into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses,
and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s
traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side
