We were fortunate to go at midday when it was quiet. Even the school parties were outside at that time Quite substantial inside though less ornate than the palaces in Seoul. However nice to see this without hordes of people

The palace is well preserved and there are many exhibits that show how life in the palace was at the time. Well worth a visit.

This enormous reconstructed palace is definitely well worth a visit but you do need a guide to make sense of it. It covers a huge area and gives you a good idea about royal lifestyles at the end of the 18th/ beginning of 19th centuries....More
