Changdeokgung Palace
#2 of 221 Sights & Landmarks in Seoul
An UNESCO World Heritage Site, built during the Joseon Dynasty in 1405, Changdeokgung Palace is both a highlight of Seoul and a must on any history lovers itinerary.
Gorgeous palace with a far wider variety of buildings than Gyeongbokgung, make sure you attend the secret garden tour for some of the most stunning views and architecture you'll see in Seoul.

Changgyeonggung Palace
#4 of 221 Sights & Landmarks in Seoul
What I really liked about this palace was its gardens and the famous "secret garden" consider that you can only access that one with a guided tour booked on-site.
You can spend hours walking around the 4 sites, all in center of large city.Forbidden city impressive but this place better, as you can explore all areas.A must see.

Jongmyo Shrine
#22 of 221 Sights & Landmarks in Seoul
Truly a worth Unesco world heritage site and also has a intangible component which is rare to have one place associated with both tangible and intangible world heritage.
... path and "usual" attractions that tourists would opt for (as it sounds a little more solemn) However for the entry price, the view and a guide to guide you through the rites, customs and korean psyche, why Not?

Gwanghwamun Square
#24 of 221 Sights & Landmarks in Seoul
The scenery is beautiful of this place and you can view the magnificent Gyeongbokgung Palace and the Bukaksan Mountain in the back drop.
The first time I visited, there was 3 " snow and walking up the metro steps and see this status with the palace behind was one of the most wonderful sights you can see.
