If you are looking for a green place in Seoul then this is it. I love the lush green surroundings and walking up and down some hills. It is such a relaxing walk and because of the trees it is quite cool. I feel very close to nature; it is seems like I am not in the city except when... More

The 3 royal tombs are in a lovely park accessible by bus and subway. They are from the 15th and 16th century and as the dynasty had taken up Confucianism which entails respect and worship of ancestors, the tombs have been well cared for. Before you start, go into the History Centre beside the entrance and watch the video on... More

Although the statues and the outlook of the tomb were nice, we can't go in. We went to one of the tomb places in Seoul, which is a park with three tombs on the south-east bit called Seolleung. Only one of them was opened. And it was twice a day ONLY!! 10:30a.m. and 2:30 p.m. One of the other ones,... More
