Cheongwadae Sarangchae is beautifully landscaped, and from the grounds and outside building decor you have to assume beautiful inside. Its the official residence of the President of South Korea. You need official invitation to visit.

The only thing worth going here for is the green screen room where you can take your picture alongside the South Korean President in various situations. The only information is a timeline of events which occurred during each President's term; there's nothing about the role...More
