Changgyeonggung Palace
#3 of 244 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.
