Gyeonghuigung Palace was almost 100% demolished during the Japanese colonial period. Few aspects of the original site remain, some preserved sections have been moved. Therefore, the rather small palace left today is really a reconstruction. While the palace is basically a modern reproduction it can still be appreciated for its use of Daemokjang, traditional wooden architecture. The reconstruction is superb, but the palace was built to only 1/3 its former size because the development surrounding the palace.
If you want to visit a Joseon dynasty palace and have it nearly all to yourself, Gyeonghuigung is the perfect choice. This free palace, receives a fraction of the visitors the other 4 royal palaces have during the year. I would recommend bringing a book and relaxing in some of the pleasant areas in and around the palace.
