Changdeokgung Palace Seoul Korea In Seoul, South Korea within a 10 minute walk from my Hostel near the Anguk Subway station is the Changdeokgung Palace. I walked over there today with my new friend Rowley from England to take a English language tour for 3000 Won, about 3 US Dollars here are many photos.
“Changdeokgung (Changdeok Palace) is a palace set within a large park in Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea. It is one of the "Five Grand Palaces" built by the kings of the Joseon Dynasty and because of its location east of Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeokgung is also referred to as the East Palace. The literal meaning of Changdeokgung is "Palace of Prospering Virtue".” Changdeokgung on Wiki
This is my type of tours, less than two hours walking distance from the Hostel and cheap enough to enjoy without a question mark.
I have no idea why, but there were many men in Suits.
The women on the right was the Korean Guide speaking English, the girl on the right was in front of Rowley and me the whole way, and I made sure to include in photo because she help me and Rowley to enjoy our tour.
