"The Royal Palaces of Seoul..."

The historical stories, artistic architecture and the scenic landscapes of the 'secret gardens' making KOREA even more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. 


Among the 'Five Grand Palaces', we only visited two: Deoksugung Palace & Changgyeounggung Palace. Though we didn't have the time to visit Gyeongbokgung Palace which is the biggest and largest main palace in Seoul  but for us Chaggyeounggung Palace is already one HUGE and beautiful palace!


It was a long but a lovely walk in the cool weather with a wonderful authentic ambiance....

We're so ready to explore this PALACE....

 the ancient 'gadget' -  macam calendar la lebih kurang...




end of a lovely & very informative tour...

this white old tree looks a bit spooky to me*goosebumps*

its getting dark at 5:20pm just 10mins before the palace closes....
I thought of doing only one entry on 'The Royal Palace' story but then how to fit in 'tonnes' of photos in ONE post *tough job* it would be so boring tho!  So, to make it easy for you guys to read it and also for not having to scroll down till like 'forever', please stay tuned for the next entry on Deoksugung Palace which was the first we visited earlier of the day. 

Happy Saturday Everyone.... !!  Have a blast weekend ahead!
