Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul, South Korea

Hello luuuxers!
We wanted to visit this palace really badly and we didn`t have enough time because we went in the evening and 5pm is the last time you can enter and by 7pm you have to get out. And it is huge park that containes all of the palaces and a secret garden and two museums. So were in a rush and running around and trying to take pictures. It is a really beautiful place I totally recommend visiting it. And it is located nicely, so you can see the palaces and museums, Gwanghwamun square, art galleries, Cheonggyecheon (stream) - absolutley stunnig at night, because the City Hall station is really close to Gwanghwamun station, so it is a great way to see a lot of beautiful thing on one trip.
Gyeongbokgung, also known as Gyeongbokgung Palace or Gyeongbok Palace -- is a royal palace located in northern Seoul, South Korea. First constructed in 1395, later burned and abandoned for almost three centuries, and then reconstructed in 1867, it was the main and largest palace of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty.[1] The name means "Palace" [Gung] "Greatly Blessed by Heaven" [Gyeongbok].
In the early 20th century, much of the palace was destroyed by the Empire of Japan. Since then, the walled palace complex has been gradually restored back to its original form. As of 2009, roughly 40% of the original number of palace buildings still stand or are reconstructed.
