Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace is also commonly referred to as the Northern Palace because its location is furthest north when compared to the neighboring palaces of Changdeokgung (Eastern Palace) and Gyeonghuigung (Western Palace) Palace. Gyeongbokgung Palace is arguably the most beautiful, and remains the largest of all five palaces.

Information & Tips about Gyeongbokgung Palace?
I don't really fancy historical building, but the night visit event is quite interesting.
Night event start at 7pm for a limited period during September and October. There is a 500 tickets limit per day for foreigner, but we have no problem securing a ticket on weekday night. Some people wore Hanbok (traditional korean costume) and take lots of photo at the palace. There is also a 15 minutes light show at the pavilion, which is quite colourful.
The night view is an interesting experience, seeing people wore Hanbok make the place more lively (we realize later you can rent Hanbok at Insadong shop for 15000won).
