Changdeokgung is one of my favorite palaces in Seoul aside from Gyeongbokgung. Changdeokgung or Changdeok Palace (궁 or”Gung” means palace) is one of the Five Grand Palaces built during the Joseon Dynasty. It was built during the reign of King Taejo in the 15th century. It features a public palace area, the royal residence and a rear garden known as Biwon. It is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
Transportation (By subway): Anguk station, Seoul Subway Line 3 (Exit 3)
Entrance Fee: 3,000 won + 5,000 won (Biwon or Secret Garden Tour)
Tip: Entrance is free if you are wearing a hanbok. 🙂 Take note that Changdeokgung is closed every Monday.
