Changdeokkung: it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the last living quarters for the Joseon Dynasty royal family and my favorite palace in South Korea.
New meets old. You can rent hanbok, traditional Korean clothing, near the palace and then run around the grounds taking selfies.
Changdeokkung was built in the early 15th century, but many buildings were damaged during Japan’s occupation of Korea from 1910-1945.
This folding screen of five mountain peaks, a sun and a moon — called Irworobongdo — always sat behind kings of the Joseon Dynasty.
