One of the “must do” things while in South Korea is to visit a palace. Gyeongbokgung Palace is arguably the most beautiful and remains the largest of all five palaces. Changdeokgung Palace is outstandingly beautiful. Hence, it was Spring everything looks amazing and everyone should not miss visiting this palace.
The atmosphere of the palace come alive as a lot of people were dressed in Hanboks. I love the style of the architecture liked the details of the walls and buildings, you can see the uniqueness of the buildings.

For the independent travellers like me, the subway is the best choice to go to Gyeongbokgung Palace. You may take the subway to Gyeongbokgung Station, exit 5 on line 3 or Ganghwamun Station (Subway Line 5), exit 2 and walk 400 meters.
If your stop is Gyeongbokgung Station, You’ll see below gate near the subway station then from the station it will bring you out directly in front of the National Palace Museum and you can freely enter a side gate into the entry courtyard.
