Top Sights to Visit while in Seoul:
Buckcon Hanok Village, located between Geyongbokgung and Changdeokgung, is home to about 900 hanok, traditional Korean homes which were first built in the 14th century during the Joseon Dynasty. While it is a busy tourist area, you should make sure to make your way to “North Village” and wander the charming streets as you admire the patterned walls and tiled roofs and contemplate the modern city in the distance.
Changdeokgung is one of Seoul’s most beautiful palaces and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Originally built in 1405, Changdeokgung became the royal family’s primary residence when Gyeongbokgung was destroyed in the 1590s due to the Japanese invasion. You will be left in awe as soon as you cross Donhwamun, the impressive main gate.
The National Museum of Korea will take you on a journey through Korea’s past. Don’t miss the Golden Treasures from the Great Tomb of Hwangham and the Baekje Incense Burner, which dates back to the 6th century during Baekje Kingdom. Kids will also have fun at the Children’s Museum inside as there are countless hands-on features and spaces for little ones to play.
