Walk within this area, centered on what used to be the
western gate of traditional Seoul, and you'll get a
glimpse of Korea’s past through the beautiful and
historic buildings that are scattered throughout.
Whether wandering around Deoksugung’s palace walls or
touring more historically somber sites such as
Seodaemun Prison, this is one of the best places for
culture, architecture, and history lovers. Jeongdong
