Visited Seoul and got advices to visit the old Kings palace.

Magnificent place for details different from one in Beijing with color ( green) and that there is more nature inside.

The best thing was the guard change: it happens .. every day 2 times

I tell you times soon

They follow traditional ceremony that tells loads about local ways.

Times:

Small one: 10:00 and 12:00
Big one 11:00 and 14:00

Cost incide is 3000 won .... but if you wears traditional outfit you can walk in for free.

So better find a shop and dress like local for a day.

When you're in seoul you have to visit Changdeokgung, a wonderful palace area with parks and a lot of interesting buildings. You will also see several Korean people in traditional dresses, which is very interesting and beautiful.

Sometimes I feel like the cultural side of Korea is hard to find, everything centered around tourist gimmicks, etc. But this place really feels genuine.
