Hi, All! The 4th day of my Korea Trip last January is here! –finally– xD
Direction to Cheongdeokgung Palace using Subway :
Anguk Station (Subway Line 3), Exit 3.
Go straight for 5min.
Jongno 3(sam)-ga Station (Subway Line 1, 3 or 5), Exit 7.
Go straight along Donhwamun-ro Street for 10min.
We alighted at Jongno 3-ga Station –because I only need to change 1 time– and just walk straight after the exit and you’ll find the palace on your left. You’ll see local restaurants on your left too …
After walking for around 8-10 minutes, we finally arrived at the palace. This palace is not as crowded as Gyeongbokgung
Spent too much time in front of the palace, took so many photos here hahaha. The gate itself is too mesmerising :)) LOL. And becos of that, we missed our English guided tour by 1 minute *facepalm* Begged the ahjumma to let us pass but she didnt let us *cries* So, we bought the Chinese guided tour. FYI, we cannot enter the garden (Secret Garden Palace) without a guided tour. It’s called HUWON Tour, btw.
I pre-booked my English Guided tour on their website, you just need to book online, no need to pay first, and print the reservation. Show the reservation ticket to the ahjumma and she’ll give you the admission ticket.
Anyway, before the Huwon tour started, we can explore the main palace.
And after that we’re ready to explore the garden!
A small garden in the middle of the pond.
How come these old Korean people create such a beautiful place like this ;_; *touched*
Btw, everyone were listening to the tour guide, us, who cannot understand Chinese, took a lot of photos :)) I felt bad for the tour guide, sorry ahjussi ;_;
There’re too many photos of the garden, I’ll skip it to the end. check out the gallery here.
And here we are … at the end of our tour. The Palace is bordered by modern houses.
The tour ended around 1 o’clock. Finally! It’s a little bit boring especially since we don’t understand the tour guide :)) But the palace and the garden are beautiful. I didn’t regret coming here.
