☆ Changing of the Guard

In ancient times, the royal guards of Joseon Dynasty performed the given task by guarding the Gwanghwamun Gate, the entrance of Gyeongbokgung Palace where the king ruled the country. This ceremony has been reenacting from 1996 and became one of famous attractions in Seoul.


☆ Cheong Wa Dae(Blue House)

Our next destination is Cheong Wa Dae which president’s residence. The signature markings of the Cheong Wa Dae are its blue tiles. The blue tiles are beautifully harmonized with Mt. Bugaksan which located behind Blue house.

Seoul Tower opened to the public on October 15, 1980 and has since become a major tourist attraction. The 236.7m Seoul Tower sits atop Namsan Mountain (243m), Seoul Tower offers panoramic views of Seoul and the surrounding areas.


☆ Jogye Temple

We’ll firstly step by Jogyesa Temple. Unlikely most other temples in Korea, located deep in the mountains, Jogyesa Temple is located in the center of Seoul downtown. You might feel sad there’s no fresh air and beautiful nature among the temple but Jogyesa temple has a role of calming down stressful mind and forgetting busy life for a while in the downtown. The main building of Jogyesa temple is Daeungjeon. The Daeungjeon is about 500 years old. In front of the Daeungjeon, you can see a seven-story stone pagoda containing named Jinsinsari.

Bukchon was traditionally a residential area of the nobility during the Joseon period, and did not undergo any significant changes until the 1920s. However, in the 1930s, Seoul’s administrative districts were expanded and its urban structure was transformed into its modern appearance.
