Gyeongbokgung Palace

The scorching summer in Korea didn’t stop me from visiting the widely open historical place in Seoul. This was our last destination because “save the best for last”. 😀 Despite the warm blow of the wind that slowly wasted away my makeup, I still managed to adore the site where a lot of things took place back in time. Kudos to the folks who have been industriously preserving the palace.

It was a delight to see a lot of people from different parts of the world coming to one particular place with a common goal. The keepers (if I may call them) of the palace were commendable due to their rules and so everybody enjoyed their visit without any trouble. I must say that the tourist spot appeared to be well-managed.

I felt so overwhelmed to be in a place where something relevant began and it was really a dream come true. ^_^

See these girls in Hanbok?

Perhaps I’ll be back with Hanbok on next time so to somehow immerse myself with the moment. That time of our visit was just too hot, wearing it could be a hassle. I salute those who came with it on despite the scorching sun.

Getting inside the palace is strictly prohibited. Glad I was able to take a photo from this spot.

If you’re interested in knowing about the palace, visit their site here.

My short visit to my dream-place-no-more was noteworthy and I’d loooove to go back and see the other beautiful places.

Til next time, Korea! ❤
