UNESCO World Heritage Site, Changdeokgung Palace


Member Rating 3 out of 5 by akakd on February 14, 2010

Changdeokgung Palace became a World Heritage Site in 1997. Located only a short walk away from Gyeongbukgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace was built in 1405. While Gyeongbukbung Palace is reminiscent of the Forbidden City in China, Changdeokgung Palace appears to me to be more calming than concrete. Behind the palace is a lush garden with a small pond and a pavillion where royals and tourists alike can rest and soothe the soul.

Again, admission is free for children under the age of 6 and seniors over the age of 65.
