An UNESCO World Heritage Site, built during the Joseon Dynasty in 1405, Changdeokgung Palace is both a highlight of Seoul and a must on any history lovers itinerary.
Gorgeous palace with a far wider variety of buildings than Gyeongbokgung, make sure you attend the secret garden tour for some of the most stunning views and architecture you'll see in Seoul.

Loved the whole Bukchon area as it had several quirky cafes and shops mixed with traditional handicrafts, traditional houses (Hanok) and was such a mix mash of sights and sounds.
You will be feted with picturesque views all round, from prettily preserved traditional houses to scenic views of the surrounding hills and palace rooftops.

Truly a worth Unesco world heritage site and also has a intangible component which is rare to have one place associated with both tangible and intangible world heritage.
... path and "usual" attractions that tourists would opt for (as it sounds a little more solemn) However for the entry price, the view and a guide to guide you through the rites, customs and korean psyche, why Not?
