Changdeokgung Palace: Visit this UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site that is known to be the most well-preserved of the five remaining royal Joseon palaces. Walk around its beautiful garden and marvel at the splendid architecture of this palace that represents the beauty of Korea.
N Seoul Tower Observatory: Enjoy unobstructed views of the picturesque city skyline from the roof terrace of this observatory.
