Changdeokgung, or Changdeok Palace, is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site and was the favored palace of many Joseon princes. The architecture laid out harmoniously with the natural topography of the site, it’s easy to see why!

The Changdeokgung Secret Garden located in the back, also known as Biwon, is a sight to behold and you may need to make reservations ahead of time in order to experience this natural beauty. This attraction is limited to 100 sessions per day, so 50 are available online and onsite on a first-come, first-serve basis. This is easily our favorite palace and not to be be missed if living or visiting Seoul!
