Seoul Day 3: Return to Gyeongbokgung Palace

On the third day, we returned to Gyeongbokgung Palace after breakfast in the hotel.


There is a wide boulevard leading to the palace. King Sejong’s monument stood in the Gwanghwamun Square, north of Gyeongbokgung. King Sejong is best known for introducing Hangul into the Korean language.
