Day 3 in Seoul and we went straight to Gyeongbukgong Palace right after we had breakfast. We took the subway again from Myeongdong station. We kinda knew we were on the right train since there were two ladies in Korean costume on board assuming they were also heading to the palace, and we were actually right about that. Did you know that if you wear a Korean costume you will get inside the palace for free? But we just to pay the 3,000 won or about p130 pesos for the entrance fee or else we will be sweating like a wet chick inside a costume given the weather that day.
Gyeongbukgong palace is the largest among the five palaces in Seoul. It was undeniably blazing hot that day and if you followed me on snapchat you know how many times I complained about the weather (reposting the stories today, by the way, so follow me sheiladytiu on snapchat). But still we didn’t let anything stop us from entering the palace. We were in owe seeing how beautiful and how big the palace is. And since we didn’t had a tour guide we practically went around in circles and got lost on our way out.
We actually cut short our tour at the palace since the heat was so draining. I think it was 32 degrees celsius that day but it really felt like it was 40 degrees. We were armed with our unbrella, portable fans, hats, shades & sun block that day but still the heat was just too harsh. Would really love to come to Seoul during Spring or Autumn season.
