Secret Garden and National Museum Tour
Highlights / General details
Your first stop is the Changdeokgung Palace, the most well preserved of the five remaining Joseon palaces. The grounds are comprised of a public palace area, a royal family residence building, and the rear garden.
The rear "Secret Garden", known as a place of rest for the kings, boasts a giantic tree that's over 300 years old, a small pond and a pavilion. The garden was kept as natural as possible; touched by human hands only when absolutely necessary. The most beautiful time to see the place is during fall when the autumn foliage is at its peak and the leaves have just started to fall.
Next, we'll proceed to the National Museum of Korea. See Buddhist paintings, ceramics and excavated artifacts in areas of interest, including the Ancient History Gallery, Medieval and Early Modern History Gallery, Calligraphy and Painting Gallery, Donations Gallery, Sculpture and Crafts Gallery, and Asia Gallery.
