After Gwanghwamun squre we will move to Gyeongbokgung palace. It was the main palace in the Joseon Dynasty. For me this is the most beautiful, and it remains the largest of all five palaces. We will stroll around in the palace and move to Cheyongwadae (Blue house). The street was blocked and recently opened. This hidden area is quite and has nice views of mountains surrounding Blue house. We will walk though Tongin traditional market and visit Seochon Hanok village! The village has lots of Korean traditional houses, Hanok and nice cafes. You can enjoy all of these during the tour. Don't miss this out! I'm sure you will like it.
