Changdeokgung palace
In the early 15th century, the King Taejong ordered the construction of a new palace at an auspicious site. A Bureau of Palace Construction was set up to create the complex, consisting of a number of official and residential buildings set in a garden that was cleverly adapted to the uneven topography of the 58-ha site.

The result is an exceptional example of Far Eastern palace architecture and design, blending harmoniously with the surrounding landscape.

Second, Bukchon

Bukchon is one of the few places in which traditional Korean houses are preserved to their traditional styles.
The name Bukchon comes from the Korean words “Buk” which means North, and “Chon” which means village. The reason for such a name is because it is located above Cheonggye-Cheon stream and Jongro.

Asian presidents, as well as renown artists, have resided in these housings.
The Gahwe 31-53 housing is where President Lee used to live.
Queen Myeongsung was born in the Kim Hyung-Taek housing.

Moreover, there are lots of Korean traditional sights to visit around Bukchon, such as Changdeokgung palace, Deoksugung palace, and Gyeonbokgung Palace.
We wear Korean clothes(Hanbok) around Bukchon and Changdeokgung palace.

You are felt Hanbok appeal and see  harmony modern time and today Seoul.
