    Blacklink is very comfortable to use as a transportation from airport to your lodging or vice versa. Drivers are very friendly as well. In addition, they do arrive before you arrive which is very admirable. We hope to use this service again on our next trip back here in Korea.

    Thank you for the nice experience with Blacklink airport transfer. It was easy for us to locate the driver as he was already waiting at the gate where we exited. The rate of Blacklink is also lower than other airport transfer providers. And the size of the car is just right for the 3 of us. The car also looks elegant. The pocket wifi for rent is also a big help since I don't need to queue at the wifi rental counter at the airport. This is very convenient for arriving tourists. And the rental price is also reasonable.

    Gyeongbokgung Palace (경복궁)

    marker

    161, Sajik-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul

    home

    Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace is also commonly referred to as the Northern Palace because its location is furthest north when compared to the neighboring palaces of Changdeokgung (Eastern Palace) and Gyeonghuigung (Western Palace) Palace. Gyeongbokgung Palace is arguably the most beautiful, and remains the largest of all five palaces.

    The premises were once destroyed by fire during the Imjin War (Japanese Invasions, 1592-1598). However, all of the palace buildings were later restored under the leadership of Heungseondaewongun during the reign of King Gojong (1852-1919).

    Remarkably, the most representative edifices of the Joseon Dynasty, Gyeonghoeru Pavilion and Hyangwonjeong Pond have remained relatively intact. Woldae and the sculptures of Geunjeongjeon (The Royal Audience Chamber) represent past sculptures of contemporary art.

    The National Palace Museum of Korea is located south of Heungnyemun Gate, and the National Folk Museum is located on the eastern side within Hyangwonjeong.

    Surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine, Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. The name Bukchon, which literally translates to "northern village," came about as the neighborhood lies north of two significant Seoul landmarks, Cheonggyecheon Stream and Jongno. Today, many of these hanoks operate as cultural centers, guesthouses, restaurants and tea houses, providing visitors with an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse themselves in traditional Korean culture.

The shops in Insa-dong are very popular among all age groups, because each one is unique.

    Every Saturday from 14:00 to 22:00 and Sunday from 10:00 to 22:00, the main street is blocked off from traffic and it becomes a cultural space.

Insa-dong is especially popular among international tourists. This is where they can experience and see traditional Korean culture firsthand, and also purchase pieces of fine art. On the street you can eat Korean taffy and traditional pajeon (green onion pancake), and lose yourself in all the joyous festivities of the street.
