The most well-preserved of the five palaces of the Joseon Dynasty, the Changdeok-gung compound has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Originally serving as an auxiliary palace, since the reign of Songjon (1470 - 1494) it became the preferred residence for Korean royalty.

Jongmyo Royal Shrine
The Jongmyo Royal Shrine is a place where memorial services are performed for deceased kings, a rite central to traditional Korean culture. Considered an important ceremony for the nation itself, it guarantees both order and the successful ruling of the nation.

Featuring authentically-decorated tea houses serving a vast array of traditional teas, high-end antique galleries, and innovative restaurants, Insa-dong is a favorite stop for tourists in Seoul. Shop for a unique souvenir or sample exotic tea blends within a traditional ambience.
