Changgyeonggung Palace is one of the least visited of Seoul’s royal palaces, so there are less people and more peace. The Palace originally served as the residential quarters for the Joseon Queen and the king’s concubines, and the queen’s quarters was designed with intricate details. It’s particularly beautiful when they hold night viewings which is usually held twice a year. Come here for the less-traveled and seen of the royal palaces in Seoul.
