Breakfast at Holly’s coffee just around the corner of our hotel before the day’s tour of Seoul.
Train to Anguk station and a walk to the UNESCO site of Changdeokgung Palace, huge and grand, fit for royalties.
Huge place, took a while to walk around the compound and before we exited the palace and have lunch in some random Korean store.
Then another store to have a sweet fish pastry to desert.
Another palace visit, by walking there. Gyeongbokgung palace, similar size but more modern architecture.
After we completed the exploration within the palace compounds, we returned to the entrance where the changing of guards took place.
The last attraction of the day was to visit a prison, Seodaemun Prison, taking a one stop from Anguk to Dongnimmun station, and a short walk to the entrance. A much smaller compound compared to the palaces and manageable to complete exploring within an hour.
Then it was shopping at night, got off at Dongdaemun station, there was a majestic gate called Heunginjimun near the station.
A mixture of malls from trendy fashion at a costlier price at Doota mall and Maxtyle mall to the more affordable market like stores Pyoung Hwa clothing market.
