A few times a year, Changdeokgung Palace, my favorite of Seoul’s five palaces, is open for moonlight tours. I made sure to buy tickets as soon as they were available, and was delighted to see these beautiful buildings lit up at night!
The Han River slices through Seoul. I live on the southern side, but travel north of the Han almost daily. Seoul has done a great job in featuring the Han as part of it’s city. The banks are lined with parks, trails, and restaurants.
The fish market has long been on my list of things to do in Seoul. I’m a sucker for markets, and this is one of the most famous in Seoul. It is used by thousands of Koreans supplying their restaurants and homes with fresh food. There’s just one problem; I don’t like fish.
