Unlike the day we arrived when we were rained out, yesterday and today's weather was simply perfect for sight seeing. Blue skies and light wind made it very pleasant to walk around the city.
Deoksugung Palace was the first palace we visited. It's an ancient palace tucked in the middle of modern Seoul. We saw three palaces yesterday; sure was a blast to the past.
Ever dreamed of living in a palace?
And today we went to at least 2 street markets. We also went up the Namsan area earlier this morning.
Namsan (or "South Mountain") is a 262-meter peak in the Jung-gu district of south central Seoul, South Korea. Although known as Mount Mongmyeok in the past, it is now commonly referred to as Namsan. It offers some hiking, recreation and views of downtown Seoul's skyline.
The Seoul Tower located at the top of Namsan is one of the symbols of Seoul.
