That’s a cool shot Matt! I always tell people who visit Korea to check out Gyeongbokgung Palace. It’s great value considering it costs next to nothing for a ticket.

how do you chase after villains dressed that way..? hmm…

I have seen guard changing twice but still i feel like watching it one more time.
Matt, at what time did you went there? it seems that there were very few tourists when you visited.

Nice pic!
I miss Seoul… I’m excited for autumn… Can’t wait to re-visit my favorite city in Asia <3

Very colourful dress wear…

What fantastic colourful outfits! I think the london and Seoul royal guards should swap for a week, offering no explaination to anybody, ever, just to see what would happen!

Lol, I second the idea of getting the Korean guaards to swap places with them London ones! I visited the palace while I was in Seoul, staying at Fraser Suites for a couple of nights. I absolutely loved the apartment, great service and the pool was heavenly. Personally, I think Gyeongbokgung is probably the most scenic palace in Seoul. Loved it!
