  1. Wow! Your photos are gorgeous! The Fortress Wall and Hanok Village look so pretty. I would love to visit South Korea. I think it had that great balance between super modern and traditional.

    1. Indeed. The Korean embrace the new but they don’t neglect the old. Instead they are doing a great job in promoting their own tradition to the whole world. I was surprise by the amount of tourist wearing a hanbok to the palace 🙂

  2. Lovely photos, Len! When I went to Gyeongbokgung it was cloudy. There were some short intervals of sun, but the clouds were just too thick, which made the day even colder. Did you visit the other palaces as well?

    1. Unfortunately no 🙁 I was travelling with my parents. At the retired age, they don’t like walking too much and one palace was enough. I intended to visit the garden in Changdeokgung, but they were closed for winter.

  3. Cô luôn luôn thích bài cháu viết, nhưng những tấm ảnh cháu chụp thì cô lại thích hơn bài viết gấp mấy lần. Cám ơn cháu đã cống hiến cho người đọc, người xem rất nhiều bài hay, ảnh đẹp và những miền đất xa lạ người đọc chưa hề đặt chân đến. Thật tuyệt vời.

  4. Fantastic blog post, Len!
    I’ve always been fascinated by the juxtaposition of old and new. Part of why I enjoyed visited and have been fascinated every since by Japan so much is because how well they do modern with traditional, and it seems like South Korea is similar. The autumn colors are phenomenal! So are the colors of the intricate details.The photos of Forbidden City from Beijing that I’ve seen online always seem to be full of tourists, but your photos make it look that it would be a peaceful experience exploring Gyeongbokgung. Hanok village looks so charming too! I must absolutely visit South Korea one day. What make countries special and appealing to visit are how well they’ve preserved their ancient and cultural heritages.

    1. I am glad that you like the post, Pooja! 🙂 Actually, the palace was full of tourists during my visit. But most of them went straight to the audience chamber. The smaller buildings such as Donggung was left untouch.

  5. There looks like there is so much to see there! The architecture is as colourful as those trees on the wall segment at Namsan. Really stunning Autumn shades.

    1. South Korea is a beautiful country. Very modern yet still retain some yesteryear charms. Language barrier does exist, but it’s not much a problem in big cities like Seoul or Busan.
