Gyeongbokgung Palace, a gem from the Joseon Dynasty, is a masterpiece of traditional Korean architecture and culture. It is normally open to the public from 9:00AM to 5:00PM. However, in this exclusive opportunity, I am excited to announce that you can explore the palace grounds during the tranquil hours of the night.

Limited Availability Alert for Gyoengbok Gung Night Tour

This considerate approach is offered only to foreign travelers to ensure that they get a chance to experience this special tour, even if online booking presents some challenges.

The Gyeongbokgung Palace Night Tour unfolds for a brief period each year, and with a limited daily capacity, its popularity often poses a challenge even for locals to secure tickets. What sets this experience apart is not only the exclusivity but also the chance to witness the palace’s allure under the cover of night. While Gyeongbokgung Palace usually graces visitors with its splendor during daylight hours, this event unveils a whole new dimension of its charm. As you plan your journey, I urge you not to let this opportunity slip through your fingers – mark your calendars, add it to your travel itinerary and be ready to have an unforgettable experience.
