South Korea -> SEOUL -> Changdeokgung Palace
Changdeokgung Palace    SEOUL, Seoul Municipality

The most well preserved of the five royal palaces in Seoul, Changdeokgung was also the main palace of many Joseon kings. The royal family moved into this palace in 1907, and part of it, Nakseongjae, served as the residence for some of the surviving members until 2005 when the last descendent in Korea passed away. The palace is well known for its Huwon (or Biwon, “ Secret Garden”) gardens. Huwon is exquisitely beautiful and contains ponds, pavilions, and ancient trees. Changdeokgung is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
