SEOUL | Deouksugung Thereabout

There are a number of palaces within "walking distances" in Seoul, and I guess it is true, you see one, you see it all.

As the palaces are built more or less about the same structures, be it in design and colour, so it is adequate to visit just one palace, unless you are really into history and have so much time in your hand, then visit all of them.

But I would recommend to visit the largest palace in Seoul which is the Gyeongbukgong Palace.

Anyhow, since I have visited the Gyeongbukgong Palace, so this time around, I just wander around the Deouksugung Palace, or also know as Deoksu Palace, is one of the five major palaces in Seoul.

Deouksugung Palace means Palace of Virtuous Longevity, located just across the road of Seoul City Hall.

As the time was limited, so I just venture outside of the palace.

A passer-by seen concentrating at the writing placed around the wall of the palace.

Just few of the "plaques" placed within the palace walls, not really sure what it says thou.
