What was life like for royalty during the Joseon Dynasty? You can experience it for yourself by visiting the numerous palaces located right in the heart of Seoul. Seoul's five major palaces are Gyeongbokgung Palace(경복궁), Gyeonghuigung Palace(경희궁), Changdeokgung Palace(창덕궁), Changgyeonggung Palace(창경궁), and Deoksugung Palace(덕수궁). The admission fees are affordably priced, usually just a few dollars, and visitors can tour around the grounds, see reenactments of historical royal ceremonies, dress up in royal costume, and even challenge themselves to a Taekwondo class. Since each palace offers something different, be sure to check in advance to see what programs and reenactments are offered.
