After 3 action packed days in Seoul, Sunday would be the day where the Australian bloggers would part from their new found friends. And what better way to end a visit to the magnificent city of Seoul than to one of its most regal locations, the Gyeonbok Palace.
About Gyeonbok Palace:
Built at the beginning of the Chosun Dynasty when the Yi Dynasty moved the capital to Seoul, this palace remained the main seat of power for Korea kings throughout much of the time to the present. Gyeongbok means Shining Happiness. The main gate (Kwanghwa-mun) separates Gyeongbok Palace from one of the busiest areas of Seoul. Gyeongbok Palace was built as the primary palace of the Chosun Kingdom by its founder, King Taejo in 1395, the fourth year of his reign. (Ref: LifeInKorea Website)
By this point we had been all BimBimBapped out and missing our loved ones and family back home. But we rallied up our remaining energy reserves and jumped on the tour bus to be amazed by another bit of Korean history.
Here are the last batch of photos:
Again I would like to thank LG Electronics for giving me the chance to attend the 2010 Seoul LG Blogger Forum. Special thanks especially to Mr.Chang Moon and Kelly Choi for organising the trip and for the fantastic hospitality.
