Our latest video comes to your from Linda who blogs at Linda Goes East. The last time we saw her, she was in the German Alps. Since then she had moved back to South Korea. She shares her amazing day exploring everything arts and culture in Seoul. Lucky for us there was so many neat things happening, including a traditional festival with singers, musicians and modern break dancers. Linda also visited the Gyeongbokgung Palace, the main palace in Seoul. Check out the video below!
Gyeongbokgung Palace is the largest of five palaces built by the Joseon dynasty. It was built in 1395 and served as the home of Kings of the Joseon dynasty, the Kings’ households, as well as the government of Joseon. In 1989, the South Korean government started a 40-year initiative to rebuild the hundreds of structures that were destroyed by the colonial government of the Empire of Japan, during the period of occupied Colonial Korea. By the end of 2009, it was estimated that approximately 40 percent of the structures that were standing before the Japanese occupation of Korea were restored or reconstructed.
With a rich history, new amazing features to the city and lots of arts and culture to be seen we think Seoul South Korea is an amazing destination!
Thanks so much Linda, what a lovely day in Seoul South Korea!
