Changdeokgung is another cultural and historical gem amid Seoul’s urban sprawl. King Taejong had this complex built as a secondary home. When the Japanese invaded, the royal family moved to this palace. Out of the palaces on this list, Changdeokgung is the only one on UNESCO’s heritage list. The complex blends perfectly with its natural surroundings, giving it a certain kind of beauty and elegance. Walk around to see the gardens and halls that display Korean creativity.
