Regal visions under the moonlight

UNESCO World Heritage Site Changdeokgung Palace in Seoul will run its popular Moonlight Tours from April 21 to June 12, a 100-minute presentation that invites participants to stroll through the ancient grounds and appreciate both the tranquility and various landmark architecture.

Changdeokgung Palace is said to be the most traditional and authentic of Seoul’s five palaces, and the walking tour will call at iconic spots such as Geumcheongyo Bridge and Jinseonmun Gate, Buyongji Pond and Aeryeonjeong Pavilion. These structures will be lit up in the dark.

Participants in the Moonlight Tours can also enjoy traditional Korean performances in various locations.

Tickets are priced at 30,000 won (US$24.40)
