[Korea] 2014 Changdeokgung Moonlight Tour starts April

The Moonlight Tour at Changdeokgung Palace is back this year with tours scheduled from April to June and from September to November. Moreover, there will be separate tour dates scheduled for foreign visitors only.

This tour is a special opportunity for visitors to enjoy the beauty of the treasured Changdeokgung Palace and Huwon by strolling around the palace under the glow of the full moon while enjoying traditional performances and traditional treats. Changdeokgung Palace is a UNESCO site and a palace loved the most by kings of the Joseon Dynasty.

Since visitors are normally not allowed to enter the palace in the evening, the Moonlight Tour is a rare opportunity to experience the palace’s evening atmosphere and its quaint beauty. The tour takes about two hours to complete and admission is 30,000 won per person. Tickets are available online on a first-come, first-served basis.

Other attractions near Changdeokgung Palace and Huwon include Changgyeonggung Palace, Jongmyo Shrine, Daehangno (University Street) and Gwangjang Market.
