AWESOME VIEW AT SECRET GARDEN, CHANGDEOKGUNG PALACE

I was doing some cleaning up from my desktop and try my best to re arrange my travel photos.
When it came to my Seoul Trip on Nov 2012, photos...ah...can't help it..to share this fabulous photos at Secret Garden, Changdeokgung Palace, South Korea.

How to go to Changdeokgung Palace?


Subway
Jongno 3(sam)-ga (Subway Line 1, 3 or 5), Exit 6 then you just walk straight along Donhwamun-ro Street for 10 minutes.

I stayed near Jongno 3 (sam) ga area...so just walk and walk and walk until my leg cramped...kekekeke.
When you go traveling, all you need..... is the needs of curiosity and exploration attitude!

This is the rear garden near Changdeokgung Palace and was constructed by King Taejong and this is the place for resting place of the royal family members. Damn! this remind me of that Drama, Faith and Rooftop Prince and many more Goryeo , historical dramas.

This garden was formerly called 'Bukwon' and 'Geumwon but then was renamed as 'Biwon' after the King Kojong came into power. 
This garden was kept natural as possible and was touched by human hands only when it is absolutely necessary. There are many pavillions , ponds , fountains in this beautiful garden.
The best thing ,I was there during the most beautiful time....isn't this awesome!!!!

Opppsss!!!! you can't enter this Secret Garden alone or by yourself .
It must be through guided tour. 
The stubborn side of me , don't wait for foreigners tour. I joined the Korean speaking tour. 
The result????
I feel so smart...enter this garden with those student wearing Hanbok and I got this awesome feel in historical drama with beautiful background. The weather was perfect too!

pssssttt! I join the Korean language guided tour by accident. I was too mesmerized with all those beautiful colors of 'Hanbok'! By the time I realize I was at the wrong timing tour...there was no turning back! WTH!

My eyes went twinkling like 'cupid' in love watching all those 'Hanbok girls'. I am a girl too...imagine if I am a man. WTH! Guys! what will you do if you were me? Turn back or follow along?

I cannot simply wondering around this place because one may get lost. The tour guide also very strict. So no escape!

Tour guide went on &%$#@!*&^*$#$^&* . Me? 'Otteoke???? hahahaha..I don't know what she told those people. Must be the significant story about this place. My wild guest! Me read and read and enjoy the view. Lucky got some brochure in my hand. At least I read the history before I came too. 

For the person who loves history so much....
Serious, the feeling was so....really can't describe this in words!!!!
Every step every breathe like bringing back the history to real.
chewwwwaaahhh! I am so sentimental mode now. So emo! looking at all these again.

Enjoy this beautiful view all....I hope if I manage to survive until 60 years old and browse through my blog again....I can recall...how awesome of me to experience this view with my own eyes and was there physically.
