Gwanghwamun

Highly recommended
Gwanghwamun is the historical, political and emblematic capital of Seoul. Avenue Jongno, the oldest shopping street that runs from the east and the century-old Dongdaemun Gate, owes its name to the city's belfry, Boshingak. The district is famous for the countless royal edifices that line its streets, such as Changdeokgung palace and Jongmyo shrine. Many other curiosities await the visitor and the lesser known palaces will doubtless appeal for their peaceful, less touristy atmosphere.
