2014 Oct: South Korea: Doeksugung Palace Night Lights

During spring and autumn, 2 grand palaces in Seoul offers special open night tickets, where tourists and locals can get inside until late night.

Since the website is limited to korean language, getting tickets is just so hard.  Even I tried calling the number, they told me they will call me back with someone who speaks in English, but I have not received any.  From Facebook, I knew that tickets are already sold out after its availability just within 3 hours.

But that experience did not stop me from looking around.  As an alternative, we have visited: 

Deoksugung Palace (덕수궁)
Address: 99, Sejong-daero, Jung-gu, Seoul  서울 중구 세종대로 99
Direction: Get off at City Hall Station (Seoul Subway Line 1 – Exit 2 / Seoul Subway Line 2 – Exit 12, turn left at the exit and walk straight for 30 meters)
