Time Out says

Light spills into the courtyard of Gyeongbokgung Palace, and despite the shadows of boggling tourists,you are reminded of the grandeur of the place. Known as the 'Northern Palace', Gyeongbokgung is the largest and most well known of the five palaces. Although you run the risk of lacking originality with a visit to such a common destination, one mustn't forget that the 1395 edifice is also one of the most representative of the Joseon Dynasty. Especially on a clear blue day, looking at the sky reflected around Gyeonghoeru Pavilion, you can be reminded of why certain popular destinations remain as such.
