There's an entrance to go and explore the full vicinity of the palace. A ticket costs W3,000 (Php. 113) for adults and since there were more than 10 of us in the group, our tickets were discounted costing only W2,400 (Php. 90) each. Kids rate is half of the adult ticket rate. There are also guided tours available. Silly us, we only knew about this on our way out.
I highly recommend that you spend at least half a day enriching yourself with Korea's colorful history by visiting the Gyeongbokgung Palace.
