/ Day 5 /
5th day continues with more walks inside the grounds of Gyeongbok Palace. At the far end of the compound are more clustered quarters, kind of like (very) small villages. From this point, you can actually see the blue roof of Cheongwadae, Korea's version of the White House. And from here on, you'd see lots and lots of green, a full view of a mountain, a pond and a pavilion; and feel like you are in a countryside and detached from the buzzing city that is Seoul. It's really amazing to find a space like this in a much urbanized metropolis. Truly awesome.
