Traditional wear at Gyeongbok Palace in Seoul
It's become very popular to enter the gardens of Seoul's imperial palaces while wearing "hanbok," or the traditional dress of South Korea. If you're properly attired, admission is free and you have the privilege of enjoying the magnificent scenery of the country in an oasis of natural beauty within a bustling city.
