Incentive groups or corporate travellers heading to South Korea can now enjoy evening admission to Seoul’s Changgyeonggung Palace.
Previously, visitors were only allowed to enter the grounds during a special evening admission.
The new operating hours for the palace will be 09.00 to 21.00 from Tuesdays to Sundays. The last admission will be at 20.00.
The admission for foreigners will be the same as daytime fee of 1,000 won (US$0.90). For children and youngsters between the ages of seven to 18, the admission fee is 500 won. For children under six, seniors over 65 years old or visitors wearing the hanbok, admission will be free.
The first 200 visitors starting from 17.30 each day can also rent a cheongsachorong (traditional lantern) for free. Various cultural events will also be held on the palace grounds.
