Gwanghwamun: a Landmark and symbol of Seoul’s long history
Gwanghwamun is one of our favorite spots in Seoul because it provides great mountain views, people watching and long stretches of walking. It is central to so many spots (the Palaces, Insadong, Cheonggyecheon Stream, CineCube (our favorite indie movie theatre in Seoul) & Line 5 (purple).
A bunch of countries’ embassies can be found in the area of Gwanghwamun, as well. Plus, we love the King Sejong Statue. And in the summer there are in-ground fountains that offer must-needed relief from the city’s heat.
