Every day of the week, barring Mondays, a traditional changing of the guards ceremony takes place in front of Daehanmun Gate at Deoksugung Palace, a palace of the Joseon Dynasty located in Seoul’s Jung-gu.
As you take in the fascinating progression of the changing of the guard, visit the hanbok rental booth in front of the main gate, where you can try on traditional guard uniforms and other hanbok for free. Just sign your name on the list and wait your turn, then the staff at the booth will help you try on the item of your choice. Given the opportunity to both witness the changing of the guard ceremony and pretend you’re a guard as well, it’s a popular attraction among foreign visitors.
