Gyeongbok Palace opens for nighttime viewing next month


SEOUL, 26 April (BelTA -Yonhap) - Nighttime tours of Gyeongbok Palace will begin next month, allowing visitors to feel the serene night mood of the old palace nestled in downtown Seoul, organizers said.

The Cultural Heritage Administration (CHA) said it will open its annual spring night tours of the palace from May 8 to June 2.

Every spring and autumn, the main royal palace of the Joseon era (1392-1910) opens its gates at night, when it is usually closed to the public, for a limited time, allowing visitors to enjoy the beauty of the illuminated palace under the moonlight. Last year's programs attracted some 274,000 visitors, according to the CHA.
