Feedback:

  • My comment to the survey was that they could just do this as one place - focus on the palace so that people will have more time since it's really kinda of a rush.
  • You will be missing the secret garden in the palace so one person actually stayed and returned on his own
  • Palace was not too big and not too small so can easily be covered. Secret garden has a time schedule so you need to book and pay separately.  There are only Tours for the garden.
  • Insa-dong was interesting with shops, antiques, arts, and cafes.  Would have love to sit down in a cafe or tea house for a bit more time.
