Changing of the Guard

Seoul, like Buckingham Palace in London, has a Changing of the Guard ceremony. Seoul's Changing of the Guard takes place at Gyeongbok-gung Palace.

Changing of the Guard

The Changing of the Guard ceremony takes place on the hour from 10.00-16.00 outside the main entrance with the soldiers wearing traditional uniforms. Look out for the feathers in the guard's helmets and the beautiful beads of their chin straps from their wicker helmets.
