The stunning view of The Gyeonghoeru at the magnificent Gyeongbokgung Palace, is one of my favourite spots in Seoul, South Korea, to have a coffee and relax. The backdrop of the Gyeonghoeru, A Royal Palace, overshadows a calm lake, with the mountains in full view in the background. With a small café conveniently located at the edge of the lake, there is no better time to take a rest amongst the beautiful Korean feature.

First constructed in 1412, The Gyeonghoeru has had to survive a tough time during the Japanese invasion, with ultimately destroyed and burnt day only for the resent building to be rebuilt in 1867.

If in Seoul, do yourself a favour and get down to Gyeongbokgung Palace and see and the Gyeonghoeru, a fine part of Korean history for yourself. Don’t forget your camera, oh and a few dollars for coffee.
