The Sights of West Seoul
If youre ever on the west side of Seoul, there are some great historical sights to see. They tend not to get as much attention as the famous cultural landmarks of the city, but they are worth seeing. In fact, the three that Jo and I visited with friends on Sunday are all within a few blocks of one another can are easily accessible by both bus and metro.
The first place we visited was Dongnimmun (동님문) Gate. It serves as a marker for the spot where Korean and Chinese offices met when Korea was part of China. Its also the gateway for Independence Park.
The park has several memorials dedicated to those who helped spur Koreas independence from China during the Qing Dynasty under King Gojong. The place must really look fantastic in the summer, since there are several large fountains and pools that are now all dried up. One of the places where Id really like to take a longer look is Mohwagwan (모화관) which is now named Independence Hall. Information states that there are memorial tablets for many martyrs housed in the basement.
Our second stop that day was Seodaemun Prison (서대문). Its a frightening structure that served as a repository for those interned by the Japanese. It was home to some gruesome instances of torture.
It was used up through the end of World War II. Things have changed a little since I was there last year. Most notably, the Prison History Hall has been closed and many of the exhibits have been moved to one of the prison wings.
In some ways this is good, as it allows visitors to spend more time in the actual prison but a lot of the effects that were in the hall are now gone. For example, in the scene above, there used to be more audio and movement from the mannequins. It still drives home the point at how horrific the Japanese were during this time, but I found the prior displays better. The other good great thing about the new displays, is that now you can take photos and video, where you couldnt before.
Our last stop was Gyeonghuigung and the Seoul history Museum. Heres what the Wiki entry says about it:
It was one of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty.
In the latter Joseon period, Gyeonghuigung served as the secondary palace for the king, and as it was situated on the west side of Seoul, it was also called Seogwol (a palace of the west). The Secondary palace is usually the palace where the King moves to in times of emergency.
From King Injo to King Cheoljong, about ten kings of Joseon dynasty stayed here at Gyeonghuigung. This palace was built using the slanted geography of the surrounding mountain, has traditional beauty in its architecture and a lot of historical significance. For a time, it was of a considerable size, even to the point of having an arched bridge connecting it to Deoksugung palace. For the kings royal audience, there were the Sungjeongjeon and Jajeongjeon buildings, and for sleeping, Yungbokjeon and Hoesangjeon buildings.
The Japanese completely destroyed Gyeonghuigung during the Japanese occupation period in order to build a school for Japanese citizens. Reconstruction started in the 1990s as part of the South Korean governments initiative to rebuild the Five Grand Palaces heavily destroyed by the Japanese. However, due to urban growth and decades of neglect, the government was only able to reconstruct around 33% of the former Palace.

Damyang - Bamboo Park, South Korea
This is a video of my trip to South Korea I did in August 2012. Damyang County (Damyang-gun) is an county in Jeollanam-do. Bamboo goods and strawberries are well-known local products of this highly touristic area. Damyang (담양) is one of the northernmost places where bamboo can be found on the Korean peninsula, and its bamboo forests are well-known among Koreans. Many touristic attractions have been created to leverage on that reputation: a Bamboo Park (Daenamugol, you can see in this video), a Bamboo Museum and a Bamboo Festival.
