Gyeongbokgung Palace

Getting a bit carried away with the photos today, but it is so brilliant that I can't help myself.
Gyeongbokgung is another palace, but this time with theatrically dressed guards at the gate. Every hour they change, and it is an interesting performance involving flag bearers, drummers and a guy with a tiny bell, who follows the captain around dinging it carefully.
We spent a couple of hours as part of a tour group following our guide, (pic 4), as she told us loads of facts and appeared to float around like a hovercraft in her floor length costume.
