Get a glimpse into Korean tradition by watching the Deoksugung Palace guard-changing ceremony! This ceremony is a year-round tradition similar to the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace and offers a rare opportunity to experience royal culture. The royal gate is opened and closed at pre-determined times, and the gatekeepers in charge of guard duty hold a shift changing ceremony three times a day. The Royal Guard-Changing Ceremony is a highly recommended event for tourists. Take photos of the guards wearing tradional and colorful Korean garb with the stunning background of Deoksugung Palace!
