The Joseon Kings ruled in five palaces near central Seoul.
They're all a stone throw's away from one another, and in this video, I take you on a route where you can see all five in a single outing.

Total walking time was just under an hour for the 6.33km, meaning that if you arrive at the starting point at 9am, it will be possible, not only to walk the route, but visit all five palaces in a single day.

Rather than pay individual admission, pick up the Integrated ticket and save a lot of money.
