Mr. Albert believes that if you can travel the speed of light, you can travel through time. That sounds close to impossible for the technology today. The best record in the history of MANkind is to travel the speed of sound by SR-71 Blackbird (It is a jet and not a bird).
What if I tell you I can bring you back to 17th century when Joseon Dynasty was founded? Not literally of course, or I will be the first in the history of MANkind to have time machine (Apple’s Time Machine is not counted).
I am not a super genius who cans teleport but just a simple MAN that lucky enough to be in Ghangdeokgung Palace, a place that first constructed in 1405, a place that survived multiple invasions and a place that listed as UNESCO World Heritage.
Phew.. AND it is not free though. 3000 Won is the price you need to pay for the ticket to enter this Palace. I will not use money to rank this place as this is the only Palace that is in harmony with its natural surrounding and an example of traditional architecture and garden design.
If you have been to Forbidden City in Beijing, this palace is not as grand as that. That is how the Korean Kingdom is all about, a humble kingdom. If you are an assassin, you need quiet a good stamina to sneak to main hall.
The assembly area is quite spacious to accommodate for officers with various ranks. I know many will die to be the first rank officers but if I get to choose, I would rather be a normal civilian. Why? At least I get an aircond room rather than standing under hot sun.
Map can get you to the desire destination. Dumb dumb as well. In this palace, the tourist map is a must. Luckily all the rooms are closed else I will definitely mousing around the whole palace.
If you pay 3000 Won to get enter the palace, what will you get if you pay an additional of 5000 Won? You just earned a passage to secret garden. Secret? Is it like if I tell you I have to kill you kind of thingy?
Not that secret. The secret here means only the royal blood get to enter the garden. What is so secret about this garden? The garden is actually a forest that was converted to a harmonize garden with best elements of feng shui.
Beside nice sceneries and calm resting place for emperors, this palace is also a survival place for Chinese Juniper which is believed to be 750 years old, 12 meters height and 5.9 meters in circumference.
Power + Wealth + Girls are what everyMAN want but too bad the emperor no longer exist in the modern world. Else, maybe TikkoSS can seek some emperor’s advices to be a “better” MAN
