A trip to Seoul would be incomplete without a visit to its UNESCO site, South Korea. One might be slightly disappointed if he or she just visited Forbidden City in Beijing. In fact, I was rather surprised by how repetitive the Korean palace roof design can get afterwhile. Admittedly, the Korean palace could look rather simple at first glance, but this is precisely where its beauty lies. The very fact that Korea was a vassal state of ancient China explains why the Korean palace cannot overpower that of its ‘master’.
