The Cultural Heritage Administration of Korea and the Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation have introduced the exclusive “K-Royal Palaces PASS” during the upcoming “2024 K-Royal Culture Festival.” This pass provides unlimited access to Seoul’s five royal palaces: Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, Deoksugung Palace, Changgyeonggung Palace, and Gyeonghuigung Palace. Scheduled to occur from April 27 to May 5, the festival celebrates its tenth year and is a significant cultural event in Korea, showcasing the historical significance of the iconic palaces and Jongmyo Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This year’s festival promises a deep dive into Korea’s rich cultural heritage and traditions.

In addition to unlimited palace entry, PASS holders can enjoy exclusive benefits such as a 10% discount on cultural products and refreshments at the “Sarang” café, as well as a 10% discount on the menu at Korea House. PASS holders are also entitled to a 30% discount on the musical “The Tribe” at the Sejong Center.

To commemorate the festival’s milestone anniversary, all PASS purchasers will receive a KRW 3,000 (USD 2.3) credit. Passes can be collected at Incheon International Airport or festival information booths located at each palace, with on-site sales available for any remaining passes post the online sale period.
