How to get to Gwanghwamun Square

First Korea Spot, Gwanghwamun Square (광화문광장) also known as Gwanghwamun Plaza, yey!

It is located at Sejongno, Jongno-gu in Seoul, South Korea.

DIRECTIONS by Seoul Metro

Grab a copy of the Seoul Metro Map (it will be handy when you are out and about in Korea) as the subway is one of the main transportation used.

  1. Make sure you take Line 5 (Purple Line) of the Seoul Metro.  Check the right direction headed to Gwanghwamun Station (광화문 역).
  2. Get off at Gwanghwamun Station (광화문 역) and follow the sign to Exit 9.  Signs are usually located on higher area for visibility and also arrows pointing to exit are drawn on the walls, ceilings and even on the ground (sometimes with footprints images painted on the floor).
  3. You will see an exit sign with Gwanghwamun Plaza/Square (광화문광장).  Follow the signs and you will not get lost for sure.

There are other ways on how to reach the plaza but this is the closes way that we have tried.

Just a few steps away is the Gyeongbokgung Palace which is located right at the end of the plaza.  Be sure to visit it too while you are in the vicinity.
