There are lots of world cultural heritage places in Korea. During this morning tour, we'll lead you on a historical journey through Seoul.

The tour starts from hotel pick-up. Head off to the Buckchon Cultural Center, which will provide you with information about the Bukchon Hanok Village. The center shows exhibits and films relating to the history of Bukchon. It is a perfect starting point, which will let you experience Bukchon and its authentically Korean atmosphere.

Next to Buckchon, visit traditional houses called "hanok" dating back to the Joseon Dynasty. The name Bukchon, which literally translates to "northern village", refers to the area being located north of Cheonggyecheon, a Korean landmark.

You will then head to the Jongmyo Royal Shrine, built by Lee Seong Gye circa 1335-1408, the first king and founding father of the Joseon Dynasty. It was a primary place of worship for kings throughout the Joseon Dynasty and is a UNESCO-protected heritage. (This site is replaced Insadong on Tuesdays)

Afterward, you will visit the Changdeokgung Palace, which name means "to brighten virtue", and represents Korea's best-preserved palace, now UNESCO-protected (replaced with Gyeongbokgung Palace on Mondays).

The Story of King Sejong Exhibition Hall comprises of 9 different sections with a total area of 3,200 square meters. Throughout the museum are a variety of displays detailing Sejong’s invention of Hangeul, and his scientific, artistic, military, and political contributions.

The morning tour ends at Myeongdong where you can shop or have lunch.
