Seoul is an evolving city, growing in world-stature yet still steeped in the past. Discover both the modern, urban delights and historic traces of this intriguing city on this Seoul city tour.
Meet your knowledgeable local guide and set off for the charming Bukchon Hanok village area. This residential area dates back to the Joseon Dynasty and possesses countless hanoks (traditional Korean houses) and other historic sites. Nowadays it's considered one of the leading (and most loved) cultural places in Seoul. It's also a favourite meeting place for Seoul’s youth (spotting young couples on dates in hanok-style restaurants isn't hard here).
After a brief break, stroll to Changdeokgung Palace, one of Seoul's UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites. This royal palace is famous for its unique, traditional Korean-style architecture and design, which you will learn all about on this part of the Seoul tour.
Walk along Jongmyo (Royal Shrine) and meet local people at Kwang Jang Market, one of Seoul's best and most traditional markets. It's absolutely huge, and you can easily explore it for hours and hours, which is why our Seoul city tour will end here and set you free into the market to wander at your heart's content.
Your friendly local guide will be happy to offer some advice on where to head next, whether you're staying in the market or heading back out in Seoul.
