Description

Touching down at the ultramodern Incheon International Airport places us at the heart of Korea which is known as the Land of Morning Calm. After clearing immigration and customs, your gracious tour guide will meet you and take you to Seoul for city tour.

Pass by Gwanghwamun Plaza, a new landmark of Seoul, on your way to visit Gyeongbok palace and see its magnificent gates, graceful architecture and lovely gardens, all directly inherited from the Joseon Dynasty. The Gyeongbok Palace is a particularly charming tourist spot in Seoul that represents a colorful and turbulent side of the capital's 500-year history.

A visit to the excellent facilities of the National Folklore Museum which showcases the lifestyle of the Korean people from the prehistoric age to the Joseon Dynasty, will help familiarize the visitors with the cultural wealth of this friendly and picturesque nation.

Go on to Jogyesa, the head temple of Jogyejong, the principal sect of Buddhism in Korea. Near the temple is Insa-dong known as the center of traditional Korean art and antiques. Clustered along the main street and alleys are numerous shops that deal in antiques, oriental art supplies, and modern Korean art of all types and styles. A number of galleries in the area also have exhibitions of works by modern artists. You will find some souvenirs or simply wander and browse at leisure.

A couple of blocks away from the antique alley is Cheonggyecheon, a lively commercial district filled with huge markets, arcades and commercial facilities. Cheonggyecheon, with its 22 lovely bridges, also provides a great venue for a walking tour, a variety of cultural events and performances staged by amateurs and street artists and shopping as well.

Finally, visit the Dongdaemun Market Market, which originally opened in 1414 as a government market, and discover the unique cornucopia of clothing, jewelry, appliances, dishes, folk arts, food and oriental medicine. It is widely acknowledged as one of the country's best tourist attractions.

Return transportation to the airport, and soon thereafter you will be on the plane taking you back home.
