Experience a unique blend of old and new on this urban adventure that takes in an interactive museum exhibit, two of the city's five royal palaces, the changing of the guards ceremony, and the picturesque features of central Seoul's historic sites. As one of Asia's up-and-coming cities, Seoul is an interesting city full of delights, yet still remains off the mass tourism radar.

Start the day in the heart of Seoul at Gwanghwamun Gate and walk along to the Seoul Museum of History for a unique interactive exhibition of local history at the Seoul City Panoramic Theatre. From there, continue into Gyeonghuigung Palace, one of the five royal palaces in Seoul.

Next, head to Daehamun for the royal changing of the guards ceremony. Then after a brief stop at Seoul City Hall, stroll over to Cheonggyecheon Plaza with its picturesque stream, historic stone bridges, and uniquely decorated walls. Then head out for a walk through Jongno, one of central Seoul's oldest areas.

Continue on with a walk to the Bosingak Bell Pavilion, the belfry for a 3.18-meter tall bronze bell from the early Joseon period. If you're lucky, you might catch the bell's mighty toll at noon!

At the end of the tour, feel free to continue exploring Seoul. We highly recommend taking the opportunity to feast on some tasty Korean cuisine. Korean food is one of the world's best kept secrets so don't miss the chance to try some. Your guide will let you know the best place to try local delicacies like Bibimbap or Jeon, and will be able to give you recommendations for where to continue your Seoul adventure; like the nearby Insa-dong flea market and Jogyesa Temple.
