Description

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 tour.

Meet a knowledgeable local guide and head to 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 favorite 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 about during your visit.

Next, pay a visit to the Tteok Museum - a museum dedicated to preserving traditional Korean cuisine, cooking methods and culture. Korean cuisine is a delicious, welcome surprise to most visitors, so be sure to learn as much as you can while here, walk along Jongmyo (Royal Shrine) and meet local people at Kwang jang Market.

This tour ends with Kwang jang Market, so take time to further explore Seoul independently or return to your favorite sights for another look. If unsure, just ask your friendly local guide for some advice on where to head next!
