What To Expect
As the sun sets and the night falls, darken, Seoul transforms into a vibrant visual feast, and thousands of lights with red, pink, green and yellow orbs of neon pulsating. Your exploration will begin with a driving tour of the city featuring sites such as the Gwanghwamun Plaza and a statue of Yi Sunsin, who had engaged in twenty-three naval battles against Japan and emerged victorious in all of them during the Hideyoshi invasion (1592-1598).
As you leisurely make your cruise around the plaza, you will drive past Gwanghwadmun, the main gate of Gyeongbok palace, standing majestically in the whirl of city traffic, Government Building, Sejong Cultural Center and Zero Kilometer of Korea. Then, you head on to Jongro, a commercial street covering much of them in one of the busiest district of Seoul. While cruising, you will see Bosingak bell tower on the southeast corner of the Jonggak intersection. On the other side from the bell tower stands Jongro tower an otherworldly architectural design that dominates city's skyline followed by a historic site of Pagoda Park, the locale for the reading of the Declaration of Independence in 1919, UNESCO World heritage site Jongmyo shrine, and then the 14th century Dongdaemun, the Gate of Uplifting Benevolence standing on the busy intersection.
The drive goes through the midst of the city's largest East Gate Market complex and continues to N Tower. Perched on top of Namsan Mountain at 243 meters high, the tower measures 236.7 meters in height from the base and tops out at 479.7 meters above sea level, Tower observatory is the absolute best place to enjoy the most enthralling vistas of Seoul. Near the tower base, you cannot possibly miss the couple locks to symbolize that their love for each other is forever and a time capsule that is scheduled to be opened five hundred years later in 2485.
