En-Route de Palace

This intriguing tour through the historic lanes of Seoul is worth your time. Focus all your energy on the sights you see for you no longer have to worry about transportation or missing out on information, thanks to free hotel transfers and your designated tour guide. Check out the Blue House, or the “Cheongwadae”, which is the official residence of the President. The blue tiles of the building are sure to grab your attention.

A Cultural Feast

The Gyeonbokgung Palace stands tall and proud after being destroyed during the Japanese invasion and reconstructed in 1868. Apart from the luxurious sights, make sure to visit the National Folk Museum which is located on the grounds of the Palace. Learn about the Korean lifestyle and listen in for interesting facts about their culture from your tour guide.

Next, you’ll be taken to the Jogyesa Buddhist Temple which is not your traditional Korean Temple. Learn about the Zen Buddhism in Korea before making your way to Ginseng Centre. Make a short stop for lunch and choose between two Korean dishes, Bibimbap and Bulgogi. After that, feast your eyes on yet another Palace, the Changdeokgung Palace, which is a World Heritage-listed site.

After all the sight-seeing, gear up for some hardcore shopping as you cruise down the busy lanes of Insadong and Namdaemun. Surrounded by authentically decorated stalls and antique galleries, you’re sure to load up on souvenirs before making your way back to your hotels.
