Seoul City Tour
Tuesday (July 25th), 13:00 - 19:00
We will be offering two different options for our upcoming tours (see below). Depending on your preference, we will be separating and guiding you into two teams. Each team will have a different time schedule during the tours.
Changdeokgung Palace, built by King Taejong in 1405, is the best-preserved palace among all the royal palaces from the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) and has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It served as the central location for the kings and their ministers to discuss state affairs and govern the people, as well as the primary residence for the royal family for about 270 years, making it a significant historical site.

Option 1.. Makgeolli (Korean Rice Wine) Experience
As one of the most vibrant traditional markets in Seoul, Gwangjang Market is based in the center of the city so it can easily be located by even first-time visitors. This historic market opened in the early 20th century and is home to a number of clothing and food stalls, offering tourists a taste of traditional Korean cuisine. Starting with "addictive gimbap," one of Koreans’ all-time favorite snacks, and nokdujeon (mung bean pancake), visitors can sample a range of Korean delicacies. Other traditional treats such as tteok-bokki (stir-fried rice cake) and eomuk (fish cake) are also available.
It is worth visiting the food stalls since most dishes are reasonably priced. If you have a keen interest in clothing, we recommend that you visit the hanbok stores and vintage clothing shops on the 2nd floor.
Following the tour, we'll drop you off at the Gwangjang Market, where you can experience local culture and cuisine at your own pace. However, please be aware that transportation back to the hotel from the market is not included in the tour. The market is conveniently located just one stop away from the hotel on public transportation, or you can easily hail a taxi.
If you prefer not to visit Gwangjang Market, the bus will take you directly back to the hotel.
Please note that dinner will NOT be provided as part of the tour on July 25th. However, you will find many excellent dining options in the Gwangjang market and nearby areas. If you would like recommendations for restaurants or cafes where you can enjoy a delicious meal on your own, please feel free to ask us (firstname.lastname@example.org). We hope you fully enjoy your private time in Seoul that evening.
