Description

It's common for tourists visiting Seoul to be taken aback by the vastness and concentration of bustling crowds. Well, that's only because this place is the world's second largest metropolitan area and is a rising global city. From soaring skyscrapers, to Buddhist temples and pagoda, Seoul perfectly encapsulates the mix of old and new under one roof.

So waste no time and begin your tour at Gwanghwamun Gate, where you'll walk to the Seoul Museum of History. Located on the third floor of the museum is the Seoul City Panoramic Theatre, an impressive miniature exhibition of the city's entire landscape.

Next up is one of the five royal palaces in Seoul, Gyeonghuigung Palace, and shortly after, you'll head to Daehamun to catch the royal changing of the guards ceremony. Continue your tour through Cheonggyecheon Plaza, where you can capture picturesque streams, historic stone bridges, and uniquely decorated walls of the city, before making your way to Jongno, one of central Seoul's oldest areas.

Your last stop for the day is Bosingak Belfry - a bell used in the 12th century to tell time, but the original has been stored in the National Museum of Korea, and a remake now stands in its place. If you make it to this place by noon, you'll hear the bell go off. Your tour ends here, but feel free to ask your friendly tour guide about recommendations of things to do and see in Seoul.

*Pick-up at Gwanghwamun Station – Seoul Metro Subway Line 5, outside exit 5. Drop-off at Bosingak Bell Pavilion / Jonggak Station – Seoul Metro Subway Line 1.
