In a concrete jungle, having a glimpse of what life used to be in the past, is a rather refreshing and welcoming change. Which is why your tour of Seoul begins at the Bukchon Hanok village area. Your tour guide will take you through the residential area that dates back to the Joseon Dynasty, and houses countless hanoks (traditional Korean houses) among other historic sites.
Then, take a walk to Changdeokgung Palace, one of Seoul's UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites. It is a palace renowned for its traditional Korean-style architecture and design. Continue your Korean tour along Jongmyo (Royal Shrine) and meet local people at Kwang Jang Market. This vast place houses ample shopping opportunities and items to choose from, which is why you tour ends here! But feel free to ask your local tour guide about other things to do and see in Korea.
