What To Expect

Gyeongbokgung Palace
Gyeongbokgung Palace is arguably the most beautiful, and remains the largest of all five palaces.

Remarkably, the most representative edifices of the Joseon Dynasty, Gyeonghoeru Pavilion and Hyangwonjeong Pond have remained relatively intact.

Woldae and the sculptures of Geunjeongjeon (The Royal Audience Chamber) represent past sculptures of contemporary art.

Insadong is a valuable space where old but valuable traditional objects are exchanged in the middle of the city.

Packed with galleries, traditional crafts shops, antique shops, traditional tea houses, traditional restaurants and cafes

Stores in Insa-dong are very popular with young people as well as middle-aged people for their unique style.

Foreign tourists who visit Korea to see traditional Korean culture buy old-fashioned dried pollack or gomisul at traditional stores. And buy the peels on the street and eat the traditional scallions.

Bukchon Hanok Village
Surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine, Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty.

The name Bukchon, which literally translates to “northern village,” came about as the neighborhood lies north of two significant Seoul landmarks, Cheonggyecheon Stream and Jongno.

Today, many of these hanoks operate as cultural centers, guesthouses, restaurants and tea houses, providing visitors with an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse themselves in traditional Korean culture.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Kwangjang Market
It was selected as one of the top three chapters of Hanyang in the late Joseon Dynasty.

All market buildings were destroyed during the Korean War, but market functions were restored as transactions of daily necessities, including munitions and black-market transactions by refugees.

Famous places are eatery, and famous things are drug gimbap, bindae tteok and yukhoe.

Great experience with our tour guide Miki
Mike T, 26-01-2019
This was our first family trip to Korea. It was 6 of us with grandparents. Miki was a great tour guide for the two days we had in Seoul. He was very attentive to our needs because our two boys (7 and 3 years old) needed to have fun and exciting things instead of the plain sightseeing. Miki had answers to whatever questions and requests we had. Our flight arrived very early before anything was opened. So Miki added another stop to the itinerary and took us to the an observation point where we could see the entire Seoul and the sunrise. We asked Miki about changing the itinerary so we could find more activities for kids instead of visiting the traditional village. He took us to different places at Insadong and the kids had so much fun.

Miki was great with our boys especially the 3 year old. He even held him for us when the little boy was too tired to walk! He was a great tour guide and also a great photographer. In addition to helping us take pictures for us, he even took out his own SLR camera and started taking pictures to journal our visit. And he uploaded all the pictures to Google Drive for us before we asked him. We really enjoyed our time in Seoul. Thanks to Miki for giving us a great experience. We were very glad that we booked with Exciting Korea. Next time if we are planning to go skiing in Korea, we would definitely ask for Mik (heard that he is also a ski instructor, perfect for our kids!)
