This guided city tour program is a perfect opportunity to immerse yourself into rich historical heritage of Korea. With comprehensive tour of palaces, Buddhist temples and traditional folk museums dating back to Joseon Dynasty, you will feel, learn and experience the cultural legacy of Korean dynasties.

Gyeongbokgung Palace
Gyeongbokgung Palace is a palace built by the King Taejo, the founder of the last kingdom of Korea, Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). The original building was destroyed by the Japanese during the war in 1592, being reconstructed in 1868. Gwanghwamun is the Southern main gate of the Gyeongbokgung Palace’s 4 gates.

Changdeokgung Palace
Changdeokgung Palace is known as the best preserved palace of the Joseon Dynasty’s five palaces. It has been nominated as the World Heritage by UNESCO. Originally an auxiliary palace, it eventually became the main palace as King’s residential compound since the Songjong (1470-1494) period.

National Folk Museum
The National Folk Museum is located on the compound of Gyeongbokgung Palace, demonstrating the retrospective of the traditional Korean lifestyle. It exhibits lives of both the ordinary people and aristocrats in different parts of Korea in the history, including traditional agricultural methods, hunting, weaving, cooking, and other housekeeping chores.

Especially popular for shoppers looking for bargains, this historical marketplace is well-reputed for its cheap price and wide variety of products.
