Gyeongbokgung Palace / National Folk Museum

[Gyeongbokgung Palace]

Having been built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace is arguably the most beautiful and remains the largest of all five palaces in Seoul. The premises were once destroyed by fire during the Imjin War (Japanese Invasions, 1592-1598). However, all of the palace buildings were later restored under the leadership of Heungseondaewongun during the reign of King Gojong (1852-1919).

[National Folk Museum]

Located inside Gyeongbokgung Palace, the National Folk Museum of Korea presents over 4,000 historical artifacts that were used in the daily lives of ordinary Korean people. Here you can fully immerse yourself in previous domestic and agricultural lifestyles, and learn about Korea’s cultural beliefs. The National Folk Museum of Korea has three permanent and two special exhibitions as well as a library, souvenir shop, and other subsidiary facilities.

Bukchon Hanok Village / Insadong

[Bukchon Hanok Village]
Bukchon Hanok Village is a Korean traditional village in Seoul with a long history located on the top of a hill between Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeok Palace, and Jongmyo Royal Shrine. The traditional village is composed of lots of alleys and “Hanok”(Traditional Korean houses) and is preserved to show a 600-year-old urban environment.

[Hanbok-Korean traditional costume]
The rental fee for Hanbok is included in this package. You can explore this traditional area wearing Korean traditional costume and take photos for your memory!

[Blue House]
The Blue House (Cheong Wa Dae) where the president of Korea lives is located in this area, so you can stop by during the tour!

[Insadong]
Insadong is a popular neighborhood in the heart of Seoul that is often visited by locals and tourists wanting to experience the traditional culture of Korea. Streets and narrow back alleys are lined with art galleries, wooden tea houses, restaurants, cafes, and small shops selling arts and crafts. The main street, Insadong-gil, runs for 700 meters from Tapgol Park in the south to Anguk-dong Rotary. Insadong is one of the best places in Seoul to find tea, calligraphy materials, folk crafts, antique furniture, Hanbok (Korean traditional costume) and Hanji (Korean traditional paper). Many Korean ceramics, some dating back thousands of years, are bought and sold here every day. Their prices range from a few won to millions of won. Many of the streets and alleys are blocked off to vehicles on Saturdays (14:00-22:00) and Sundays (10:00-22:00). This is the best and most popular time to visit.

N Seoul Tower observatory / Myeongdong Shopping Street

[N Seoul Tower & Myeongdong Shopping Street]

Namsan Seoul Tower was built in 1969 as Korea’s first integrated transmission tower beaming television and radio broadcasts across the capital. Since opening to the public in 1980, it has become a much-loved Seoul landmark. The tower’s main attractions include multi-colored digital art projected onto the tower at night, a digital observatory, a roof terrace, the Hankook restaurant, the n. Grill restaurant, and the Haneul (Sky) Restroom. Namsan Seoul Tower’s mountain surroundings on Namsan Mountain have made it a popular place to unwind for locals and tourists alike. Situated on top of the N Plaza, the Roof Terrace is a spacious wooden viewing deck whose exotic atmosphere makes it very popular with lovers. A recent attraction for courting couples is “Locks of Love,” thousands of padlocks attached to the fence by romantic Seoulites symbolizing their undying affection.

Dongdaemun Market / DDP

[Dongdaemun Market]

Dongdaemun Market is a large commercial district comprised of traditional markets and shopping centers that covers the entire area around Dongdaemun Gate, a prominent landmark in Korea. It is Korea’s largest wholesale and retail shopping district featuring 26 shopping malls, 30,000 specialty shops, and 50,000 manufacturers. All kinds of goods can be found here including silks and fabric, clothes, shoes and accessories, electronics, leather goods, sporting goods, office supplies, pet products, and toys. Although Dongdaemun Market is traditionally famous for its night market, this popular shopping district attracts hordes of shoppers and tourists at all times of the day. Like Namdaemun Market, Dongdaemun Market sells a variety of products, but unlike Namdaemun Market, it is open 24-hours a day. Dongdaemun’s famous food alley, Mukja Golmok, is also essential for anyone wanting to check out the latest trends in Korean cuisine.

[DDP – Dongdaemun Design Plaza]

The Dongdaemun Design Plaza, also called the DDP, is a major urban development landmark in Seoul, South Korea designed by Zaha Hadid and Samoo, with a distinctively neo-futuristic design characterized by the “powerful, curving forms of elongated structures”. The landmark is the centerpiece of South Korea’s fashion hub and popular tourist destination, Dongdaemun, featuring a walkable park on its roofs, large global exhibition spaces, futuristic retail stores and restored parts of the Seoul fortress. The DDP has 3 underground levels and 4 above-ground levels, and the main building is 280 meters long. The building is equipped with diverse public spaces including exhibition hall, conference hall, design museum, the design lab, the academy hall, media center, seminar room, Dongdaemun History and Culture Park, the designers’ lounge, and the design market. The art hall works as a launching platform for the Korean creative and cultural industry and operates as a key space for conventions, trade shows, exhibitions, fashion shows, concerts, and performances. The museum hall consists of five sections and allows many artists to engage in the design industry and exchange their ideas. The design playground, Design Dulle-Gil (trail), the design museum, the design exhibition hall, and the design rest area are located inside the museum hall.

Songdo Central Park (Incheon)

[Songdo Central Park]

This park is a public park in the Songdo district of Incheon, South Korea. Central Park is a public zone in the center of Korea’s first international city, inspired by New York City’s Central Park. It serves to connect to various civic and cultural destinations by providing a seawater canal that refreshes itself every 24 hours. The park also displays sculpture and artwork such as the swooping neo-futuristic metallic architecture of the Tri-Bowl. The park has become popular with families in Songdo and Incheon and draws day-visitors from the Seoul area. The forested area in the park also fills with daytime tents and campers on weekends. A patio on the east side of the park has cafes and small restaurants, and canoes are available for rental. A water-taxi service crosses the lake for transportation and tourism. Central Park is accessible from the nearby Canal Walk shopping court or by Central Park Station of Incheon Metro Line 1. Several scenes of the 2012 Gangnam Style music video by Psy were filmed in Songdo Central Park. And thanks to the modern architecture and greenery, this place often features on several TV shows.

Incheon Chinatown and Songwol-dong Fairy Tale Village

[Incheon Chinatown]

The history of Incheon Chinatown is over 100 years old. While not all traditional culture of the first generation has been preserved, the area still harbors many of the flavors of China. Incheon became a China-friendly city after the modern opening of the late 1800s. Korea started modern trade by signing the China–Korea Treaty of 1882 treaty with China in 1882. An 1883 report indicated that 63 Chinese people lived there. In 1892, they increased to 637 people, and they increased to about 1000 people in the early 1900. Today, the Chinese residents of Chinatown are mostly 2nd or 3rd generation descendants of the early Chinese settlers. Incheon Chinatown provides people with various food, attractions. In Incheon Chinatown, there are many foods such as Sweet and Sour pork, Assorted Seafood and Vegetables with Mustard Sauce, Noodles with Black Soybean Sauce(Jajangmyeon), Fortune Cookie, Mooncake, Gongal Bread (Pita Bread) and so on.

[Songwol-dong Fairy Tale Village]

Songwoldong Donghwa Village is literally “donghwa,” a fairy-tale town. The whole town is full of themes from fairy-tales. A big rainbow-board reads “Songwoldong Donghwa Village” welcomes visitors at the entrance. Take the left-side alley, where the village begins. Numerous main characters in fairy tales are waiting for you in murals, sculptures, and photo zones. While walking through the village recalling the titles, main characters, and story-lines, visitors are fascinated by the village. There are photo zones here and there, but it is safe to say that the whole village is a big photo zone. Cute figures in various colors fill the town. Visitors usually return to their childhoods by the characters in fairy tales
The Wizard of OZ, Little Red Riding Hood, the Snow White, Cinderella, The Sleeping Beauty, Frog Prince, Arabian Night, Byeoljubujeon – a tale of rabbit and turtle, an Old Man with a Lump, the Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and more. One day is not long enough if you want to take pictures with all the main characters.

Jayu(Freedom) Park - 'Goblin' Filming Location

[Jayu(Freedom) Park]

Nestled in Mt. Eungbongsan in Incheon Metropolitan City, Jayu Park was first called Manguk Park and then Seo Park as the Japanese power became stronger. During the colonial rule of Japan, there was another park called Dong Park (East Park), which was created and used as a shrine by the Japanese. Jayu Park, or park of Freedom, has held its name ever since October 3, 1957, when a statue of General McArthur, who led the Incheon Amphibious Landing Operation during the Korean War, was erected at the summit of Mt. Eungbongsan. The park offers spectacular views of downtown Incheon and its surrounding mountains, the port, and the sea. This park is also famous as filming location of the famous K-drama ‘Goblin’ for several scenes.
