Description

Explore the cultural heritage of Seoul on this morning tour. See the charming presidential residence, the majestic 13th-century Gyeongbokgung Palace, the vast historical collection at the National Folk Museum and an ornate Buddhist temple.

Spend your morning taking a cultural journey through Seoul, passing by the Blue House, the official residence of the South Korean president. Be sure to take note of its main building, whose blue tiles and smooth roof blend harmoniously with Bugaksan mountain in the background.

Continue on to the Gyeongbokgung Palace, famed for its exquisite beauty and grand sculptures dating back to the Joseon dynasty. Destroyed during the Japanese Invasion in 1592, it was reconstructed in 1868 and remains one of the grandest, most beautiful palaces in the country.

Move on to the National Folk Museum and discover exhibits hailing from all over Korea that illuminate centuries of history. Learn about traditional methods for farming, hunting, weaving, cooking and other housekeeping chores.

Afterward, visit Jogyesa Temple, the last stop on your morning tour. Marvel at its calming atmosphere and intricate architectural design. Housing the largest Buddhist shrine in Seoul, this temple is regarded as the centre of Korean Zen Buddhism.

Good experience, but perhaps we could have a bit more time at the museum and the Palace. I would have liked to have explored the Palace grounds more. Watched changing of the guards, which was interesting. Great tour guide, thank you, Erica Kim!
