Highlights

Enjoy this morning half-day tour that will introduce you to the historical heritage of Seoul. Visit the famous Bukchon Hanok village, Jongmyo shrine, the Changdeokgung Palace or Gyeongbokgung Palace before finishing at Insadong. Once you are picked-up at your hotel, you will head off to the Buckchon Cultural Center, which will provide you with information about the Bukchon Hanok Village.

Your guide will take you to Buckchon Scenic Spots #4, #5, #6 and show you traditional houses called 'hanok' dating back to the Joseon Dynasty. The name, 'Bukchon,' which literally translates to 'northern village,' refers to the area being located north of Cheonggyecheon - a Korean landmark. You will then head to the Jongmyo Royal Shrine, built by Lee Seong Gye (1335-1408), the first king and founding father of the Joseon Dynasty. It was a primary place of worship for kings throughout the Joseon Dynasty and is a UNESCO-protected heritage. This site is replaced by National Palace Museum on Tuesdays.

Point1

Bukchon Hanok Village





Bukchon Hanok Village is a reflection of 600 years of Seoul’s history. The village is situated between Gyeongbokgung Palace and Changdeokgung Palace, and its streets are lined with traditional hanok. Unlike other hanok villages (such as Namsangol Hanok Village), Bukchon was not created for tourists and it is a residential village inhabited by Seoulites. The best place within Bukchon to experience the old hanok atmosphere may be Gaehoe-dong. Here, hundreds of hanok sit shoulder to shoulder.

Point2

Jongmyo Shrine




Jongmyo is a royal shrine dedicated to the performance of ancestral rites for the deceased kings and queens of the Joseon Dynasty. Being the place where the royal ancestral tablets are enshrined, Jongmyo’s atmosphere is solemn and sacred rather than splendid like the royal palaces. The simple and elegant buildings of this shrine have faithfully kept their original forms since the 16th century.

Point3

Changdeokgung Palace



Changdeokgung Palace is also known as Donggwol, the Eastern Palace, because of its location to the east of Gyeongbokgung Palace. For 270 years, the palace was home to the Joseon government and was also the favored residence of many Joseon Dynasty kings. This makes Changdeokgung Palace the longest-serving royal residential palace. Compared to other palaces, Changdeokgung Palace is well-preserved and still has many of its original features.
