    First on the itinerary is a visit to Gyeongbokgung Palace! It is the largest royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty and an attraction not to be missed for anyone traveling in Seoul. Gyeongbokgung Palace is most notably characterized by the extensive palace grounds and an orderly arrangement of the palace buildings.

    The greatest highlight of Gyeongbokgung Palace is the Royal Guard Changing Ceremony. It takes place twice a day, every day at 10:00 and 14:00, except on Tuesdays. The ceremony lasts for 20 minutes per session, so be on time to witness this noteworthy event.

    Stop At: Bukchon Hanok Village, 37, Gyedong-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul 03059 South Korea

    Bukchon Hanok Village is a major traditional Korean residential area in Seoul, as well as a beloved tourist spot that showcases traditional Korean style and living. During the Joseon Dynasty, high-ranking government officials and nobles dwelled in this neighborhood. Visitors can immerse in the beauty of traditional architecture and the fun of exploring through the alleys. While at Bukchon Hanok Village, take some time to explore the Eight Scenic Views of Bukchon, the eight most scenic viewpoints that offer Bukchon’s unique charm and beauty. These viewpoints also serve as great photo spots with the gorgeous hanok houses in the background.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Insadong, Insa-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul South Korea

    Insa-dong is a unique area of Seoul, packed with traditional teahouses and handicraft shops along the main road and within the narrow alleys. The highlight here is none other than the shopping complex, otherwise known as Ssamziegil! A rather peculiar-looking building that resembles the shape of the Korean alphabet “ㅁ,” it is considered the most ideal place for international tourists to purchase souvenirs or take memorable pictures. After looking around Ssamziegil, do not forget to drop by one of the nearby teahouses to have a traditional Korean tea experience.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Gwanghwamun Square, 172, Sejong-daero, Jongno-gu, Seoul 03154 South Korea

    Gwanghwamun Square is a street of culture that was redesigned in the heart of the city to create a global spot that restores the sights of old Seoul with its 600-year history. At the plaza, make sure to take photos in front of these statues of the most well-known influential figures in Korean history – Admiral Yi Sun-shin and King Sejong the Great (fourth king of the Joseon Dynasty). If time allows, stop by the underground exhibition hall located at Gwanghwamun Square to learn more about the stories of King Sejong and Admiral Yi. The exhibition is free and leaflets are available in English, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Cheonggyecheon Stream, Seoul South Korea

    Cheonggyecheon Stream is Seoul’s best-known stream that crosses from the Jongno to Junggu area. Along the stream is a path stretching over 12 kilometers in length where people can leisurely stroll while listening to the gentle sounds of the flowing water. Visitors can also throw in a coin and make a wish at Cheonggyecheon’s wishing well known as Palseokdam.

    Cheonggyecheon Stream becomes even more beautiful around Buddha’s Birthday celebration and Seoul Lantern Festival period with colorful lanterns and decorations adorning the area. Buddha’s Birthday is celebrated on April 8 of the lunar calendar and Seoul Lantern Festival takes place in November every year, offering a wonderful evening sight to visitors walking along Cheonggyecheon Stream during those festive periods.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Myeongdong Shopping Street, Jung-gu, Seoul South Korea

    With rows of shopping buildings lined along every street, Myeong-dong is one of Seoul’s major shopping districts. Majority of the visitors consist of international tourists and young adults in their twenties and thirties. Myeong-dong’s main street stretches for approximately 1 kilometer, starting from Myeong-dong Subway Station (Seoul Subway Line 4) and leading up to Lotte Department Store at Euljiro1-ga Station (Seoul Subway Line 2). When setting off from Cheonggye Plaza, Lotte Young Plaza can be marked as the start point. Myeong-dong is packed with numerous brand name shops, duty free stores and department stores, making it ideal for at least one to two hours of shopping.

    Finally, finish your day at Namsan Seoul Tower, Seoul’s number one attraction to take in the city’s nightscape. Namsan Seoul Tower is a major landmark itself, but the premise offers much more to see and do, namely the Roof Terrace, where padlocks symbolizing unfailing love cover the terrace fences, and the Digital Observation Deck that unfolds a panoramic view of Seoul. Several restaurants can also be found within the area that doubles the enchanting ambience. Diners can take in the stunning night view of the city while enjoying a delightful meal at one of the restaurants here.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Tongin Market, 3, Pirundae-ro 6-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul South Korea

    If you get hungry from wandering about all morning, then it’s time to head to Tongin Market. The market is especially famous for its gireum tteokbokki (stir-fried rice cakes) and tteok galbi(grilled short rib patties). While you are here, make sure to try “Dosirak Café,” in which dosirak is a Korean word for lunchbox. It is a fun culinary experience unique to Tongin Market, offering visitors the opportunity to pick and enjoy a wide variety of menu items using traditional brass coins called yeopjeon.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Seochonnadri Hanbok, 13, Jahamun-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul 03041 South Korea

    After an enjoyable lunch at Tongin Market, take a short walk to the nearby Seochon (literally translates to “western village”). It is a delightfully charming neighborhood located to the west of Gyeongbokgung Palace, which is how the name originated.

Meanwhile, fancy modern buildings also sprang up throughout the village over the years.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Samcheongdong-gil Road, Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul South Korea
