The Dark Side of Seoul Walking Audio Tour by VoiceMap
Murder! Ghosts! Sex! This is the side of Seoul that you won’t find in the tourism brochures. Take a self-guided GPS audio tour down the dark alleys of the forgotten 600-year history of bloody massacres, seedy hideaways and mourning ghosts. Stops on this tour include the following: the site of a gruesome massacre, the bridge whose stones tell a dark story that lovers and passersby know nothing about, and a neighborhood known to be occupied by the spirits of prostitutes who met grisly ends.
Along the way we regale tales of Seoul’s famous ghosts and murderers, weird and surprising landmarks, and the ancient city’s scandalous secrets. There will be an opportunity to buy refreshments. Children under 18 should not take this tour. It involves violent stories, sex jokes and a foul-mouthed tour guide.
The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
