What To Expect ?
Enjoy an afternoon outing that visits three main highlights of the city of Seoul! See the Changdeokgung Palace, the Insadong Arts and Crafts Market, and the Namdaemun Traditional market with the aid of a knowledgeable tour guide! The tour's first stop is Changdeokgung Palace, the second royal villa built after Gyeongbok Palace in 1405. Changdeok was the principal palace for many of the Joseon kings, and is the best preserved among the five remaining royal Joseon palaces. See the public palace area, a royal family residence building. Then visit the rear garden, a place of rest for the kings. The garden boasts a gigantic tree that is over 300 years old, a small pond, and a pavilion.

Next, the tour will travel to the Insadong Arts and Crafts Market. Insadong has been at the heart of nation’s capital for 600 years and it was a cultural center during the Chosun Dynasty (1392-1910). The Ministry of Art was once located at this market. Take time to explore the countless alleys that branch out from the main street, and see why this place has become known as "Merry’s Area" and a favorite shopping spot among foreigners.

Finally, stop at Namdaemun Traditional Market, the largest traditional market in Korea with various goods in store such as children’s, men’s and women’s wear. The displayed goods are sold at reasonable prices, and most of the goods are produced directly by shopkeepers. Namdaemun Market is open at almost all hours of the day and is consistently crowded with retailers and shoppers from all over the country. At daybreak, the sight of busy Koreans creates a unique scene in the market, which is becoming a worldwide tourist attraction.
