Full description
Your day will start with a pick-up from your hotel to Gyeongbokgung Palace, the most beautiful and remains the largest of all five palaces. (Tuesday: visit Changdeokgung place) Then, move to Bukchon Hanok village which literally translates to "northern village," where many traditional houses operate as cultural centers, guesthouses and restaurants. Walk to Samcheongdong lined with cafes, museums, antique shops and galleries where you can enjoy the art and shopping. Next, go to Ihwha Mural Village, located less than a 10 minute walk uphill from the buzzing Daehakno area. As you head up the slopes of Mount Naksan, the noise and crowds will give way to fresh air and gorgeous, expansive views of the city but also to something unexpected - street art. Lastly, your trip will end at Gwangjang Market, the nation’s first market. Although the goods are not brand name products, the wide selection of high-quality goods at inexpensive prices will make it an enjoyable shopping experience. The market is famous for the delicious foods so have lunch or some snacks.
