Witness the beautiful traditional Korean wooden houses called ‘hanoks’ that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. Although the village serves as a residential area, many of these hanoks have become present-day cultural centers, guesthouses, restaurants and tea houses. Experience, learn and immerse in the traditional Korean culture as you stroll through the streets to catch glimpses of 14th century.

    Changdeokgung Palace: Visit this UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site that is known to be the most well-preserved of the five remaining royal Joseon palaces. Walk around its beautiful garden and marvel at the splendid architecture of this palace that represents the beauty of Korea.

    N Seoul Tower Observatory: Enjoy unobstructed views of the picturesque city skyline from the roof terrace of this observatory. Witness the revolving restaurant here that provides complete panoramic views of Seoul! You could even watch the latest movie trailers and music videos at the personal media play zone and explore the pavilion exhibition halls here where various cultural events are held.

    Namdaemun Market:This open-air traditional market is the largest in the capital and has a history that traces back to the Joseon Dynasty. With over 10,000 retailers, vendors and wholesalers, discover the very best selection of merchandise on sale at one place!
