Discover bustling Seoul, see Gyeongbok Palace, visit the National Folk Museum and explore Namdaemun Market.
This extension is suitable for those who wish to visit Seoul, the capital of South Korea. This extension is private and therefore not all meals are included, which gives you the opportunity to occasionally select your own dining venue, allowing you to immerse further into Korean culture.
Make your way to South Korea's capital, Seoul, where you will be met by a driver and transferred to your hotel. This dynamic city may be well and truly on fast-forward for everything from fashion to technology, but it is still deeply rooted in tradition – you'll find yourself stumbling upon temples and palaces amongst the glittering skyscrapers and neon billboards. Seoul is also the place for foodies, the street snacks are second to none!
Take a full day to explore some of Seoul's many treasures with a local guide. Start at Gyeongbok Palace, the country's most famous and beautiful royal palace, where, as well as exploring, you will see the Royal Guard Changing Ceremony. Visit the National Folk Museum of Korea, the 14th-century Jogyesa Temple which is the centre of Korean Buddhism, Bukchon Hanok Village with its restored traditional houses and the observation deck at N Seoul Tower which offers panoramic views over the city. End the day at Namdaemun Market before returning to your hotel. (B,L)
