Seoul

Overview

TOUR CODE: KORHOL

Surrounded by mountains, Seoul is the cultural hub of South Korea where soaring skyscrapers, high-tech subways, and pop culture meet Buddhist temples, palaces, and open markets. The N Seoul Tower, built atop the Namsan peak, provides a view of the entire city and the surrounding areas from above. Get a taste of Korean flavor at the teahouses and shops of Insadong and visit Changdeokgung Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is a fine example of authentic ancient architecture. Myeong-dong is Seoul’s prime shopping district, which offers traditional souvenirs, arts, luxury brands, and fashion trends. Dongdaemun Market offers trendy clothes and accessories at bargain prices. Korean cuisine contains a large variety of meat and fish dishes along with wild greens and vegetables. Various preserved foods such as kimchi (fermented spicy cabbage), jeotgal (seafood fermented in salt), and doenjang (fermented soy bean paste) are particularly popular due to their distinctive flavors and high nutritional values. Seoul is the perfect vacation destination for both families and individuals alike.

SEOUL (B)

Today is yours free at leisure or perhaps take our optional tour to the Korean Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ which serves as a buffer zone between South and North Korea. It spans between the Southern and Northern limit lines. The Southern Limit Line extends from Imjingang River in the west to Dongho-ri in the east. Because of the high risk of military conflicts in the area, a phase line was established to control civilian access. Such restrictions, which have been in place for the last fifty years, have helped the ecological resources in the area to remain in an untouched state. As a result, the DMZ is also a unique natural ecosystem, one that is globally acknowledged for its ecological value.
