Welcome to SOUTH KOREA!
Arrive into Seoul – officially Seoul Special City, is the capital and largest metropolis of the South Korea. It forms the heart of the Seoul Caiptal Area which also includes the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi Province Considered to be a global city and rated as an Alpha – City by Globalization and World Cities Research Network (GaWC), Seoul was the world's fourth largest metropolitan economy in 2014.
Welcome to Seoul, upon arrival freshen up at airport and start your Seoul itinerary by exploring one of the city’s most popular tourist hubs – Insa-dong. This vibrant neighborhood has a huge pedestrian walkway and plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. There are many amazing things to do in Insadong and getting lost in the maze of secret alleys winding off from the main walkway is a huge must. Along the way, you’ll find tons of quirky shops selling traditional Korean goods, galleries, hipster cafes, teahouses, and plenty of photo opportunities. A short stroll away from the Insa-dong’s mazed alleys, you’ll find one of Korea’s most revered traditional villages – Bukchon Hanok Village. This 600-year old village dates back to the Joseon Dynasty and lies on top of a hill between three of the city’s most important landmarks – Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeok Palace, and Jongmyo Royal Shrine. Besides the excellent views, you can enjoy over the city, Bukchon is also the perfect place for a relaxing walkabout and, more importantly, a great way to get a closer look at traditional Korean houses, called hanok. Although most of these hanoks are privately owned today, many of them also serve as cultural hubs, guesthouses, eateries, and teahouses. When visiting here, though, please remember to be respectful at all times. Later proceed for Lunch and thereafter check-in at your hotel (universal check-in time = 1500 hrs).
