This immersive full-day tour begins when your guide picks you up at your hotel and transports you to the divine Jogyesa Buddhist Temple. Located in the midst of busy urban streets bustling with people, the temple still has tranquil feeling due to the baeksong trees which surround it. Continue to Cheongwadae Sarangchae, where you can learn about South Korea’s historical and political history, before visiting the famous Blue House, the Presidential Residence known for its azure tiles and the small mountains it sits alongside. Next, make a stop at the Gyeongbok Palace, the main royal palace of the Joseon dynasty dating back to 1395 where you can take a tour of the grounds to embrace the imposing yet serene architecture found here.

Take photos as you don Hanbok fashions, the traditional Korean dress characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines. Enjoy some time exploring the Amethyst factory for an exciting shopping experience before your tour comes to a delicious conclusion as you learn how to prepare kimchi, a customary Korean cuisine. This pickled dish is made of vegetables with varied seasonings, often including spicy cabbage.
