Get your Korean culture fix with this morning tour of a famed palace, museum and Buddhist temple in Seoul, supplemented by the expert knowledge of your English-speaking guide
Drive past and learn more about the President's pad, Blue House (or Cheongwadae)
Watch the changing of the guards and tour the spectacular Gyeongbokgung Palace
Visit the National Folk Museum to build your knowledge of Korean history
Visit tranquil Jogyesa Buddhist Temple, an important building for Zen Buddhism in Korea
Make a quick stop off at a Ginseng Center, one of Korea's major exports
Start your morning of Korean culture with a tour of Seoul's largest (and arguably most beautiful) palace. Gyeongbokgung Palace, built in the 1300s, has been destroyed and reconstructed many times, but you'll be relieved it's still here today for you to stroll the spacious grounds, intricate architecture and grand pavilions. Combine this with a guided visit of the National Folk Museum and your knowledge of Korean history will be fit to burst! Along the way, your informative tour guide will relate facts about areas of interest, particularly related to the distinguished Joseon Dynasty. Realize the deep significance of Buddhism in Korean culture at Jogyesa Temple, a tranquil refuge from the megacity outside and the leading center of Zen Buddhism in Korea.
We went on a Saturday, while they were setting up for a rally on the opposite street near the city hall. I would not advise to go on a weekend as there are so. many. tourists. not good for your photos! Hehe. Though it was very enlightening to see the temples and to know the history behind it. We were also able to witness the changing of guards ceremony at 11:00am.
The tour guide, is very good. He explained every point, in every area. So we know about the culture and history of palace, emperor, etc. awesome, thanks to K-Look. 👍
I enjoyed touring the palace and folk museum though would prefer more guided explanations of exhibit rather than just let us go around and read of the labels on the wall. Also would prefer less time at ginseng centre.
Our tour guide steven was awesome. It seems that he may be rushing a little. But experience was priceless
This was a fun and wonderful experience for us. Would definitely avail Klook again on our next trip!
