What you'll do

Do you know why every palace in Seoul located around the mountain? Do you want to know the traditional market in Seoul really works or not in the real life of local people? Have you ever wondering about Korean culture which is not related to K-pop stuff? Do you want to find out and inspired be from daily life in Seoul? I'll explain about the places where you could see, and it will help with your understanding. Let's figure it out together! The tour will start from the heart of Seoul—Gwanghwamun. From starting Gwanghwamun, we will explore a place that can feel Korean culture and history—like the old palace, traditional market, and area where reflects life in Seoul or Korea. Basically, we'll walk around Gwanghwamoon(Jongro area), but a specific schedule is irregular. It depends on the situation—unexpected factors like weather, traffic, etc. And if I could, I wanna make a plan which is based on your interest and taste through short Q&A—It won't take even 5 min, don't worry about that.

Where you'll be

Gwanghwamun is the best place where the past and present of Korea are well-mixed. We can find royal palaces of the Chosun dynasty, traditional market, blue house where the president lives in, agora and even the biggest Starbucks in Korea in this area. I would like to show you the past and present of Seoul and the lives and thoughts of the people in Seoul.
