  • Visit the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Changdeokgung Palace
  • Shop for souvenirs at the oldest daily market in Seoul
  • Eat delicious Korean street food, from spicy pork to delicate dumplings
Discover Korea's past in Bukchon village, where traditional houses are preserved in the heart of modern Seoul. Visit Changdeokgung Palace and the Tteok (rice cake) museum. Then shop among the silk merchants at Kwang Jang, the oldest daily market in Seoul.
What to Expect
Get lost among the picturesque jumble of traditional houses in Bukchon Hanok Village. Get spectacular views of the sleek skyscrapers that make up modern-day Seoul in a startling combination of old meets new.

Dedicated to preserving Korea's sweet culinary history, the Tteok museum takes you through the traditions and symbolism of Korea's favorite dessert, glutinous rice cake.

It's time to visit Changdeokgung Palace, the main palace of the Joseon dynasty for 300 years . Completed in 1412, and surrounded by mountains and streams, the guide will bring to life the mythical stone creatures guarding the palace. On tours that fall on a Monday you will visit Kyungbokgung Palace.

The tour concludes at Kwang Jang Market, the oldest daily market in Seoul. Famous for its silk merchants in particular, with over 5000 vendors it's hard to know where to start shopping. The snack stalls are a good bet. Foodies on a budget will love tteokbokki, a meal of chewy pressed rice cakes in a hot red sauce. Your friendly local guide can give you advice on where to go next on your trip through historical Seoul.
