From visiting classics like the stunning Gyeongbokgung, iconic Namsan Tower, and ever popular Dongdaemun Plaza, we’ll be visiting some lesser known gems. This fun extension has been curated by myself, Samantha, and Hallie of The Soul of Seoul, who has called this city home for well over a decade!

Disclaimer: Of course, any itinerary is subject to changes due to unexpected surprises, weather, or cancellations, but here’s what you can expect:
May 16: Instead of going to Incheon, we’ll check into our hotel in Myeongdong! Take the afternoon to relax, enjoy Myeongdong, and then we’ll meet for a fun street food hunt :)
May 17: Ready to experience Seoul’s subway? We’re headed over to the beautiful Gyeongbokgung, the main palace of Korea! We’ll then walk over to Bukchon Hanok Village to see another example of Korea’s traditional houses as well as get lunch. Enjoy free time in the afternoon to souvenir shop around Insadong and check out all its hidden gems. We’ll regroup in the evening to see Namsan Tower at night.
May 18: In the morning, we’ll get to experience Hallie’s unique tour of Ihwa Mural Village. Then we’ll have free time around Gwangjang Market, made famous in Netflix’s Street Food series. In the afternoon, we’ll go to a lesser known observatory to take in the views from above and at night we’ll go to see Dongdaemun Design Plaza all lit up!
May 19: Our last day! After a more relaxed morning, to enjoy some last minute shopping in Myeongdong and packing up, we’ll load our things onto the bus and head to Seoul Botanic Park! This newly opened park is full of beautiful exhibits and nature. In the evening, we’ll take you to your hotel in Incheon, where we’ll make sure all your airport transfers are arranged for the next day!
May 20: Departure day! If you’re planning your flights, this is when you want to plan to leave Korea.
