What you can expect

Seoul first became the capital of Korea in 1392, following the establishment of the Joseon dynasty. Six centuries of dominance have naturally created historical and cultural masterpieces dotting the landscape of one of the world’s largest and oldest capital cities. During this day tour, our local expert will take you to several sights in a thorough introduction to Seoul and its identity:

Jogyesa Buddhist Temple: The center of Korean Buddhism, this beautiful temple was built in the late 14th century. Its courtyard is a zen sanctuary in the middle of the urban jungle, with hundreds of intricate lanterns decorating it.
