This Seoul day tour will show you what the locals love about Seoul, so to get a better impression of the metropolis I must start with a visit to the most popular Seoul attraction for tourists, the Seoul City Wall. On this tour we will start from the south-west side and will head towards the city wall and the popular Gyeongbokgung palace, as well as the Seodaemun Prison and Dongdaemun Market.

Before the wall that is about 30 meters high was built, the Joseon Dynasty also had a fortified wall as their symbol of authority and strength in Korea. So don’t forget to make a stop for some photos with the famous wall and let’s start off with the wall tour.

If you arrive at the Seoul City Wall, you will see plenty of people photographing this giant wonder, because it is a popular photo opportunity. It is a beautiful, big and impressive wall, but sadly the entrance to the wall is not very well maintained, so there are very often people that are climbing the wall. You will probably get a security guard asking you to pay first, but there will most probably be no problem, you will most probably be let in anyway.

Now let’s get to the inside of the wall. When you have made it past the entrance, you will see there are two gates, an east and a west gate. They are both impressive, but I’m sure I’m not the only one that prefers the old, more historical, west gate. The west gate is built with large boulders from the mountains surrounding the city. They are so big that you feel like you are in a stone cave as you walk along the wall. It is a breathtaking experience to be able to walk on top of this large boulders and in front of you is the beautiful view of Seoul. I would recommend to walk the whole way around the wall, just to enjoy the views.

After the walk, I would recommend to make a stop at the old fortress palace, Gyeongbokgung Palace. This royal palace was built in the early 18th century and has been a very popular tourist attraction in the city. It has been a residence for the Kings and Queens of Joseon Korea, with their first home being built on this hill. Today, the palace is used as the crowning location for the changing of the royal blood. The palace is quite a popular tourist attraction, so there will most probably be a huge crowd there. You have to arrive there in the evening or during the night to be able to enjoy the spectacle there.

If you haven’t already been, I would also recommend a visit to Bukchon Hanok Village. If you look in Google Maps, you will be able to see that this village is located right next to the city. This is one of the oldest surviving villages in South Korea, and if you walk around there, you will see what all the fuss is about. The area has been fully renovated, and is now a wonderful tourist attraction. There is a great selection of restaurants, museums and coffee shops in this village. I would recommend to check it out, but make sure that you book your accommodation before you visit.

South Korea is quite a different culture to Australia, but there are some things that we have in common. Both countries have similar sized areas, and both are democratic with a free market system. I am really looking forward to seeing a good chunk of the country in a few weeks, and it is great to see that this is becoming an ever increasing favourite destination to visit. In my last trip I also made a trip to the East Coast, and it really is my favourite area. We will have some exciting and interesting reviews coming up over the next few months.

The accommodation we were staying at is called The Koryo

One Response to “Top Tips and Hidden Gems”

Hi there! I’m from Korea and I’m looking forward to checking out your blog in the next couple of months when I go back for work! I just found out a little while ago that you posted about me on here. (I’m the one who created the blog called “Korean Food: What To Eat And What Not To Eat”, and one of my best friends on twitter asked me if I’d meet you in person, so I was like “Yeah, you know who this is, he’s the Korean guy who writes about Korean food?”) Anyway, I’ll be checking back here regularly when I’m in Korea. I hope you enjoy your stay here. Have a nice day!
