Palace and Temple Guide
Start your morning of Korean culture with a tour of Seoul’s largest (and arguably most beautiful) palace. Gyeongbokgung Palace, built in the 1300s, has been destroyed and reconstructed many times, but you’ll be relieved it’s still here today for you to stroll the spacious grounds, intricate architecture and grand pavilions. Combine this with a guided visit of the National Folk Museum and your knowledge of Korean history will be fit to burst! Along the way, your informative tour guide will relate facts about areas of interest, particularly related to the distinguished Joseon Dynasty. Realize the deep significance of Buddhism in Korean culture at Jogyesa Temple, a tranquil refuge from the megacity outside and the leading center of Zen Buddhism in Korea.
