Starting the tour with Gyeongbokgung Palace & National Folk Museum. It was in 1395, three years after the Joseon Dynasty was founded by King Taejo (Yi Seong-gye), when the construction of the main Royal Palace was completed after the capital of the newly founded dynasty moved from Gaeseong to Seoul (then known as Hanyang).
Have lunch with Korean traditional meal near Gyeongbokgung palace.
After that, you will visit Bukchon Hanok Village. Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. The name Bukchon, which literally translates to “northern village,” came about as the neighborhood lies north of two significant Seoul landmarks, Cheonggyecheon Stream and Jongno.
Let’s move to Samsung D’light which is a global exhibition space that showcases the latest product lineup by Samsung Electronics. The three-storied exhibition space is not merely a display of electronic products, but a space of interaction that allows visitors to experience new life patterns through state-of-the-art digital technology categorized by theme.
Finally, have a fantastic evening at Lotte World Tower with the view. The conceptual design called for a slender cone with convex, gently curved sides, drawing inspiration from Korean ceramics and Korean writing brushes. The 6th tallest building in the world when completed, this skyscraper will be 123 floors, standing at 555 meters (1,824 ft). The tower will contain a gallery, cafés, a luxury hotel, a Skywalk, and an observation deck. It is one of the best spots to appreciate breathtaking views of the vibrant city lights of Seoul.
