No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

Enjoy the highlights of the DMZ and get back to Seoul in time for lunch on a guided group tour. Listen to immersive commentary during visits to Imjingak Park, Dora Observatory, and other important landmarks. Have your camera ready for an unobstructed view of one of the world's most famous demilitarized zones. Best of all, this excursion does not include unnecessary shopping stops that other tours add on, which saves you valuable vacation time.

I went back to this palace even during the Covid, just don't forget to follow the social distancing rule and a;ways wear your mask. I think this palace is still worth visiting. A good place to start if you want to know about Korean history, culture and amazing architecture.

C ( 20.12.24 ) This palace was the best among Seoul's palace, and had various architecture in Choseon's period. The palace had Gwanghwamun and some architecture. There was good to walk with various view, and enjoy about Korea's history. Must visit on Seoul trip.

Great palace, don't miss the changing of the guard, all in historical uniforms. Even in the Covid era it's still worth a visit.

This palace is definitely a must see over all other palaces in Seoul. It’s enormous with many areas to spread out and explore. A small fee of ₩3000 is required to enter the grounds, but for the most famous/popular pictures you can take those for free without entering. Warning...a lot of construction and renovation so you won’t get to see any of the water features in previous pictures. Bring your walking shoes, lockers are provided for free on site. This is a great place to let the kids run around. Located in the “heart” of Seoul, there are many places close by to explore further. Only really need 1 hour, but can take up to 2 hours if you read all the signs and go in every building.
