Gyeongbokgung Palace

Gyeongbokgung Palace - the largest of the five palaces constructed by the Joseon Dynasty. Joseon lasted for 500 years and laid the foundation for major aspects of Korean culture and identity, including the entrenchment of Confucian ideals and doctrines in Korean society, and the importation and adaptation of Chinese culture. Originally built in 1394, Gyeongbokgung translates as “Palace Greatly Blessed by Heaven,” and it is an intense source of pride for Koreans, who have seen it ruined and rebuilt throughout the centuries, most recently during Japanese occupation in the early 20th century. The current restoration project, whose aim is to return to palace to its 19th-century expansiveness, is about half complete now.

Bukchon Hanok Village

Surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine, Bukchon 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 neighborhoods that the village covers lie to the north of the two significant Seoul landmarks, Cheonggyecheon Stream and Jongno.

The 3rd Tunnel

The 3rd Tunnel was discovered in 1978 by Korean forces. It spans over 1635m in length, 2m in width, and 2m in height and is located 52km from Seoul. It is estimated that approximately 30,000 soldiers could move through the tunnel per hour. Once the tunnel was found, North Koreans insisted it was intentionally made by us to invade North Korea, but, their insistence was proven untrue as the explosions used to make the tunnel face southward.

Dora Observatory

Situated in Paju and at the northernmost point of the Military Demarcation Line of the Western Front, the Dora Observatory replaced the previous Songaksan Observation Post which was closed. From the observatory, visitors can overlook North Korea and its various locations including Gaeseong, Songaksan, Kim Il-Sung Statue, and Cooperation Farm.

Opened in 1964, the Namdaemun Market is the largest traditional market in Korea with various goods in store. All products are sold at affordable prices and the stores in this area also function as a wholesale market.

Located in the heart of Seoul, Myeong-dong market has been a witness to Korea’s tumultuous modern-day history as a center of city politics, economy, and culture. To international visitors, Myeong-dong is a stunning shopping district with countless shops and restaurants. Its wild popularity has led to similar shopping districts springing up all across the country.
