Seoul tours are a great way to get acquainted with the city or specific aspects of it and cater to just about anyone with options to walk, ride a bus, or even fly in a helicopter as you tour. As the capital city of South Korea and the home to over 10 million residents, Seoul is a metropolis that is interesting and engaging, largely due to the intermixing of the old, traditional South Korean culture with more modern and progressive social and cultural mores. You can reserve a ticket for day tours in Seoul Korea that cover some of the most exciting and popular attractions such as the Insadong shopping district, Deoksugung Palace, Gyeongbok Palace, the N Seoul Tower, and virtually any of the other top attractions. A city tour in Seoul is a great way to spend your first day or two in the city to get acquainted with your new surroundings and determine what you want to do and see for the rest of your trip.
There are a wide variety of ways that you can enjoy Seoul tours. From a Seoul helicopter tour to a river cruise of the Han River, the means of exploring this awesome city is up to you to decide. There are so many different attractions in a city of this size that many prefer a Seoul walking tour spread out over the course of a couple of days, allowing them the time and leisure to explore the sights that are of greatest interest to them.
A river cruise on the Han is another great way to tour the city as you can get off at as many of the scheduled stops as you would like and explore many of the coastal areas of the capital city. Along the Han there are countless restaurants, bars, and cafes, and plenty of opportunities to jump off of the boat and dive into the vibrant city life going on day and night. Day tours in Seoul Korea give eager visitors the opportunity to see everything from downtown Seoul (whose skyline rivals that of places like New York City and Tokyo), to more remote attractions in the foothills of the mountains, including sacred temples, pagodas, and ancient burial grounds and shrines. If you are planning a city tour in Seoul, be sure to check that the temples (some of which are located directly in the city) are also included on the itinerary. No trip to Seoul is complete without seeing the intricately constructed temples that are so important to the preservation of the Korean culture on the southern part of the peninsula. Some of the most elaborate and impressive temples include Bongwansa Temple, Daegaksa Temple, and Gyeongguksa Temple.
If you are interested in day tours in Seoul Korea, you have a whole world of options to explore. You could spend weeks at the museums alone, but the National Museum of Korea is a definite must and offers audio tours in several languages. Others might enjoy a survey tour of the best temples and natural wonders in the city and the surrounding areas. A city tour in Seoul is a similar proposition. You will have to decide where to begin and what your main points of interest are, and if you are not able to fit it all in, you will simply have to return for another trip. If you are scheduling a trip to South Korea that is a week or longer, consider spending at least a couple days enjoying some of the Seoul tours of your choosing.
