What you'll do

The best local foods, traditional clothing stores, Chenggyecheon stream, Heunginjimun (Dongdaemun Gate), Seoul fortress and Ihwa mural village. You can enjoy all of these with me!

If you want to try popular street food, Gwangjang market is the place you should visit. There are so many different kinds of foods you can try out. Kimbab OR Bindaeddoek is inclusive in the tour.

The market is also famous for Korean traditional clothes, Hanbok. We will see a lot of Hanbok stores. Many of my foreign friends who visited Seoul said this was the best spot during their stay.

After the market, we will walk along Cheonggyecheon stream. Koreans love to hang out and relax there to escape from the city life.

Soon, you will meet Heunginjimun (Dongdaemun East gate), treasure N1, one of the 4 main gates into the city in the Joseon dynasty.

After the gate, we will walk next to Hanyangdoseong (Seoul city wall fortress), also from the dynasty protecting the city from foreign enemies. You will have amazing city views from the fortress!

We will also visit Ihwa mural village with a lot of street art works and wall paintings. The tour will end in Daehakro area, near Hyehwa station (line 4). It is a major arts and culture street with 150 theaters clustered.

Don't miss out this fantastic experience with me! :)

I was born and raised in Seoul, and I've lived in 5 different countries, USA, Canada, Australia, Russia and Germany. I've also traveled more than 40 counties, mostly alone so I could have more chances of experiencing local culture. I'm happy to talk about Korean and other culture of course.

I think Korean food is one of the most delicious and healthy one. We have so many types of cuisines. Gwangjang market is perfect for any street food in Korea.

I also love hiking. I solo hiked in Mt.Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Himalayas in Nepal twice, Alps in Europe and Fuji in Japan. I hike every week and I led a hiking club in Korea for over a year. As I really want others to enjoy Korean nature, I got a license of a tour guide for foriegn guests in Korea. So now I can show you my home country! :)
