Full description
Meet your guide and then hop aboard a brand-new rickshaw driven by a professional guide, or choose to take your own bike. Set off for a few hours of urban exploration through Seoul's Old Town. Begin with a ride towards the royal palace of Gyeongbokgung to get a look at its grand architecture. Pass by Gwanghwamun Gate, a nationwide landmark. Ride through all four main gates of old Seoul, granting you unique energy and luck as you do. Arrive at the West Village to enjoy an early lunch of Kalguksu. This dish consists of handmade, knife-cut wheat flour noodles served in a large bowl with broth and other ingredients. After lunch, head over to the Presidential Blue House to take a photo of its unique exteriors. The highlight of the tour is a ride up the hills of Bukchon Hanok Village, where old Korean-style houses are preserved. Some locals still live in these houses and you can find interesting restaurants and cafes with traditional atmospheres in the area. The next stop is Insadong, where you can witness the meeting point of traditional and modern. Finally, stop at Jogyesa temple, where your guide will share the brief history of Buddhism in Korea through the lens of various past dynasties. Enjoy a comfortable ride with Wi-Fi and a blanket in a rickshaw, or opt to pedal yourself on a bike.
