6:00 PM

Please arrive 30 minutes before your selected start time for pickup. Your operator can coordinate exact time and location.

Start your evening with pickup from your central Seoul hotel in time for a 6pm departure, and watch the sunset over the city as you drive to your first stop – Deoksu Palace (Deoksugung).

The striking palace is the only palace that is open for visits at night and the evening light adds a special air to your tour. As you explore the walled palace grounds, listen as your guide explains the meaning of its name – the ‘Palace of Virtue and Longevity’ – and its importance as one of the Five Grand Palaces of the Joseon Dynasty kings. Along the way, see the Jonghwajeon (the main hall), the Junmyeongdang (Princess Deokhye's kindergarden), and the Western-style Seokjojeon; then stroll through the forested gardens and admire the statue of King Sejong the Great.

After leaving the palace, continue through the illuminated streets of central Seoul on foot, stopping to admire the beautiful City Hall on Seoul Plaza. Finally, head to the lively Dongdaemun market, which will be buzzing with activity in the evening hours. Take time to browse the stalls and perhaps purchase clothes, souvenirs, or street food with the help of your guide.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 10pm.
