Seoul, Korea - Layover

When we left our home country past July, we were on a 48 hour journey to Yangon.  A lot of transfers and lay overs.  We had three kids who were tired from all the airports walking in dim lights and lacking sleep. The best part of the whole trip though was our lay over in Seoul, Korea.  We had a quite pleasant experience during our over night lay over in Seoul, Korea.

Korea offers free transit tour to those who are just stopping by before heading to final destination.  There are several different options.  The one we went on was a six hour tour that left early in the morning and came back after lunch.  Six hours includes transportation and lunch.  It only cost us 10,000 won which is somewhat equivalent to $10.  This covered the lunch and the entry fee to the Palace.

The tour bus, plush and comfortable with full AC and buckles.  They call this the "limousine" bus.  The guide spoke English and was very friendly.  She gave us plenty of information as she took us around each stop.  We visited three in total.  She purchased the entry for the palace visit on our behalf and was quite efficient in getting us everywhere we needed to.

We visited three different sites.  First was the Cheong Gye Chon, which is a newly renovated and opened creek in the middle of the city.  Then we visited the Geong Bok Gung Palace.  We made it in time for the Royal procession.  Last we stopped at In Sa Dong for some lunch.  We ran out of time to walk around a bit but it's a real nice place with a lot of cultural products like dolls dressed in korean outfits and Korean art.

All this took only six hours!  I really enjoyed having a FREE guide and FREE transportation.  haha

Please check it out here for details.   This is the tour we did, I think. I know there are prices for not Transit-ers but that's not the amount you pay if you are in-transit.  Definitely worth looking into!
