Welcome to Seoul - you might be wondering, where on earth do I start? 

You’ll join one of our Seoul hosts as they help you orientate yourself in the South Korean capital so that you’ll be able to venture forth in complete confidence.

Depending on what you’d like to do, they could help you get to grips with the stellar public transport system, take you around to a few sights, or simply cruise around a quirky neighbourhood with you, showing you its highlights and local haunts.

Now would be a great time to ask any questions you have about exploring the city and you’ll find your host to be a treasure trove of local knowledge.

Where to eat? They’ve got suggestions. Where to stay? They’ve got you covered. Any cultural dos and don’ts? They’ll help you out there too.
