What you'll do

You’ll meet up with your host and get sightseeing, making the most of the time you have in South Korea’s capital. You could follow the crowd and see glamorous Gangnam from the top of the Lotte World Tower (all 1820ft of it), or head down to street level to take in the epic scale of malls like COEX, and the sheer luxury of Apgujeong, the most expensive slice of Seoul’s sultriest suburb. You’ll also discover culinary hotspots like Itaewon, where the world’s favorite flavors fuse along Gyeongnidan Street, a thriving hub of multinational cuisine. If you’d prefer to head off the beaten path, why not ask your host to take you to hidden gems like Sangsu, where indie vibes meet pub crawls and street food.

Your host will also lead you to hidden gems like Ikseon, a burgeoning hipster hangout lined with 100-year-old homes that now serve as trendy boutiques and classy cafes.
