About Your Trip

Embrace the culture and culinary secrets of South Korea as you journey through Seoul, the nation’s bustling capital city. Your full-day, family-friendly outing starts at Cheong Wa Dae — commonly called the Blue House — for a tour of the Korean presidential residence. Then, you'll begin your introduction to local cuisine with a fun cooking class, followed by lunch featuring bulgogi (a classic dish of grilled marinated beef) and japchae (stir-fried glass noodles and vegetables).

In the afternoon, you'll head to Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), a massive complex known for architecturally impressive buildings, exhibition halls and the Dongdaemun History & Culture Park. You’ll also see “The Painters: HERO.” During this avant-garde performance — a blend of visual effects, mime, dance and comedy — skilled artists will create mesmerizing drawings and paintings right before your eyes. End your adventure with a dinner of marinated grilled pork ribs and another local specialty: haemul pajeon (seafood pancakes).

The following day is all yours to discover your favorite destinations in Seoul at your own pace.

What we love:
• During South Korea’s Joseon Dynasty, which lasted nearly 500 years starting in the late 1300s, bulgogi was a dish prepared primarily for nobility and the wealthy.
• If you love shopping, Seoul is the place for you! The city is full of vibrant markets selling items of all kinds — meat, seafood, gadgets, clothing, souvenirs and much more.
• Seafood pancakes are a popular snack in Korea, made from savory batter, green onions and any combination of seafood.
