Start the day with a visit to Changdeok­gung, Seoul’s most serene royal palace. With its lov­ingly-pre­served ar­chi­tec­ture and care­fully-main­tained grounds – in­clud­ing the lush royal get­away known as the ‘Se­cret Gar­den’– you’ll have no trou­ble un­der­stand­ing why Changdeok­gung is to­day a UNESCO World Her­itage site.

Take an Ar­tee pedi­cab ride through the old al­leys of Buk­chon Hanok Vil­lage, com­prised of about 900 hanok (tra­di­tional Korean houses), and learn the sto­ries and his­toric val­ues of the vil­lage’s less trod­den path­ways. End the guided tour in Sam­cheong­dong, a dis­trict of north­ern Seoul well known for its var­i­ous art mu­se­ums, gal­leries and shops. En­joy lunch in one of its many restau­rants or trendy cafes of­fer­ing an eclec­tic range of cui­sine.
