Despite the persecutions and oppression that followed, the new religion evolved from a unique history of voluntarily importing Christian missionaries from China.

The fertile soils of Jeolla Province and gathering of diverse products from all around into the central Jeonju made this city a gastronomic capital of Korea.

Day 3: Seoul

Pass By: Bukchon Hanok Village, 37, Gyedong-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul 03059 South Korea
Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. We will go stroll in this labyrinth of traditional homes cramped together, sharing walls. Created by the first city-planner of Korea, these intimate structures will delight you as you discover your way around the hillside village.

Stop At: Changdeokgung Palace, 99, Yulgok-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul 03072 South Korea
Changdeokgung Palace was the second grand royal villa built in 1405. It was the principal palace for many kings of Joseon Dynasty, and is the most well-preserved of their five remaining palaces.

This palace is considered as a historically significant attraction that represents the beauty of Korea. Along with the beauty of Huwon, the Secret Garden, Changdeokgung Palace was chosen as the UNESCO World Heritage in 1997.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Insadong, Insa-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul South Korea
Insa-dong, located in the heart of the city, is an important place where old but precious and traditional goods are on display. There is one main road in Insa-dong with alleys on each side. Within these alleys are galleries, traditional restaurants, teahouses, and cafes.

The galleries are the heartbeat of Insa-dong. There are about 100 galleries in the area and you can see every example of traditional Korean fine art from paintings to sculptures. Traditional craft stores dealing with calligraphy, ceramics, embroidery, and stamps are interesting complement to galleries.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Haneul Park, 95, Haneulgongwon-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul 03900 South Korea
Haneul Park (Sky Park) is full of lush eulalia and is home to the Seoul Silver Grass Festival, held every year in October when the grass is in full bloom. Originally a site of waste disposal, the area was revitalized in commemoration of 2002 World Cup. What puts this park different than others is that the park is run only by renewable natural energy, mostly through windmills. Many migrant birds pass here every year on their way south.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Kwangjang Market, 88, Changgyeonggung-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul 03195 South Korea
Let's try some street food! Gwangjang Market was the first permanent market in Korea and it continues to thrive today. The second floor of the market is filled with silk, satin, and linen bed-sheet stores, which are the largest and most famous in Seoul.

Many of the stores in the area even have their own factories supplying fabrics to the Namdaemun Market, Pyoung Hwa Market, and even to some department stores. Even though the goods are not brand-name products, the wide selection of high quality goods at inexpensive prices makes it an enjoyable shopping experience.

However, the highlight of this market is not the fabrics. The fascinating part is discovering the animated food stalls, also popularized among foreigners by a recent Neflix show. We will go sampling some of the best Korean street foods here. The specialties in this market are octopus tartar and mung-bean pancakes. You will also be introduced to eccentric Korean foods such as steamed pork feet, blood sausage, and spicy chicken feet.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: N Seoul Tower, 105 Namsangongwon-gil, Yongsan 2(i)ga-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, South Korea
Take in the breathtaking 360-degree view of the Seoul Metropolis! The top of the tower is at almost 480m above sea level, including Namsan Mountain(243m) and the tower’s own height(236.7m).

The tower was first established as a broadcast tower to send out TV and radio signals in 1969. As of now, it has become one of the representative landmarks and multi-cultural venues in Seoul. At the tower, you can check out other highlights including the famous 'Locks of Love' and ancient beacon mounds.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Myeongdong Shopping Street, Jung-gu, Seoul South Korea
Myeong-dong is one of the primary shopping districts in Seoul. Many brand name shops and department stores line the streets and alleys. Common products for sale include clothes, shoes, cosmetics and accessories. Unlike Namdaemun or Dongdaemun, many designer brands are sold in Myeong-dong.

The streets are filled with abundance of street food vendors. Enjoy your evening in this town, which seems to have forgotten the night.
