Seoul Storytelling Tour

If you are planning your study abroad trip, you might want to see if there are any similar programs organized for tourists there.  Many cities or foreign countries arrange events for their tourists to show them some of the sights in a guided fashion.  Some are even free!  Usually, you can contact the national/city tourism office to see if anything is going on near your destination. **DB

I so wish I could take my mom to do this, the tour sounds like a lot of fun!

Seoul Metropolitan Government has established the Seoul Storytelling Mission Tour, which runs from July 27 to October 2014. There is a new tour every week, and there will be English, Chinese, and Japanese variations.  

Once every week, international tourists or foreign residents can participate in the tour as it slowly walks them through many of the city’s attractions.  Stops include Dongdaemun History & Culture Park (beautiful area), Gwanghwamun Square (best palace in the city), Yeouido Hangang Park (picnic heaven), and others.  As part of the event, each participant will be given various assignments such as photographing certain locations.  So it’s kind of like a scavenger hunt!

Sign up quick!  Only the first 100 people to register can participate!
