Description

Blue House
The "Blue House" is the official residence of the Korean president, easily distinguished by its beautiful blue tiles. It serves as the center of Korean politics, and its blue tiles and smooth roof are in beautiful harmony with Mount Bugaksan behind.

Gyeongbokgung Palace
Gyeonbokgung Palace was erected during the reign of King Taejo, founder of Korea's final kingdom, the Joseon Dynasty (1392 - 1910). Although it was largely destroyed during the Japanese invasion in 1592, it was reconstructed in 1868 and is surrounded by four impressive gates.

National Folk Museum
Located within the grounds of Gyeonbokgung Palace, the National Folk Museum exhibits the traditional life of Koreans from across the country. Displays on traditional farming methods, hunting, weaving and cooking, reflect the lifestyles of both peasants and the aristocracy.

Jogyesa Temple
The Jogyesa Temple is a sacred Zen Buddhism site in Korea. Its easy accessibility from the city has made it one of the most popular temples in the region and offers tranquil respite from the bustle of Seoul.

Korean Folk Village
The Korean Folk Village houses an extensive collection of Korean cultural artefacts, allowing both domestic and international visitors to explore the cultural legacy of the country. Designed to reflect both the wisdom and spirit of Korean ancestors, it is an interactive, open-air learning place for successive generations to explore a history dating back more than 5,000 years. From the Kabo Peasant War (1894) to the Japanese invasion of Korea (1910 - 1945) and the Korean War (1950 - 1953), the exhibits illustrate the events that have shaped the Korean society today.
