Our first short stop is Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) which is a blend of traditional buildings, relics and cutting-edge modern multicultural facilities.
Next, we'll visit the Cheonggyecheon Stream, a haven of natural beauty located within the metropolitan city of Seoul. Before its restoration, it existed only as a neglected watercourse hidden by an overpass. Today, the "Rhythmic Wall Stream" as it is also known, is lined with fine marble and sculptures.
We'll make a stop at Unhyungung Royal Residence, which was the home of young Gojong, who later became the Emperor of Korea during the Joseon Dynasty. The residence, under the orders of Queen Mother Jo was renovated into a grand, palace-like home. The Unhyungung, which means "small palace" is located right in the middle of the business district of Jongno-gu.

Next, we'll visit Tongin Traditional Market and enjoy traditional food with traditional coin, Yeopjeon. Consists of 75 stores, most of which are restaurants and grocery stores.
We will then continue to Trick eye Ice Museum is an art gallery with paintings created using techniques that give each 2D art piece the illusion of being in 3D. Instead of merely viewing paintings you can interact with the paintings, posing yourself just right so that you look as if you are part of the original work.
After the visit to Cosmetic Store at Seokpajeong – Cost effective cosmetic products galore!
Next we will move on to Bukchon Hanok Village is full of traditional Hanokhomes. It is a place that perfectly embodies the heritage and culture of South Korea.
