Starting October 1, Discover Seoul Pass will expand its free admission and discount benefits to cover up to 100 major tourist attractions in Seoul. Discover Seoul Pass is a foreigner-exclusive tourist card that allows free admission to Seoul’s major attractions within 24, 48, or 72 hours. The pass also functions as a Tmoney card, allowing cardholders to load money and use it as a method of payment.
Noteworthy attractions added on to the free admission list are Lotte World, Hangang River Cruise, and Statis Museum. In addition, cardholders can look forward to receiving discount benefits at places that offer one-day classes and duty free shops.
Discover Seoul Pass can be purchased online from the card’s official website and redeemed offline at Incheon International Airport (Terminal 1 & 2), Gimpo International Airport, and Myeong-dong Tourist Information Center. Travelers who prefer to make an offline purchase can do so at the Myeong-dong Tourist Information Center.
In 2020, a new type of tourist card similar to the Discover Seoul Pass will be released to offer unlimited rides on designated subway sections from lines 1 to 9.
