Seoul, the capital of Korea, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Korea. Packed with countless sights to see and places to visit such as the ancient palaces, traditional markets, and high-end shopping districts, Seoul is a city with so much to offer that you might not know where to start. To get the most out of your stay, visit some of Seoul's most famous attractions by taking a trip aboard the Seoul City Tour Bus, which offers four unique courses. The Seoul Panorama Course circles Seoul's major tourist attractions, while the Downtown/Palace Course covers the famous Cheonggyecheon Stream and the royal palaces.
