Hello everyone. My Korean name is Sangdon Lee and my English name is Tommy. My major is tourism management.
I like traveling and meeting other foreign friends because I can learn and think about a lot of different cultures when I talk with them. Because of my major, I traveled a lot of areas in Korea and overseas.
My hobbies are traveling, taking pictures and running If you guys also have the same hobbies as me we can share our stories. The most important point is that I can give good pictures to my tourmates because I’m good at taking pictures.

Food / Culture
First, Gwanghwanum & Gteongbokgung Palace
We can all know about history and culture of Korea.
First, we will meet at Gwanghwamun Gate station at Exit 4 and take pictures with the statues of King Sejong the Great and Admiral Yi Sun-shin. As you know King Sejong and Yi sun-shin represent great men in history. After that, we will go to Gyeongbokgung Palace to take a tour and to take pictures. Moreover, I’ll explain about the history briefly.
Next, we will go to Samcheong-dong to take a look around and to have dinner, because there is a lot of traditional and famous restaurants.
So we will have dinner in Hangaram restaurant. This restaurant is on Samcheong-dong street. There are a lot of Korean traditional foods that’s why we will order the set menu with Bulgogi. If you don’t want this menu you can choose another one.
After having dinner we will go to Samcheong-dong café street to drink coffee. The café is located near the restaurant. The café’s name is Osulloc. I choose this café because the café’s atmosphere is great and you can see traditional designs there.
Third, Insadong & Cheonggye stream
After we drink coffee we will go to Insa-dong for a tour. We can see many Korean traditional goods. Insa-dong is also one of the most popular places for foreigners. Finally, we will go to Cheonggye stream and take a walk near the stream while we look at the night view. The tour will end at Cheonggye stream after our walk.
