Hi, my name is Yunwoo Kim. I’m a college student and I major in tourism. After I graduate, I want to be a tour guide. I think the role between tour guide and tour mate is quite similar. They all require people skills such as active and passionate personality. I am the person who suits the personality, so I have the confidence to be your great tour mate. Let’s make unforgettable experience together 🙂
4 hrs 30mins
Culture / Food
The theme of my tour is ‘quest’. I designed some missions to make special memories in special places. The quests are not that difficult. It’s the thing that makes your tour more fun.
We will visit 2 areas called ‘Seochon’ and ‘Bukchon’. ‘Seochon’ is located in the west of the Gyeongbok Palace. There are many shops that show Korean style structures. You can feel the traditional atmosphere in this area. ‘Bukchon’ is located in the north of the Insadong and Jongno. There are a Hanok village and Samchungdong street that you can feel the both of trendy and traditional Korean style street.
At first, we will meet outside of the Gyeongbokgung Subway Station (Line 3), exit 2. We will go to Tongin Market to have lunch. We can change money into brass coins. With that coins, we can buy Korean food as a cheap price. We’ll do the first quest in here. You’ll describe the food that you choose. Represent the tastes that you feel with various expressions!
Next, we are going to go to Seochon street and look around some traditional shops. The second quest starts in here. We will go to the video game shop where we can play the old games. We will do the battle with the scores. We will walk along the wall of Gyeongbokgung. We can see the Blue House on this way. (where the president lives.)
Next, we will have some dessert at ‘Bukchon Bingsoo’ in Samchungdong. The dessert is ice flakes with syrups, which is called ‘Bingsoo’in Korean.
After that, we will look around Hanok village. The last quest starts in here. You will take some pictures of the 3 spots of Hanok village. There are 8 spots that you can take best photos, so you will choose 3 spots to take some pictures. You will also choose the pose that you will take. In those 3 spots, you will take pictures with the same pose.
If you clear all of the quests during this tour, I’ll give you a special present for you! (The present is secret lol) Let’s go special quest tour together!
