While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations.

Experience Seoul's unique blend of old and new on this Urban Adventure that takes in markets, bridges, temples and tea shops! As one of Asia's up-and-coming cities, Seoul is an interesting city full of delights, yet still remains off the mass tourism radar. Meet a local guide to find out the hidden secrets and local hangouts of this special city, while walking the streets, stopping to visit famous (and not so famous) places of interest. Start the day at Cheonggyecheon Plaza, with its picturesque stream, historic stone bridges and uniquely decorated walls.
Take a walk through Jongno, one of central Seoul's oldest areas, then head to Jogyesa - Seoul's cultural epicentre. While here, admire an ancient tree that has stood for more than 500 years - it's such a rarity that it's officially protected by the local government. Continue the tour by walking to Insa-dong, an area abounding in Korean culture, cuisine and tradition. Visit an authentic tea shop to sample soothing teas before strolling to a market where traditional crafts and clothing offer quality souvenir ideas at top prices.
Finish the adventure by taking the opportunity to feast on some tasty Korean cuisine. Korean food is one of the world's best kept secrets, so don't miss the chance to try some. Your guide will let you know the best place to try local delicacies like Bibimbap or Jeon. Otherwise, feel free to explore the rest of the city yourself; whether you're discovering new territory or returning to your favourite spots for another look, Seoul is a surprising city.
