From time-honored rituals to the ultra-modern K-Pop scene, South Korea offers a rich tapestry of cultural contrast that serves as an intoxicating mix for travelers. Whether sampling gastronomic delights, marveling over ancient Buddhist temples, or shopping for traditional handicrafts, visitors to Seoul will find plenty of ways to discover the country's culture.

Cultural Spots in Seoul
South Korea's vibrant capital is its cultural epicenter with sightseeing tours offering ample opportunities to discover the city's rich heritage.

Experience local life at the lively Namdaemun Market, or explore the stylish and hip Gangnam District. Learn about the country's rich history and the reign of the Joseon Dynasty, and enjoy long-standing traditions such as the changing of the guards at Gyeongbokgung Palace.

Cultural Shows in Seoul
Immerse yourself in South Korean culture with a memorable evening show in Seoul. Discover the traditional art of samul nori music at the hilarious Nanta comedy show, or experience the electric atmosphere of a live K-Pop hologram concert.

Cultural Food Experiences in Seoul
The surprising flavors and delicacies of Korean cuisine make Seoul a top destination for adventurous foodies. Tuck into famous specialties like kimchi, Korean barbecue, and rice wine on an evening tasting tour, or uncover the secrets of traditional dishes with a visit to the local market before a cooking class in a Korean-style house.

Cultural Activities Beyond Seoul
There's plenty to see in South Korea beyond Seoul, but the hottest new destination is Pyeongchang in the Gangwon Province, the host of the 2018 Winter Olympics. Swap city life for the ski slopes on a skiing tour to Yongpyong Resort, or head to nearby Mt Seoraksan to ride a cable car up to Gwongeumseong peak and visit the magnificent Sinheungsa Temple.
