    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Tapgol Park, Jongno 2-ga, Jongno-gu, Seoul South Korea

    Birthplace of Korean independence and suicide spot for jilted lovers

    Pass By: Cheonggyecheon Stream, Seoul South Korea

    In 2005, this was revived after being taken over by an elevated highway. Lots of stories take place here and near bodies of water.

    Stop At: Gyeonghuigung Palace, 1-126 Sinmunno 2-ga, Jongno-gu, Seoul 110-062 South Korea

    (Tues-Fri) Regular & Extended Editions

    (Sat-Sun) Extended Edition only | The most haunted palace in Korea.


    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Constitutional Court of Korea, 15 Bukchon-ro, Jae-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea

    (Tues-Fri) Extended Edition only

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Pass By: Pimatgol Alley, 32 Donhwamun-ro 5-gil, Jongno 1(il).2(i).3(sam).4(sa), Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea

    The alley regular people took to avoid aristocrats on their horses. Mostly abandoned now due to city officials who would rather tear down any signs that Korea was once poor, we walk down what's left of it and learn how important it was to Korea's democracy.

    Pass By: Jonggak Avenue of Youth, 84-15 Jongno 2-ga, Jongno-gu, Seoul South Korea

    We pass through the Avenue of Youth in Jongno, a vibrant nightlife area that hasn't yet been overrun by tourists and the Gangnam locusts.

    I’m sure the Ghost Bus Tour runs 365 days in a year. Just check for availability @ Trip Advisor website. Really fun & informative.

    There are some stories that are sexual and violent. If you're okay with that then it's no problem.
