Take a stroll through South Korean history during this full-day tour of the Folk Village and Namdeamun Market.

Depart the pier in Inchon for the scenic 1-hour and 20-minute drive to the Korean Folk Village, an open-air museum that encapsulates traditional life during the Joseon Dynasty (1700s to 1910). This authentic working village is comprised of approximately 250 traditional-style structures in which artisans, farmers, and shamans practice and preserve traditions that are no longer part of daily life.

During your tour, you will visit the potter's studio, brewery, blacksmith shop, water mill, marketplace, typical farmer's dwelling, a Confucian school, middle-class society house, and more. You will also have an opportunity to observe acrobatic tightrope walking, a farmer's band and dance, traditional wedding ceremony and some of the more than 30,000 household items from various regions of Korea.

After a traditional Korean lunch in the Folk Village, you will continue on for the 1-hour and 10-minute drive to Seoul, where you will find an eclectic blend of modern skyscrapers and superhighways combined with majestic ancient palaces, temples, city gates and gardens. Upon arrival, you will proceed to the center of Seoul for a visit to the Western-styled Namdaemun Market, Korea's biggest traditional market for clothing, daily goods, kitchenware, and local and imported products. Some time will be made available to browse through the market at your leisure.

Following your visit, you will rejoin your coach for the scenic drive past the Namsan Mountain en route to the pier and ship.

Please note: The drive between Inchon and Seoul will take more than an hour in each direction. This tour involves a total of approximately 1 mile of walking. Outdoor presentations/performances such as the farmers' band and tight-rope walking, may be canceled without notice due to inclement weather conditions.
