No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

124 reviews
Enjoy the highlights of the DMZ and get back to Seoul in time for lunch on a guided group tour. Listen to immersive commentary during visits to Imjingak Park, Dora Observatory, and other important landmarks. Have your camera ready for an unobstructed view of one of the world's most famous demilitarized zones. Best of all, this excursion does not include unnecessary shopping stops that other tours add on, which saves you valuable vacation time.

Recommended by a local to visit which turns out to be one of the most memorable moment of our trip. The area is made up of connecting alleys which makes you feel like you are in a maze but there's something good waiting for you at every turn. Quaint little shops and cafes converted from ancient architectures filled up the streets, displaying a perfect blend of modern and history in the heart of Seoul.

We took a leisurely walk from our hotel near Euljiro 3-ga to Ikseon-dong Hanok Street. It is relatively easy to locate. You can use NaverMap to guide you there as google map doesn’t work well in South Korea. Loads of instagram worthy spots and cafes. There is a nice little hotteok stall near Seine Dessert. Seine Dessert is another cute little cafe with pretty desserts and nice and different European themed interior on each floor. Apart from Hotteok, we tried the pancake at Flipper’s. How was the pancake? Good, but i still prefer Pauline Pancake. Apart from Cafes, there are also bakeries and shops that sells hats, accessories and flowers. You can spend some good 2 hours in this area.

Tiny alley ways lead you to various stores. That's about all there was to this place. It would be a fun place to go as a small group, but as a solo traveler on this date of visit, I didn't find too many places to eat that could accommodate me as the lines were long, but tables are configured for parties of 2 or more. One of the reasons to visit was that it was near other large must visit attractions in Seoul, so taking an hour to swing by here is not that big of a deal.

We were recommended to tour this area by another tourist who was also visiting the Bukchon village. Surprisingly enough, it was situated relatively close to our hotel. It is an interesting area filled with trendy shops, eateries and cafes. Apparently this is one of Seoul's oldest neighborhoods that dates back to the 1920's and many of the traditional old style hanoks have been renovated to house trendy eateries and boutiques. One can still see traditional roof lines and careful restoration of traditional buildings in this area. It has narrow laneways and it doesn't take much for the area to get overcrowded. If you like people watching and visiting trendy shops, you can spend an indefinite period of time here.
