No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

123 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.

Insadong has loads of shops and galleries, loads of coffee houses and restaurants. The palaces are a shortish walk away as is the Hanok area which is also worth the trip.

One of my favorite areas to shop! There's a shopping street lined with shops selling all kinds of traditional Korean crafts, gifts, and souvenir type items, and the prices were much lower than what you'd find in other areas. I particularly loved the little handcrafted purses. I bought several for my lady friends and they were the perfect size to fill with face masks and other goodies. There is a fun and lovely three story shopping center called 'SS' with bright yellow walls that features a ton of super fun art installations and a lot of really cool shops. I visited this location several times because it was so cool and I loved the shops. At the top of it is the infamous 'poop; themed cafe where you can get a variety of toilet inspired desserts. It wasn't for me but I enjoyed giving it a peek. This area is definitely a must-visit if you like art and/or like to shop.
