A trip to Seoul is usually a once in a lifetime experience so this means you have to make the most of every moment.
Lucky for you if you’re going to Korea soon, the Seoul Metropolitan Government and Seoul Tourism Organization launched the “Discover Seoul Pass” for foreigners visiting or staying in Seoul and they’re offering 2 free passes to Soompiers!
Discover Seoul Pass is a 1-day tourist pass that gives you access to 16 major tourist attractions and expires 24 hours after the first use. The 16 attractions are: ▲Gyeongbokgung ▲Changdeokgung ▲ Changgyeonggung ▲Deoksugung ▲ Jongmyo ▲ Seodaemun Prison History Hall ▲ Samsung Art Gallery ‘Leeum’ ▲ National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul ▲ Museum Kimchikan ▲ N Seoul Tower Observatory Deck ▲ MBC World ▲ K-Live Dongdaemun ▲Trick eye museum ▲ Grevin Museum ▲ Alive Museum ▲ Figure Museum W
Price of the pass is 39,900 won, over 70% cheaper than the total admission fees to all 16 tourism attractions which adds up to 152,000 won. Therefore even if tourists visit only a few of the locations out of 16, they are able to recover the cost of the pass. Also, you don’t have to wait in line when you visit Gyeongbokgung or N Seoul Tower when you hold this pass, and don’t need a reservation for MBC World and K-Live Dongdaemun!
This pass can be also reloaded with cash during your stay and used during future visits as well for taking public transportation and payment at convenience stores. You can buy the pass from various locations: Incheon Airport KEB bank, money changer (5 locations), CU convenient stores (3 locations), Myeongdong Tourism Information Center, KEB Hana Bank Hongik University Station Branch, Seoul City tour Bus ticket booths in front of Gwanghwamun and DDP, Tourist Information Center at Hongik Univ. and Dongdaemun.
