The Discover Seoul Pass is now improved with more benefits and features. The Seoul Tourism Organisation and the Seoul Metropolitan Government have worked really hard in planning and designing the new tourist pass.
The tourists will now have an upgraded pass offering easy access to the prime destinations in the city for one set price. Pay once, and you will have free admission to 22 attractions! Besides, there will be other facilities such as duty-free shopping, transportation around the city, tour services, and discounts to theatre performances.
Visitors can buy the pass at the Incheon International Airport. However, it is available at various outlets throughout the city. So, visitors can purchase it from literally anywhere and anytime. You can choose from two options – a 24-hour or a 48-hour pass, priced at 39,900 (approx. A$45) and 55,000 (approx. A$62) Korean won respectively. Visit Discover Seoul Pass if you want to get more information.

The Seoul City Government has also arranged for Seoul Walking Tours for the tourists at completely free of charge! Skilled multilingual guides will show you the way through the best sites including the brand new Seollu7017, hanok village of Bukchon, royal palaces, and more. You can take these trips at free of charge, but paying a tip to the guide is a courtesy.
The iTour Seoul, a mobile app, is a great addition to the tourism of the South Korea’s capital city. It was first launched in 2009, but the new version has many upgraded features. It now takes just a few taps on the phone’s screen to get information about events, festivals, transportation schedules, artistic performances, hotel reservations, recommended attractions, and more.
