Seoul — 15 nights

One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
Take a break from the city and head to Bukhansan National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. For shopping fun, head to Myeongdong Shopping Street or GOTO Mall. Change things up with these side-trips from Seoul: Ilsan Lake Park (in Goyang), Suwon (Dongbukgongsimdon & Hwaseong Fortress) and Songdo Central Park (in Incheon). There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Gyeongbokgung Palace, see the interesting displays at Trickeye Museum Seoul, get engrossed in the history at Seoul Museum of History, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Changgyeonggung Palace.
