When you travel, you want to experience more than just what your travel guide books can show you. We have partnered up with My Real Trip, a Korean company that connects local people with travelers worldwide. The first tour that we are introducing is a tour of Jong-no with Bomi Lee. Please find more information about it below, through Bomi’s own introduction!
Bo Mi Lee:
Hi. This is Bo Mi Lee from an amazingly beautiful city Seoul, South Korea. People call me either Bomi or SuperBom. I am a 23 year old student from Ewha Womans University, majoring in Sociology. Since freshman in college, I have been interested in offering city tours to people and found it a super exciting and meaningful work. I have been just so occupied with travelling around Seoul and gathering information of various places which even Seoulians do not know much about. Because I strongly believe that Seoul is one of the most praiseworthy places for city trip, I want to be the lucky one who can explain the inner and outer beauty of Seoul in my OWN way, better than any other people. If you see me in person, you will know what I am talking about. You will find out that I am the most hilarious, energetic, funny and friendly guide AND friend in Seoul, South Korea. My purpose of doing this is not just escorting you around Seoul. My goal is to make you have fun, never forget about what you will be experiencing in this incredibly charming city, AND, most importantly, fall in love with its history and culture FOREVER.
Brief introduction of the tour:
A theme of this tour is THE BEAUTY OF JONGNO. If you are a fan of Seoul, then you probably would have heard of GyeongBok Palace, SamCheon-Dong, Insa-Dong, AND N Seoul Tower.
If you google these places, you will find out that they are the MUST tourist attractions in Seoul. Let me give you brief information:
GyeongBok Palace: A biggest and most beautiful palace in Korea which has more than 500 years of history.
SamCheon-Dong & InSa-Dong: Famous places for tea house, galleries, souvenir shops, restaurants, intimate roads and etc.
N Seoul Tower: A highest Tower which delivers TV and radio broadcasting in the cities. It is also used as a complex culture space open to everyone.
I am not done YET!
As I mentioned in my profile, my purpose is not only helping you to get to these place. My job is to give you more than that. I want to show you the “beauty” of Seoul, especially the INNER beauty. I assume that you also do not want to be so busy talking pictures and saying “WOW”s and that’s all you remember when you go back to your country, do you?
GyeongBok Palace is not just a place which has huge, oriental buildings but a place in which all the architectures and structures have interesting meanings and history. What about Samcheon-Dong, InSa-Dong, and N Seoul Tower? The pictures and information posted up on the internet are not telling you everything the places actually HAVE. I am pretty much sure that there are more priceless things you will feel with your heart! And, most importantly, I wish your trip be more like a friendly, Bomi-like tour, literally saying that I will be your friend not only tour guide. I want to share my story and I am SO ready to listen to yours as well. Do you want to know more about THE BEAUTY OF JONGNO? By right this moment, you should!
