Seoul runs free subway tours
Published on Jul 27, 2010
Seoul began pilot testing a new ‘Subway City Guide’ programme this month, helping visitors to navigate the city’s sites. It is designed to provide a convenient and economical tour of cultural sites and tourist spots located near subway stations. The government said it hopes the programme would be enjoyed by both locals and foreigners, noting that the tour, although it may be short, is a fully packed one. Seoul City is offering four types of courses to cater to all travellers: the physically challenged, senior citizens, foreigners and families. Subway tours are free, participants just have to be ready to pay for the admission fees at the various sites. Those who are interested in the tours can register through the Seoul Metropolitan Government home page. The maximum number of tourists per course ranges from five to twenty. The four-hour tour programs run from Tuesday to Friday starting at 1:30 pm.
