Seoul City Tour Bus Night View Course
Price starts at Php 466.00

-Take a nice double-decker open bus and enjoy the night view in Seoul. The famous attractions for this course are Namsan Mountain and the view of Han river.
– If you are more of a night person, I would recommend you to choose this instead of the day time tour. Also, I would say that this itinerary is a different experience as you can see the beauty of Seoul at night.
