The best way to see popular tourist destinations within a limited time frame is to use the City Tour Bus, which stops at major spots throughout the city. The Seoul City Tour Bus is designed as an effective transit solution that allows its patrons to hop from destination to destination.

The Seoul City Tour Bus is a great mode of transportation whether you are visiting from abroad or planning a trip to Seoul from a closer location. One ticket will grant you access to all its routes throughout the day. Simply get off at your chosen attraction, tour the area, and catch the next bus according to the bus schedule to continue your trip.
