Discover Seoul Pass allows you to enjoy Seoul for 24 hours!

The Seoul Metropolitan Government and the Seoul Tourism Organization have put a lot of time and effort into designing the ultimate tourist pass especially for independent tourists for Seoul!

With Discover Seoul Pass, you may visit any of Seoul’s 16 designated tourist attractions over a period of 24 hours and the pass comes with a map. The Discover Seoul Pass also functions as a transit card (T-money, for paying the subway, the bus, the taxi) and for paying items at the convenience stores, Starbucks, and others. The transit card function does not expire and can be used throughout your stay in Seoul.

The Discover Seoul Pass users can also get a 10 – 20% discount on tickets on the Seoul City Tour Bus’s many tour courses.

Is it possible visit the 16 attractions within 24 hours?

It is possible! Plan your itinerary well by area, maximize your time, and visit the attractions first that opens the earliest and with the latest closing times (like N.Seoul Tower and Grevin Museum) later in the day so that you can fit in all 16 attractions in 24 hours.
