HELP, please, Korea experts! Korea/Seoul for 3 days?

Jump to last reply

We had not planned to go anywhere for the upcoming Chinese holiday, but now that it's just around the corner, are thinking about heading to Korea.

The official holiday is all I can take, so we will arrive late Monday night, have all day Tuesday, all day Wednesday, and half of Thursday.

Any advice on an itinerary? With a tight schedule like this, I'd probably pick 2 - 3 sights/activities for each full day (less if one is a half-day excursion, obviously), then we can cut back or add on once we're there & see how we feel.

Not too interested in markets, unless they're of the antique/craft variety. Also not too interested in hiking (well, my husband might be, but *I'm* not, and since I'm the one planning the trip . . . )

Here are thoughts so far:

We're very interested in visiting the DMZ - I think there is a half-day tour version.

I've checked out a couple of websites with pictures and reviews of the traditional village near Seoul, and it sounds & looks a bit Disneyesque. Is there any REAL small village we might be able to take a 1 or 1.5 day trip to (out of Seoul)?

We're not likely to go back to Korea anytime in the next couple of years - is Gyeong-Ju worth a day trip considering our limited time?

Any particular nightime river cruise we should take?

I also found some information about the Hyundai Seolbongho cruise to the "diamond" mountains - 2 days - might be interesting for something different (?). The foliage is supposed to be stunning in the Fall.

Advice, comments, suggestions? Thank you!
