Ok...this isn't quite in Seoul but it starts in Seoul and ends in Seoul so I guess that counts?!
How does a day trip to Jeonju sound? Pretty good!
The best part? Transport to and from Jeonju is free. Yup, it's free. All you need to claim your free tickets is a foreign passport.
The exclusive free shuttle bus for foreign passport holders travels between Seoul and Jeonju and will continue to operate until the end of 2014.
The Seoul-Jeonbuk shuttle bus that operated last year to promote ‘Visit Jeonbuk Year’ contributed significantly to improving the area’s tourism. As a result, Jeollabuk-do decided to offer a free shuttle bus service to run between Seoul and the most popular city in Jeollabuk-do among tourists. The shuttle runs a round-trip service three times a week (Fri, Sat, Sun).
Jeonju is a great day out. It's home of iconic Korean dish Bibimbap, there's no place better to eat it!

- Eat Bibimbap!
- Visit the Jeonju Folk Village (Jeonju Hanok Village[전주한옥마을])
- Visit Pungnammun Gate [풍남문]
- Visit Gyeonggijeon Shrine [경기전]
