Know More about this tourAfter meeting at Anguk subway Station, your group is led by a historian on a meandering walking tour that winds through alleyways and places the tourism organization would rather you not see. Tales are told throughout the tour by the historian, and traditional tokens of protection will be given to ladies to protect them from Japanese ghosts.
After meeting, the tour heads straight to the site where Prince Suyang slaughtered so many of his king nephew's men that they had to burn area down to get rid of the stench. Then it's off to the grounds of Korea's first western hospital that had to be scrubbed down before use because the former occupants all got slaughtered inside.
After that, cross the street built by the Japanese colonials, that doubled as a means of psychological warfare, before going to Unhyeongung, a minor palace that was last occupied by one of the most vile powerful men in the late Chosun dynaysty.
You next enter the Nagwon-dong neighborhood, where a restaurant was documented as being haunted by the police in the 1920s, followed by the Nagwon Arcade, which has an odd history from its inception. You will then fork off to Jongno 3-ga, the location of Seoul's most popular red light district in the 1960s, and meander to Tapgol Park, which was a popular place for suicides.
After a break for some snacks, street beers and street cocktails (not included), you take a sidestep into Pimatgol, a hidden alley with hidden secrets. Finally it's the Cheonggyecheon Stream, a modern tourist attraction which just a hundred years ago had many corpses floating down its waterways.
