The Discover Seoul Pass is the result of an initiative of the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the Seoul Tourism Organization to better address the needs of free independent tourists.

Even if the free independent tourists came to visit Seoul on their own, was there a way they could visit a variety of good attractions without feeling the pinch on their wallets?

Their answer was to enable the travelers to freely customize their Seoul trip that would fit their schedules and preference through the pass. The Discover Seoul Pass includes 16 of Seoul's biggest landmarks as well as a selection of historical, cultural, and hallyu (Korean Wave) attractions.

When you purchase the pass, you will get access to admission tickets worth more than 150,000 won.

Moreover, the pass can also serve as transit cards that can be used as soon as they have been purchased/topped-up. Its use as admission tickets is activated as soon as you visit any one of the 16 Seoul attractions, which can be visited once a day within 24 hours.

With just one card, you can visit 16 attractions which carefully selected by Seoul City in the period of 24 hours. Moreover, travelers can use the pass as a transit card (Tmoney), charging it as much as needed, and pay for the subway, bus, or taxi with convenience.

○ Price : 39,900 won
