After a three month trial run, the Seo-gu Office will officially start the tour bus service from July 2015.  The tour fee is 10,000 won per person.

Seo-gu once served as the downtown core of the city, and was the location of the Provisional Government Building for the central government during the Korean War. As a historically significant area, these tours will be able to vividly show traces of Korea’s modern and contemporary history.
