What you'll do

Scare yourself silly on a guided nighttime tour of Seoul’s spookiest, goriest and most haunted locations.

Discover the dark side of Seoul with Go City®

  • With us, there are no fees on the day - all you've got to do is show your pass!
  • Learn about Korea’s ghostlore, folk beliefs and urban legends on a 90-minute tour of Seoul’s spookiest places.
  • This tour has a particular focus on history and only takes place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays 
  • Hear about haunted houses, the ghosts of Gyeonghui Palace and mythical monsters that stalk the streets at night.

This fun tour is full of great myths, legends and humorous anecdotes about Korea’s ghost culture.

It’s a side of Seoul you won’t read about in the tourist brochures; a city where dark alleys bear the scars of medieval massacres, gods hide in wells and wandering spirits haunt the corridors of Gyeonghui Palace, somewhat at odds with this 17th-century mansion’s name which translates literally as the Place of Serene Harmony.

Your guide will bring Korea’s folklore, ghostly tales and urban legends to life with a lively narrative that takes you through an epic 600 years of hauntings and explains why these stories are important in Korean culture. Just keep your eyes peeled for strange, uninvited guests tagging along beside you on the tour…
