Seoul Tower, Banpo Bridge, Cheonggyecheon stream. Then the shopping meccas Myeongdong, Insadong, Ewha University Shopping St., Namdaemun, Dongdaenum. Not sure if possible War Memorial, Han River Cruise and Team Lab in Lotte World. Is it possible for you to do an itenerary so it will be efficient in terms of time , travel and cost?
