One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
Explore Seoul's surroundings by going to DMZ Haemaru Village (in Paju) and Icheon Termeden (in Icheon). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Gyeongbokgung Palace, take a stroll through Bukchon Hanok Village, don't miss a visit to Insadong, and take some stellar pictures from N Seoul Tower.

Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
Tokyo is known for historic sites, shopping, parks, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, have some family-friendly fun at Owl cafe Akiba Fukurou, admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, and ponder the world of politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings.

Traveling by flight from Seoul to Tokyo takes 5.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of car and ferry. In August in Tokyo, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 30th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
