Author Topic: Suggestion for Travelling with Children (4 and 6) and elderly grandma  (Read 5214 times)
Posts: 1

Hello, we are coming to Seoul for a few days on our way back from Vietnam in early January.  We have a diverse group going with an elderly grandma who is not able to walk too much and two young children (4 and 6).  Do you have suggestions of the best activities / sites to visit?

Some specific questions:
1) Wheelchair - do you know of a place we can rent a wheelchair?
2) DMZ - do you suggest visiting with young children?
3) Cultural music/dance show - Do you suggest a show that would not be too long for young ones to experience?
4) Palaces and Temples - any suggestions on the best to visit with young children? Lonely Planet suggests the National Museum of Korea and Folk Museum as more hands on. Would you agree/
5) Seoul City Bus Tour - We are thinking to take this tour one day. With the cold weather is this not a good idea?

Thanks in advance!

Here are answers to some of your questions (note that these are mainly my personal opinion):
2. DMZ - no, I don't suggest visiting with young children - very interesting for adults but can be boring for young children
3. Cultural music/dance shows:
NANTA - percussion performance, entertaining for both adults and children. To book from outside Korea see: http://ticket.interpark.com/Global/Play/Goods/GoodsInfo.asp?GoodsCode=15010874
or http://ticket.interpark.com/Global/Play/Goods/GoodsInfo.asp?GoodsCode=15014878
BIBAP is another non-verbal performance that may keep children's interest as well. See
4. See some other options that may be of interest to children here: http://www.korea4expats.com/article-art-galleries-museums-children-Seoul-Gyeonggido.html
5. The city tour bus should be fine regardless of the temperature. The buses are generally comfortable and heated. Depending on where you're going, you would likely not be outside that long either. The buses offer on/off options.

Suggest you post the wheelchair rental request on its own with "where to rent a wheelchair in Seoul' on the subject line.
Hope this helps and that you enjoy your stay in Seoul.
