The organising committee for International Data Week 2022 is excited to
announce a variety of travel destinations for those planning an extended
stay in Seoul during International Data Week. There are several
destinations within minutes of the conference venue, and all are
conveniently located in downtown Seoul. Listed below is a selection of
attractions and destinations all within a reasonable distance of the venue.

   - Changdeokgung Palace tour
   - The War Memorial of Korea
   - The National Museum of Korea
   - Bukhansan National Park
   - Myeongdong Shopping Street

For first-time visitors, there is no better way to discover the city than
to spend all day hopping on and hopping off the Seoul City Tour Bus. A
circular route connecting Seoul’s top sightseeing destinations can be
easily accessible for the price of just one ticket.

Additionally, two tour packages have been arranged for IDW attendees free
of charge for up to 25 participants per tour including lunch and bus

   - Tour A (09:00-16:00 24 June): Visit of National Library of Korea  >
   Lunch > Coex Aquarium

This excursion will offer a tour of the National Library which stores over
10 million volumes, including foreign books and some of the National
Treasures of South Korea. You will stop for a lunch break. The tour will
end in one of South Korea’s largest Aquariums with different species of
aquatic life and fish on display.

   - Tour B (10:00-18:00 24 June): Visit of Sungkyunkwan University > Lunch
   > DMZ (Korean Demilitarized Zone)

Sungkyunkwan University is a private research university in South Korea,
where a memorable tour will be arranged. A break for lunch will be followed
by a short drive to the Korean Demilitarized Zone. It is a border barrier
that divides South Korea from North Korea. The DMZ is 250km long and was
put in place following the end of the Korean War (1950-1953).

A third tour option, although not included in IDW registration, includes a
whole day of sightseeing including meals and transportation on 25 June,
again with a maximum of 25 participants and will cost between $80-$100 USD.

   - 09:00-18:00: Bukhan Mountain. Nat’l Park – Traditional Village – Lunch
   – Palace – Traditional Market – Gangnam – dinner

Bukhan Mountain is the northernmost mountain in Seoul located in Bukhansan
National Park. There are 100 Buddhist temples and a 2,000 years old
fortress combining a mixture of beautiful nature and rich history. You will
