What kinds of packages are there?
The ‘Sejong Belt’ is comprised of various tour packages, each of which includes visits to historical & cultural facilities near Gwanghwamun Square, as well as tickets to a number of nearby cultural art performances.

Seoul is also developing one-stop culture & arts guide programs covering historical & cultural facilities and walking trails of Gwanghwamun area.
How can I make reservations?
The ticketing & information center of the Sejong Belt will open in Haechi Madang of Gwanghwamun Square on August 12, 2010. The center will be 228㎡ in size, and will provide a one-stop ticketing service for reservation, purchase and issuance for the tickets to about 30 cultural art entities near Gwanghwamun Square. Tourists and local residents may now enjoy a range of performances and cultural facilities at discounted prices with the purchase of a single ticket. Haechi Madang is located in the underground space of the fountain plaza which links Gwanghwamun Square and the Gwanghwamun subway station, so it will be convenient for pedestrians to use the ticketing center. Tickets for the Sejong Belt travel packages are also available on-line. You can reserve tickets at the teaser page of the Sejong Belt website which is set to open in September (www.sejongbelt.com), Interpark ticketing space and through the Sejong Belt application which can be downloaded at T-store (www.tstore.co.kr).
