Hi welcome to SK forum.

Your itinerary is way too much. Covering two huge palaces and two popular tourists area in one day? The Biwon(secret garden) tour alone took me about 1.5 hrs. Gyeongbokgung Palace is even bigger than the other palace. I would limit myself to two palaces then do either Insa-dong or Samcheong-dong, then Dongdaemun market if your legs can still stand after you cover those areas.

For Day 3, Nami island is more of a day trip destination then half day trip. Gangnam and Shinchon are two huge separate areas that are some distance away from each other. Also where in Gangnam area do you want to go? COEX-mall? Apgujung-dong Rodeo Street area? or Shinsa-dong Garousue-gil?

I advise you trim off your plans so you can appreciate each place you visit better, rather than spending most of time traveling one spot to another.

In Uk we have tours where people land at Liverpool, board a bus that drives to London and passes a few places. No getting off the bus. That evening the tour peopl board their plane to France.

Your tour is like that, I'm afraid.

Tell us where you stay and maybe we can help?
