Seoul, the dynamic capital of South Korea where tradition and modernity coexist, turns itself into an accessible tourism city that is convenient for everyone to travel. Under the slogan of "Accessible tourism environment plan 2018", Seoul Tourism Organization opened the Seoul Danurim Accessible Tourism Center in April 2019 for the disabled, elderly, parents and/or guardians of children in cooperation with the Seoul Metropolitan Government.

Seoul Danurim Accessible Tourism Center offers comprehensive services to ensure that the travel experience in Seoul is a convenient and safe one for all including tourists requiring assistance. Major services offered by the center include the operation of wheelchair accessible vehicles and travel assistive device rentals, and provision of accessibility information on the Seoul Danurim Accessible Tourism Center's website.

The website will help to facilitate the resumption of travel by ensuring an effective display of the accessibility information. Users can easily grasp the information at a glance with the effective use of pictogram. The website also allows travelers to draw up their travel plans easily and to find the correct information as they can search information by region and convenient facility they need.

The website offers information about 60 major tourist attractions and wheelchair accessible accommodations certified as "Universal Tourism Facilities" for tourists requiring assistance. The most recommended tourist spots include 4 palaces of the Joseon Dynasty, notably Gyeongbokgung Palace where BTS delivered their "IDOL" performance, Dongdaemun Design Plaza full of modern inspiration, and Seoul Botanic Park heavily frequented by people as a natural healing place.
