Experience Seoul: what to see, what to do

Seoul is one of Asia's most exciting cities, steeped in cutting edge culture, digital technology, historic monuments and arguably the best street food around. Popular Korean culture has taken the world by storm and shows no signs of letting up!

Essentials in Seoul

Gyeongbok-gung: This is Seoul's grandest palace from the Joseon Dynasty and was the country's seat of power until it was ransacked by Japanese invaders in 1592. Today the palace has been restored and is a must-visit for any first-timer in Seoul.

Hiking: City break? Sure but Seoul has some amazing hiking too with the mountains right outside the city. Hire a car in Seoul or take the train to Mount Bukhan. This is the most popular place for hiking so can get crowded on weekends. Mount Gwanak and Mount Inwang are also good.

Everland: Ready for an adventure into pop culture? Welcome to Seoul's version of Disneyland! There are tons of rides and even a zoo with the world's only tiger-lion hybrid.
