Best things to do and see in Seoul

What can you see and do in Seoul?

Seoul has been the Korean capital since as far back as the Joseon dynasty (1392 to 1897). This means you will be immersed in a city that’s rich in cultural history. At the very centre of Seoul, you will find the main gate of the Gyeongbokgung Palace, Gwanghwamun. Here, there’s also a plaza, Secret Garden, Korean Folk Museum and Joseon Palace Museum to explore. Nature lovers will adore the parks that span the Han River; Banpo Hangang Park is perhaps the most famous. However, there are many nice spots along the river. You will find safe cycling paths, plenty of snack and souvenir stands and night markets to stroll through. Along the Han River, you can also find the Banpo bridge fountain and visit the Some Sevit floating island complex. If you’re a fan of K-pop, a visit to the famous Gangnam district is also a must. Gangnam lies close to the heart of Seoul and is a great place to soak in modern South Korean culture.
