Top 5 Interesting Things To Do When You’re In Seoul

A quick glance & you will possibly notice that dinning and shopping are two of Seoul’s most important features. But after a bit more research & pondering around, you will come to know that there is a rich history, parks and mountains, unlimited neighborhood and an interesting Korean culture.

When it comes to top things to do in Seoul the list could go on & on, that is why I thought rather than attempting to tackle each attraction the city has to provide, I would just cover 5 of the most incredible things you must do whenever you visit Seoul. 


Gyeongbukgung Palace:

Gyeongbukgung Palace is one of Seoul’s most-recognized and most-visited historical attractions. Originally built at the end of the fourteenth century, Gyeongbukgung Palace was one of the major palaces throughout the Korean Joseon Dynasty. 


Placed in Central Seoul, pretty close to tourist areas such as Insadong, the palace is quite easy to get to. The palace also houses the National Palace Museum of Korea & the National Folk Museum of Korea.


Bukchon Hanok Village:

Located opposite to the Gyeongbukgung Palace, Bukchon Hanok Village is one of the best places to explore in Seoul. Discovering the streets & the typical Korean homes is certainly a lot of fun. Inside the village there’re also a small number of homes that are opened their gates as guest houses – not the cheapest, but does give you a great experience. I had an excellent time walking around the old-world village while savoring Korean touristy street foods.

Suwon’s Hwaseong Fortress:

Approximately one-half an hour from Seoul, Suwon’s Hwaseong Fortress makes way for a wonderful day trip. Constructed in the eighteenth century, the Korean palace is now a UNESCO World Heritage site & south Korea’s most crucial historical sites. 


N Seoul Tower:

Central Seoul rotates around the N Seoul Tower that locates at the summit of the Namsan mountain. It’s a communication tower that’s open as an entertainment and observation tower. From the top you have the chance to witness the best overall view of Seoul. 


Myeongdong Shopping:


Shopping aficionados will enjoy when they move to Myeongdong – Seoul’s busiest shopping area. From the latest Korean cosmetics & fashion to the brightest sneakers, there are all sorts of stores in this outdoor shopping avenue. Apart from the trendy costly item, during the afternoon hours, street shopping stalls sell many cheap local products that you may love to carry back home. If shopping isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there is a huge collection of eateries and street food stalls where you may want savor some of the delicious international and local cuisines.
