Top 5 Places to Visit in Seoul!

Korea, as a travel destination, is continuously developing. There are many other beautiful places to visit in Korea such as Busan or Jeju island, but the place tourists would like to visit the most will be Seoul, the capital city of the country. Even though Seoul is not very huge in scale, it has a lot of spectacles and foodstuffs to enjoy. For those people who are concerned about where to visit during their period of the trip, I will recommend some attractive places to go in Seoul! 

Here are the Top 5 Places to Visit in Seoul

#1. Bukchon Hanok Village

Here is the only place which preserves the original form of traditional Korea housing, Hanok. Walking down the quiet street, you can feel the Korean culture. People who want to experience more traditions can also visit nearby Insa-dong, where many handicraft shops are located.

#2. Gyeongbokgung Palace


Gyeongbokgung is a place where kings of the Joseon Dynasty resided. You can double the pleasure of traveling when you lend Hanbok, Korean traditional clothes, and wear it. Gyeongbokgung has a beautiful landscape and therefore not only foreigners but Koreans often visit there.

#3. Myeong-dong shopping street


If you want to enjoy shopping in Korea, visit Myeong-dong shopping street. Maybe you can see all the brands you know there. In addition, a lot of food such as grilled chicken skewers or ice cream is being sold on the street, so you can enjoy shopping and eating at the same time! You do not have to worry about communication because most of the staffs in shops are proficient in foreign languages. I recommend you to go Myeong-dong on weekdays rather than weekends because a good number of people visit here every day.

#4. Namsan Seoul Tower


You can see the whole of Seoul here! It is very easy to go up Namsan by bus or taxi, and I recommend that you visit in the evening. Furthermore, you can enjoy the night view even if you do not go up the tower, but you will see more beautiful landscapes if you do.

The nearest subway station: Donguk Univ. station

#5. Hangang Park


Here is a park located in front of Han River. Visitors may wonder at the scale of the river, and they will be also astonished by the fact that people can make a food delivery in the park. In the daytime, tourists can unfold a mat and enjoy a picnic, and when the sun sets, they can get aboard a cruise ship and enjoy the beautiful night scene of Han River.
