Things to Do
Seoul has no shortage of modern attractions, with the futuristic Dongdaemun Design Plaza stealing the spotlight. The convention hall is known for its gravity-defying architecture, cultural museums, and a lush rooftop park.
For a glimpse at Seoul’s past, head to Bukchon Village. Sandwiched between the Gyeongbok Palace and Jongmyo Royal Shrine, it’s home to beautifully preserved Korean buildings and a string of charming tea houses.
Want to experience the high life? Take a stroll around trendy Samcheong-dong, a tree-lined neighbourhood dotted with contemporary art galleries, chic cafes and clothing boutiques.

Seoul is a foodie’s paradise, which means indulging in a traditional hanjeongsik banquet is a must. Don’t miss sampling the crispy hotteok pancakes flipped by street stall vendors, followed by a bowl of spicy crab soup at Noryangjin Fish Market.
