One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
Head to Myeongdong Shopping Street and Namdaemun Marketfor some retail therapy. There's lots more to do: explore the galleries of Gyeongbokgung Palace, take in nature's colorful creations at Namsan Park, admire the striking features of Changdeokgung Palace, and take a stroll through Bukchon Hanok Village.

Plan my Seoul trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
