Seoul is a majestic city and its blend of ancient and modern offers travelers to South Korea an unforgettable experience. From peaceful temples and majestic palaces to a vibrant nightlife and awe-inspiring skyscrapers, Seoul will overwhelm your senses. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words so, here are 5 photos of Seoul that will make you want to book a flight today!
Gyeongbokgung Palace is probably the most iconic sight in all of Seoul and has a long and storied history. Gyeongbokgung means “palace greatly blessed by Heaven” and was completed in 1395.
Bukchon Hanok Village
Bukchon Hanok Village is an ancient settlement dating back almost 600 years and features traditional Korean wooden houses called “hanok.” This picturesque village is set in the hills north of Cheonggyecheon Stream between Gyeongbokgung Palace and Changdeokgung Palace. In Seoul proper, hanok’s are being replaced by modern buildings and Bukchon Hanok Village is one of the only places in Korea where you can experience this tradition.
Myeong-Dong Shopping District
Think of Myeong-Dong as the Times Square of Seoul. It’s home to the hottest district for shopping and nightlife in the city. Myeong-Dong offers shoppers an amazing mixture of street stalls and retail shops selling everything from high fashion to casual wear. Korean cosmetics are the hot-ticket item and tourists make a beeline to stores offering discount prices. The night also brings out many push-cart stalls selling a variety of incredible street food!
Seoul’s Amazing Cuisine
Foodies, it is a ‘sin’ if you don’t, at least ONCE, go to “Gogi Jib” or barbecue restaurant. Here, you will see an amazing feast prepared before your eyes, order gogi-gui (roast meat) where a colorful selection of fresh meats and vegetables are brought for you to cook your meal yourself using the grills built right into tables. Don’t forget to order Kimchee, the national dish of Korea. Kimchee is a traditional side dish made from salted and fermented vegetables and is one of the oldest health foods in the world.
An Amazing Culture
Two things that ensure that Koreans stay true to their heritage are language and culture. The Korean language has the traditional principles of social status and respect built right into it. Festivals and traditional dresses keep the amazing culture of Korea alive!
