Introducing Seoul


Seoul as it is today was born out of the destruction of the Korean War, and it is a city of fierce modernity that still has not forgotten its historical heritage. As you explore, you will come across palaces like Gyeonghuigung and Changgyeonggung and towering skyscrapers like N Seoul Tower where you can enjoy amazing views and delicious meals. COEX Aquarium offers fun and surprises while the world's largest indoor theme park, Lotte World, is full of thrills and adventure. If it's shopping you’re looking for, then be sure to head over to the upmarket Myeongdong district. Seoul also offers some of the best Korean food around and there are plenty of restaurants serving other cuisine from the Far East and the rest of the world in the city as well.
