Highlights of Seoul
Seoul is the capital of South Korea. With a population of 9.8 million people, it is also the largest city in South Korea. What makes the city unique is how high tech lives alongside the old, represented in its temples and other religious buildings. The Korean work ethic is extremely strong, working all hours. However its geographical location has made it a target for neighbouring China and Japan. Indeed the older generation speak Japanese as a result of the Japanese occupation of Korea during the 2nd World War. In addition, unstable North Korea on its peninsula, make it a country that is always on alert. Visit the War Memorial of Korea for an insight into Korea’s history.
The Gyeongbokgung Palace comes highly recommended. It hosts the National Museum of Korea as well as the National Folk Museum. The building itself was built six centuries ago by the Chosun dynasty in pleasant grounds consisting of gardens and a lake. If you go at 2 pm you may get to see the change of the guard ceremony.
Another high visited palace is the Changdeokgung Palace. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With outstanding architecture from 600 years ago, seated in impressive gardens, it is a must see when visiting Seoul. The Secret Garden tour comes highly recommended.
You can see an example of high tech Seoul by visiting the Trickeye Museum. Using Augmented Reality (AR) you can actually interact with the paintings to take photos or a video, also using 2D/3D illusions. Next to this museum is the Ice Museum. Buy one admission ticket for entrance to both of them. The Ice Museum hosts objects completely made out of ice such as an iced kitchen. Be prepared to come early as it is a popular hang-out type of place.
Koreans love shopping. Go to Myeongdong Shopping Street, to see a full array of shops, especially skin care and beauty products. There are many shopping centres in this area too. However if you are looking for a trendy art area, then go to Insadong. Here you have tea houses, restaurants, souvenir shops and art galleries.
If you want to get away for the hustle and bustle of the city you have various options. The Bukhansan National Park offers many hiking trails. Good for a spot of exercise. Alternatively go to Hangang Park and hire a bicycle. There are cycle trails here. Or if you want to enjoy the Han river, take a swan boat ride. Good views of the city make it an exciting place to visit.
If you want to get around Seoul, the Metro itself is clean and convenient. Best to avoid the rush hours of course. If you buy a T-money card you can travel by metro, bus or taxi. In this way it gives you the greatest flexibility to explore Seoul to the maximum.
