Gyeongbokgung Palace, built in 1395, remains the largest of all five palaces. The premises were once destroyed by fire during the Imjin War (Japanese Invasions, 1592-1598). However, all of the palace buildings were later restored by 1868.

Jogyesa Temple, the center of Zen Buddhism in Korea, is located in the middle of  downtown city. The first thing you will notice at the temple are the lovely trees. These locust trees and Baeksong trees in front of the main temple building, are about 500 years old.

Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. The name Bukchon, which literally translates to northern village.

Insa-dong, located in the heart of the city, is an important place where old but precious and traditional goods are on display. There is one main road in Insa-dong with alleys on each side. Within these alleys are galleries and traditional restaurants, teahouses, and cafes.

Cheonggyecheon Stream existed only as a neglected waterway hidden by an overpass but was restored in 2005. Today, it has been transformed into a haven of natural beauty amidst the bustle of city life.

Myeong-dong  could be the best shopping districts in Seoul because it is always very lively with locals and foreign tourist.  Common products for sale include clothes, shoes, accessories. Don’t miss out lots of street food and decent restaurants as well.

N Seoul Tower opened to the public on October 15, 1980.  The 236.7 meter tower sits a top of Namsan Mountain (243m) where you can see  panoramic views of Seoul and the surrounding areas.
