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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Myeongdong Shopping Street and Namdaemun Market. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like National Museum of Korea and Lotte World. And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Gyeongbokgung Palace, steep yourself in history at Deoksugung, take some stellar pictures from N Seoul Tower, and take a stroll through Insadong.

For photos, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Seoul online trip planner .
