Seoul

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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gyeongbokgung Palace and Changgyeonggung Palace. Step out of the city life by going to Bukhansan National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to DMZ Haemaru Village (in Paju), Songdo Central Park (in Incheon) and Hwaseong Fortress (in Suwon). There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Myeongdong Shopping Street, take in the spiritual surroundings of Bongeunsa Temple, explore the galleries of Seodaemun Prison History Hall, and see the interesting displays at Grevin Museum.

To see photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Seoul holiday planner.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) to allow time to travel to Busan.
