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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Changgyeonggung Palace and Changdeokgung Palace. Take a break from the city and head to Bukhansan National Park and Cheonggyecheon Stream. And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Myeongdong Shopping Street, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Jogyesa Temple, wander the streets of Insadong, and make a trip to Bukchon Hanok Village.

For photos, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Seoul trip itinerary app.
