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.
Gyeongbokgung Palace and Bukchon Hanok Village are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Your inner history buff will appreciate Cheonggyecheon Stream and Myeong-dong Cathedral.

There's much more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Myeongdong Shopping Street, don't miss a visit to Ewha Womans University, take a stroll through Itaewon, and visit Garosu-gil.
