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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Trickeye Museum Seoul and Ewha Womans University. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Lotte World and Seoul Children's Grand Park. There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of Gyeongbokgung Palace, make a trip to Changgyeonggung Palace, take some stellar pictures from N Seoul Tower, and examine the collection at Love Museum.
