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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Grevin Museum and Yuldong Park. Go for a jaunt from Seoul to Seongnam to see Seongnam Jungang Park about 56 minutes away. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Seoul Museum of History, walk around Haneul Park, don't miss a visit to Bugaksan Seoul Fortress, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Inwangsan Mountain.

Land of the Morning Calm
Though it boasts a history spanning thousands of years, South Korea ranks among the world's most urbanized and modernized countries, with nearly half of its population living in high-rises concentrated in the national capital. In this land of pristine mountain scenery, many South Korea vacations involve some form of winter sports--not surprising for the country that won the bid to host the 2018 Winter Olympics. Curious travelers wishing to get to know South Korea's heart and soul spend only a small part of their holiday in big cities like Busan and Seoul, devoting much of their attention to the tranquil countryside that seems largely untouched by the 21st century.
