Perched on top of Namsan is the N Seoul Tower, one of Seoul’s most iconic sights. You can do the awesome but slightly knackering hike up to the N Seoul Tower or you can take a cable car from close to Myeong-dong subway station. Views from Namsan and in particular the N Seoul Tower are spectacular. Visiting in the evening can give you some awesome city views, however the wait to get up the N Seoul Tower at night can be long, so just plan wisely and book ahead if you .....can. If you’re not fussed about going up the tower itself, the views from Namsan are still pretty awesome. This is definitely one of best evening’s Seoul attractions.  Show less

Korea has been the centre of a tug of war between China and Japan for the last couple of hundred years. Prior to Imperial Japan’s taking control following the first Sino-Japanese war (1894-95) Korea was a tributary of the Ming and then rather begrudgingly, Qing Dynasty; in effect it was China who was in control. When World War 2 ended in 1945 it still wasn’t an independent nation. Although its previous rulers had been vanquished and booted out, the country was split in two: the Russian backed North and the American backed .....South. Interestingly up until the 1970’s it was actually North Korea that was more developed, a far cry from today. After overcoming poor governance, military dictatorships and a faltering economy South Korea grew year upon year and now has roughly the 11th largest GDP (some analysts have it slightly lower) and is regarded as one of the most technologically advanced nations on earth. Seoul is the epicentre of this development. A city where the palaces of bygone dynasty’s stand alongside giant skyscrapers, K-Pop and night markets compete for pennies and attention and the Jaebeol’s are in and out the press (more often than not for something unpleasant). There truly is nowhere else like Seoul. Show less

This village, situated in between Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung is home to roughly 900 Hanok (traditional Korean homes). It is full of small museums, art galleries and craft workshops and is a great place to explore. At sunset or early morning it can be especially nice. Do be aware that this place can get very busy with tourists who are in the area visiting Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung. In spite of all the museums, cafes and workshops this is still a residential area for some, so do bear that in mind when exploring.

Seoul is hemmed in by mountains and draped by waterways. The best place to see that beauty is from the needlelike N Seoul Tower on Mount Namsan. You can either take a cable car or trek for 45 minutes through the stone stairway. As I walked up to the base, I was greeted by the tens of thousands of ‘love locks’ hung on fences, gates, railings and ‘trees of love’. My local friend Kim told me love is a serious business in Seoul. So serious that couples match their blood .....groups to ensure a compatible long lasting relationship. So don’t be surprised if someone pops up the blood group question. But I wasn’t looking for love so I didn’t get swayed by love locks and took the elevator to the observatory deck of N Seoul Tower. Flabbergasted by the staggering immensity of Seoul I was looking at the panoramic view like an excited kid. The Seoul skyline was bejeweled with high rises after high rises and four guardian mountains cradled the city from four sides. The velvety mist was trying to play hide-and-seek with the city. Wherever my eyes could reach I saw the manicured landscape of Seoul. Show less

Changdeokgung is one of the five Palaces built by the Joseon dynasty and is the most well preserved. Since 1997 it is part of the Unesco World Heritage. Changgyeonggung is connected to Changdeok so it’s nice to see both. We particularly enjoyed walking through the gardens where many flowers were blooming and the pond next to the Great Greenhouse.

Frequently known as the forgotten war in the Western World, the Korean War was a battle between the competing ideologies of the USA and China and the Soviet Union. The war raged from 1950 until 1953 when an armistice agreement was signed between the USA, China and North Korea. South Korea was not a signatory to this ceasefire and a formal peace treaty between the two Korea’s and their allies was never formally agreed meaning that the two sides are technically still at war. As well as a memorial to those that .....fought and died in Korean War the site is also home to a number of excellent exhibitions giving information into one of the most brutal conflicts of the 20th century.  The Korean War started in 1950 when North Korea launched a surprise invasion of the South. Initially the North made spectacular gains, partially thanks to weaponry and support from the Soviet Union. However the USA soon pushed the North close to the Chinese border and then China joined in. There are many who believe that without China’s intervention North Korea would have been ceased to exist. This museum offers a lot of insight into Korean history and for all wanting to get to know the culture better – it’s a Seoul must see! Show less

After getting the bird’s eye view, it was time to experience the illustrious past of Korea. I started turning the history pages from the fourteenth century Changdeokung palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which was the home of Korea’s last emperor. Cobblestoned corridors, elegant open courtyards, alluring Secret Garden, soothing ponds, and pagodas infused a dose of tranquility in a frenetic urban city. I wanted to spend more time exploring the colossal Changdeokung palace but being time-poor I had to sacrifice my wish in favour of attending the Royal Guard-Changing .....Ceremony at the Gyeongbokgung Palace. At 2 pm sharp the royal guards arrived in their colourful flowing robes, carrying traditional weapons and playing traditional musical instruments. The Ceremony gave goosebumps and transported me to the 14th century Joseon Dynasty when this tradition was enacted exactly as I witnessed. It further stoked my interest in the Korean history and I spend some time at the National Palace Museum of Korea and the National Folk Museum of Korea, both housed in the palace itself. Within walking distance from the palace was Samcheong-dong, where tradition and artistic sensibilities meet. Samcheong-dong is famous for Bukchon Hanok (Korean traditional houses) village. A maze of 900 antique homes with angular roofs, decorative brick walls and heavy wooden doors were weaved together like a beehive. Chic galleries, distinctive cafes and accessory shops were seamlessly integrated into the calm environs of the traditional village. Show less

Full text of the story  Seoul – Old School to New Cool published in the March issue of Jet Airways in-flight magazine Seoul is called Special City for a reason. It is a city of contrasts that has something special for everyone. Fourteenth-century palaces hold their fort against 21st-century skyscrapers, while you can travel between ancient and modern, simply by crossing a street. Han River neatly bisects the old Seoul of palaces, markets, hanoks and government offices from the new Seoul of cloud-piercing high-rises, swanky stores, and avant-garde restaurants. Delivery boys race .....their motorbikes with Maseratis on the road, while gadget-toting fashionistas combat peddlers for walking space. A city as passionate about protecting its 600-years-old heritage as it is about K-Pop, while one moment you are in downtown the next you are at Bukhansan National Park. You can shop till you drop at ritzy department stores or haggle around at labyrinthine markets while gorging on affordable street food or relishing the cuisine of the kings. It is this diversity which makes Seoul truly special. So if you are visiting Seoul soon make sure you do explore the diversity of this Special City Show less

As the name implies, the AREX express (non-stop) train is the quickest way into Seoul. The train does the entire journey from Incheon International Airport Terminal 1 to Seoul Station in just 43 minutes. Trains run from ICN every 30 minutes starting at 5:23am with the last train leaving at 10:48pm. From Seoul Station to ICN, the first train leaves at 6:10am while the last departs for the airport at 10:50pm. A ticket for the AREX express train costs ₩9,000 plus a ₩500 deposit for a single-use travel card. There’s an additional one-way supplement .....of ₩100. TIP: If you’re flying with Korean Air, Asiana Airlines or Jeju Air, you can get a discounted price of ₩6,900 for your AREX ticket. There’s also a group discount. For 4 people or more, you’ll pay just ₩7,500 per person. Although it’s more expensive, the express train is far more comfortable than the regular commuter train. Unlike the regular subway, there’s room for your luggage here. You can place your carry-on luggage in the overhead racks and your larger check-in luggage at the compartments provided near the train cabin doors. There’s also free onboard WiFi for passengers.

The road starts from Paldang Bridge – just across the Han river from Hanam district, and it connects with Yangpyeong and continues further on. It is a true paradise for bikers of all ages or even just hikers. The path is basically ‘flat’ with 3 lanes marked – two of them for bikers, the last one for pedestrians. It is totally car-free and safe for all the family. .....Most of the time, the lane is just winding along the river far from any car-road. You may take your own bike or rent one at several locations along the road. It’s also perfectly adapted for families with strollers or little kids, provided you use caution and respect the bikes-only lanes. Show less

Eating is the highlight of any trip to Seoul. The dazzling array of food on offer in Seoul in simply stunning, from cheap and cheerful street eats to Michelin Star restaurants. Kimchi maybe the first thing people think when they think of Korean food, however there is far more to the Korean palette than spicy pickled cabbage.

Located to the south of Changdeokgung this huge park is home a shrine of the same name as well as a number of others. It is the World Heritage-listed Jongmyo Shrine that is the most important. It is here that spirit tablets of Joseon kings, queens and most loyal government officials are kept. It is believed that their spirits reside in the special hole bored into the wooden tablets. Whilst the park is nothing too spectacular it’s certainly a nice break for the hustle and bustle of Central Seoul.

This stream that flows from northern Seoul down to the Han River has undergone a major facelift in recent years. Roads and raised highways were torn down and replaced with walkways, waterfalls, footbridges and public artworks.  Understandably this has been a big hit with the people of Seoul with summer and is especially popular with families.

This district will always be synonymous with Gangam Style, the song that has caused many a hangover riddled guy or girl to look back on the previous nights dancing with shame. When this song came out I had not yet been to Seoul, but a good friend of mine lived there for a year. It was him who informed me that Gangam was actually a very fancy, upmarket area in Seoul. Think Kensington or Mayfair in London. Not sure if the song “Mayfair Style” would sell as well. It’s certainly an interesting area .....to explore, with plenty of awesome and surprisingly affordable restaurants hidden in the cities back alleys. If that’s not your thing then there are plenty of fashion brands and expensive restaurants that have made Gangnam their home. Show less

Visiting a Jimjilbang is one of the best things to do in Seoul. A Jimjilbang is a Korean onsen/sauna/spa complex offering baths, massages, games rooms, saunas and a bunch of other bits and bobs. A number of Jimjibang’s have options to stay all night with various sleeping rooms within the complex and baths running throughout the night.  There are plenty of these in Seoul, however the price for day time rates and night time rates is likely to differ. Plan appropriately to make sure you don’t get a surprisingly large bill. All nighters .....can sometimes work out cheaper than a hotel, and you will feel fresh as a daisy the next morning. These do have a reputation for being seedy (understandable when you describe it). However the chances of you finding such a place through a google search is pretty slim. Alternatively you can ask your guesthouse or hotel for a recommendation. Show less

Kalguksu is a yummy Korean knife-cut noodle soup. Some of the kalguksu vendors at Gwangjang have received international media attention for their sumptuous dishes and have a dedicated following of local patrons. Kalguksu is not spicy, so it’s a perfect dish for those who have a low tolerance for hot foods.  Many of the Gwangjang vendors follow family recipes that they inherited from their mothers and grandmothers. There are several variations of the dish, with some people adding clams into it to make Bajirak Kalguksu (바지락 칼국수), or others using the .....addition of chicken to create delicious Dak Kalguksu (닭 칼국수). If you are lucky, you may be able to catch the vendors making the noodles by hand – depending on the time of your visit. Show less

Tteokbokki is perhaps my absolute favourite Korean street food delicacy. It is by no means exclusive to Gwangjang market – you can find this snack practically everywhere! Tteokbokki is comprised of thick, chewy rice cakes that are served in a spicy tomato sauce. In any case, it’s incredibly flavourful so I highly recommend that you try it.  For first timers, tteokbokki can seem pretty spicy so come armed with water and be warned! After I lived in Korea for a while I never really noticed it… probably because I’d already burned .....all of my taste buds off with spicy food at that point!  Show less

The Dulle-gil Trail is 70 kilometres long. It connects forest paths and villages along Bukhansan and Dobongsan Mountain. There are 21 parts to the trail, with each section offering hikers a different style of journey. For example, you could choose to walk the Myeongsang-gil (Path of Meditation) one weekend, and the Sonamusup-gil (Pine Tree Forest Trail) the next weekend.

Similarly to Japan, the Koreans have a thing for cute animals. And as such, Seoul is full of various animal cafés. These are basically places, where you can come, have a cup of your favorite beverage and observe or play with some particular animals. And the selection in Seoul is probably even crazier than in Tokyo. Our pick went to Blind Alley Racoon Cafe. I have actually never seen one alive before, as they don’t live in the Czech Republic. But in Blind Alley, they not only have Racoons but .....a capybara and a little guinea pig too. From other options in Seoul, you can also check a meerkat cafe, a sheep cafe or one with turtles and sugar gliders. Show less

The walls had to step down to further expansion of the city, yet you can still find 6 out of the 8 original gates standing. The most famous of them is Namdaemun (the South Gate), also known as Sungnyemun, aka the Gate of Exalted Ceremonies. Unfortunatelly, just a few years ago, it had to be completely rebuilt, as a crazy arsonist decided to set it on fire in .....2008. Nowadays, back again in its full strenght, it carries the title of the No. 1 National Treasure of South Korea and it is guarded by a guard of honor in colorful traditional costumes. Show less

I love traditional Asian folklore costumes, being it Japanese Kimono, Chinese Qipao or Vietnamese Áo dài. Nevertheless, Korean Hanbok definitely belongs among the most beautiful ones and you will meet dozens of locals and tourists wearing if when wandering around the historical quarters of Seoul. No wonder, especially on girls, the beautiful colorful skirts make all of your photos look so much nicer and shinier. Another big advantage is that if you are wearing a hanbok, you have free entrance to basically all the historical palaces in Seoul! So you .....not only save money but also skip the horrible lines at the ticket counters. I got mine at One-day Hanbok, which has a perfect location exactly between the Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung palaces and just a few steps from the Bukchon Hanok village. ➯ Katie’s tip: Book the Hanbok fitting in advance and rather for early morning hours. The shop is really popular and it gets very crowded, which makes the selection of available costumes much smaller if you come later in the day.

Do you want to get yourself pampered in the Korean style? The Dragon Hill Spa is probably the most famous spa in whole Seoul area. For a price of about 10 USD for a day pass, it offers dozens of different pools, saunas, massages, body scrubs or simply rooms where you can lay down and relax. There are both women and men only areas as well as mixed ones and you can even stay overnight, which makes it a great way how to save some money on accommodation for adventurous .....travelers. You can either sleep in some of the heated relaxation rooms (too hot and no blankets or pillows), or in a common sleeping room on a mattress and with a pillow, but with approx 40-50 other persons in the room. I tried it myself and even though I did not get much sleep (from 5 am on, you hear alarm clocks going crazy, as people are waking up to catch their flight), it was quite an experience to remember. ➯ Check out: Prices of hotels in Seoul Show less
