Top Five Places To Visit in Seoul Korea
In 2009 and in 2010, Sylvia and I visited Seoul Korea. Growing up, I worked in a restaurant which was owned by a Korean family and so having the opportunity to visit the country was really lovely.
Today I am sharing my five top places to visit in Seoul Korea.
The National Museum Of Korea
The National Museum of Korea is the largest Museum in Korea and has over 220,000 exhibition galleries. You can learn a lot about the history of Korea at the Museum as well as view fine arts and visit the children’s museum. It’s a fabulous place to visit and a sure sight you wouldn’t want to miss.
Gyeongbokgung Palace is a Korean Palace in a beautiful serene location. The palace is a budget friendly place to visit, has a tour guide to explain the different living quarters and if you tie it right you can get to watch the changing of the guard.
Bukhansan National Park
Buckhansan National Park is the perfect location to visit for budding hikers. The park has a number of well maintained trails with peaceful and fabulous views. Scattered throughout the mountain are also 20 Buddhist temples which would be great to visit. It’s a real hike and not for the faint hearted.
The N Seoul Tower
The N Seoul Tower is a fantastic attraction in Seoul. Built on a 262 meter peak in Namsan Park, the tower reaches to 480 meters in height. The tower has an observatory deck and beautiful views and is something you’d not want to miss.
Gwangjang Market is a fabulous place to visit to try out traditional Korean food. Full of bustling stalls there are a variety of food options for you to taste. There are also traditional clothing stores and plenty of souvenir stores to visit for the perfect gift.
