    Namsan Park is a great place to escape the busyness of Seoul. Some of the paths are a bit steep and can be a challenge after a day of walking, but parts of the park are more peaceful than one might expect.

    Club FF is something of an institution. It's the indie music club in Hongdae most people who've been around a while will have heard of/ have some embarrassing late night tale of drunken debauchery there to share with you/ try to hide. This is because it turns into a club when the bands finish. The club is dirty, noisy, sweaty ...

    Located behind Seoul Station, Silloam is one of the best public baths the city has to offer. The baths themselves, like the jade and mugwort pools, and the hot massage bath, are pretty fine, but the features that distinguish this spa above others are its 'fomentation' saunas -- a series of special rooms on the upper floors in which to ...

    If you've never been to a dog cafe, this is a great opportunity to do so. There are about 15 dogs inside. You are required to buy a drink, which will cost you 5000-8000 Won, but then you can stay as long as you like. You can buy treats to feed the dogs; this will make you popular. Really fun!

    There are many different starting points to walk different sections of the old city wall. Avoid the Namsan part- it’s over crowded. Dongdaemun or Hyewha are much nicer entry points. Continue on after Hyewha gate and spot the bullets remaining from an old North Korean assassination attempt on the president (you’ll need your passport as there’s restricted access in parts)!

    It used to be natural, but it was blocked up for the development, and it came back. Chunggyecheon brought so much to this city. There were a lot of controversial political background during the process, but at the end, they made the fabulous place for the citizen. A lot of big events in the city are happening in this area ...

    One of the best places to see the view of Seoul. Starting with the Seoul N Tower, the whole view of Han River and Gangnam can be seen. It's hard to find if you are not a local, but it's worth visiting. Highly recommended. Two hour hiking course.
