Gyeongbokgung was originally built during Korea's Joseon dynasty, first meant to house King Taejo. The original was destroyed by the Japanese, but the palace and the grounds have been restored beautifully. Today, the palace sits just to the west of the lovely Seochon neighborhood, north of Insadong, and near the historical Bukchon neighborhood. It's proximity to these places, as well ...

    Bar Da (Bar 다)

    3 reviews

    A famous artists' hangout with a dark, smoky bohemian glam, Bar Da's name is a kind of joke in Korean. Look for a dark sign reading BAR 다 on the alley side of the Hongdae 'parking street' -- a five minute walk from Hongik University Station, line 2, exit 5. Bartenders here mix a fine cocktail, the bottled beer selection ...

    광장시장 (Gwangjang Market)

    1.39 mi from Gyeongbokgung
    3 reviews

    Gwangjang Market is a large, traditional market at Jongno-5-ga Station. The coolest part about it is all the food vendors. There's a section of the market for kalguksu (fresh cut noodle soup), raw fish, bindaetteok (mung bean pancake), and sundae (blood sausage). Very good place to come for lunch!

    Siloam Sauna (실로암사우나)

    3 reviews

    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 ...

    Seodaemun Prison History Center

    This has to be one of my second best experience while in Korea. It is very heart wrenching and so sad. I would compare this to the Holocaust museum in DC. It is sad but had excellent history here and the area is gorgeous.

    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!

If you're full from eating or tired of shopping, this is where you can come to take photos, admire the gate, and take a load off on a nearby bench. Or, if the crowds at the restaurants ...

    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 ...

    The Seoul Fortress Wall trail is a great way to see the city. It is quite challenging to do the whole hike in one day but is well worth a few shorter hikes. The northern part is restricted and visitors must register at guard posts between 10 and 3(hours may change).
