    Gyeongbok Palace

    1 Sejongro, Seoul, 11, South Korea
    4.5
    60 reviews

    The grandest of Seoul's Joseon Dynasty Palaces, the giant Gyeongbokgung complex perhaps bespeaks more of the nature of contemporary Seoul than any other single attraction. Completely swallowed by the boxy grey sprawl of the modern city, on a quiet morning within the palace walls, wandering the gardens on worn cobbles between the ornate wooden pavilions with their sweeping grey slate ...

    DMZ - Demilitarized Zone

    San 121 Eoryong-ri, Jinseo-myeon Paju-si, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea

    US President Bill Clinton called it the "scariest place on earth." I don't know if I'd go that far but it is pretty amazing. Do. Not. Skip.

    Gwanghwamun Square

    Sejong-ro Jongno-gu, Seoul, Korea
    4
    21 reviews

    Hemmed in on both sides by rushing traffic and foreign embassies, the newly-completed Gwanghwamun Square, a long and broad concrete plaza at the center of one of the city's most important cultural and governmental districts, is a delightful and sorely needed public space in a city that sometimes lacks for them. With the long avenue framing Seoul's low mountains in ...

    National Museum of Korea

    Sejong-ro 1-57, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea
    4.5
    19 reviews

    This place is one of the largest museums in the world. You'll learn a lot about Korea here--and about other Asian countries and cities. When you're ready for a break, head to the tea room.

    Leeum Samsung Museum of Art

    747-18 Hannam-dong Yongsan-gu, Seoul, South Korea 02 2014-6901
    4.5
    7 reviews

    Located in the Itaewon neighborhood, this fantastic (if small) museum is worth visiting just for the fantastic architecture of the modern building that houses it. Presentation of its collection, from ancient Korean celadon ceramics to contemporary non-representational painting, is top-notch. Smaller than the mammoth National Museum, but on a whole more digestible, and more rewarding. Admission 10,000 won, closed Mondays.

    Gyeongbokgung

    161, Sajik-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea
    4.5
    10 reviews

    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 ...

    Bukchon Hanok Village

    105 Gye-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea
    4.5
    9 reviews

    North of the palace and Seochon is Bukchon, a uniquely historical neighborhood that is not to be missed when traveling in Seoul. The streets are lined with traditional Korean hanoks (some lived in, some not) and the neighborhood boasts quaint cafes and restaurants. Though Bukchon is certainly not going through as much of a modern revolution as Seochon, it's proximity ...

    King Sejong Memorial Hall

    157 Chongnyangni-dong, Seoul, 11 South Korea
    4.5
    2 reviews

    One of my favourite museums in the city. The museum (memorial hall) is located under the King Sejong's statue. It describes the good life of King Sejong. History of Hangul (Korean language character) is fascinating.

    History is the best way for building culture. You will find something incredible inside the buildings. A place must go for knowing more about the Korean. The historical site is great.

    This has many treasures. I loved the artifacts but most of all what royal life looked like was my favorite. What was the best feature was the modern facilities and air conditioning.

    It is a moden museum with a lot of artists from Korean as well as foreign artists. The place is large but can visited easily in one day. It can be accessed easily from the Seoul Metro and has a bus that takes you to the entrance.
