South Korea - Getting to know Seoul

Seoul offers an exciting introduction to South Korea and will be the first taste of the country for many tourists (as most international flights land here). Situated in the north west, a short distance from the border with North Korea, it’s an intoxicating mix of bustling streets, high rises, non-stop consumption, bright lights, festivals and performances. Phew! Yet the capital is also welcoming, safe and, at times, even serene. It offers a treasure trove of historic sights and palaces, contemplative galleries and a delightful National Park within easy reach.
