Looking for a way to escape the tourist traps and figure out the best things to do in Seoul? Here’s your ultimate guide! First, let’s understand what this city is about from a local perspective.

Not only one of the largest economic centers in East Asia, Seoul is also a destination that makes travelers desire to visit at least once in their lifetime. This city is an intriguing blend of both ancient Joseon heritage and modern Korean pop culture. Interestingly, half of the city symbolizes the glory of Joseon dynasty with royal palaces and ancient villages, while the other half is dominated with colorful street arts, passionate dance performances, and trendy fashion styles.

A wide range of things to do in Seoul can satisfy even the pickiest travelers. In the morning, you might be taken aback by the magnificence of Gyeongbokgung, the “greatly blessed by heaven” palace with its spectacular architecture and fascinating cultural performances. In the afternoon, you can indulge yourself into Korean culture by strolling around Hanok village in a traditional Hanbok. At dusk, the extra charm of urban modernization in Gangnam and Myeongdong may be a little bit overwhelming for the introverts; but bearing with the hustling beginning a bit, you will definitely relish the fun and immerse yourself into the vivid lifestyle there.

A weekend getaway with nature walks, biking tour, and relaxation on the romantic Nami island will for sure infuse you with enough energy for the busy upcoming week. If you are an inquisitive learner of international relations, a day tour to the DMZ and JSA will undoubtedly quench your thirst for more insights into the political relationship between North and South Korea. Splurging your budget in Hongdae and Dongdaemun night market will be a resounding conclusion to your Seoul trip.
