5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Seoul

Ready to plan your next vacation? Are you looking for a new adventure? Then, Seoul is the perfect place to find it. From traditional Korean culture to modern shopping districts, Seoul offers something different and exciting at every corner. If you are planning your trip, don’t forget to read this blog post! Here are 5 reasons why you should visit Seoul.

  • Enjoyable Foods!

The food in Seoul is full of flavor with spice combinations that will remind you of many other countries. You’ll find plenty of Korean staples like Kimchi (spicy fermented cabbage), Bulgogi (marinated grilled meat) but also dishes from places like China or France. There’s truly something for everyone to enjoy!

  • Unique Characteristics

Each neighborhood has its own characteristics so it’s worth exploring them all. Myeongdong being the most populous area with many boutiques, restaurants and street vendors on every corner; Insadong for art galleries as well as local Korean cuisine from centuries past; Bukchon Hanok Village which was built by noblemen during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1905) offers glimpses into Korea’s traditional culture. The city also features some spectacular views of mountains and nature wherever you go.

  • Beautiful Temples

The temples are beautiful – there’s the Jogyesa Temple, which is the head temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. It’s one of Seoul’s most important cultural sites and is a great place to learn about religion. Although the size of the temple is very small, it has a large and beautiful Daeungjeon, which is comparable to Gyeongbokgung Palace. And you can find gorgeous white pine trees in the courtyard. If you have been looking for a new and exciting place to visit, this temple is definitely worth it!

  • Modern Attractions

Seoul is also home to many modern attractions and great shopping opportunities – for example, the Seoul World Cup Stadium has a green roof that’s accessible to visitors (which can be seen from different points in the city) as well as an observation point with spectacular views of major landmarks like Namsan Mountain and Dongdaemun Market.

  • Full of Adventure

If you’re looking for adventure then there are plenty of things to do! You could take on one of the many hikes or go camping overnight at Bukhansan National Park located about 30 minutes outside of Seoul. Or if not hiking, how about biking around Changdeokgung Palace? If it’s something more relaxing you want then stop by Cheonggyecheon Creek which runs through the heart of Seoul and is lined with beautiful cherry blossom trees in Spring.

Seoul is an exciting city with something for everyone. Not only that, but it’s also a great place to experience the traditional Korean culture as well as see some of Korea’s modern day architecture and historic sites. You’ll never forget your time exploring Seoul!
