About Seoul

Seoul is the capital city of South Korea. The temples and palaces of this city tell a long and storied history. The magnificent natural landscape and modern skyscrapers merge together to form a city which is both young and cultured. Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung Palaces are ancient palaces, while Bukchon Hanok Village and Namsangol Hanok Village are well-preserved traditional Korean villages. Seoul is a shopping paradise. In Myeong-dong, Dongdaemun Market, Sinsa-dong and Samcheong-dong, you can find all kinds of cutting-edge fashions, including clothing, jewelry and make-up. Once night falls, Seoul is even more magnificent. Climb atop the YTN Seoul Tower to feast your eyes on the city's glittering nightscape. The Han River is the background of many beloved Korean soap operas. Seoul's delicious food is not to be missed. Bibimbap, kimchi and Samgyetang (Korean ginseng chicken soup) are all delicious in their own right.

Observation Deck
Modern Architecture
N Seoul Tower is a major landmark located on top of Namsan Mountain, overlooking a panoramic view of Seoul. It is not only a paradise for Koreans, but also a popular destination for foreign tourists. Under the N Seoul Tower is a wall of locks, where lovers come to hang a lock symbolizing their never-ending love. The French-style revolving restaurant at the top of the tower is a popular spot for a romantic dinner on what feels like the top of the world. Another highlight of the N Seoul Tower is the fantastic night view. The lights on the launch tower, observation deck, tower and tower floor are all as magnificent as they are varied, and even change with the weather and seasons.

Palace
Historical Architecture
Gyeongbokgung Palace is located in a corner of central Seoul, the first palace constructed during the Joseon Dynasty. Gyeongbokgung features gorgeous scenery all year round, with cherry blossoms in the spring, green trees in summer, ginkgo trees in autumn, and pearly white snow in winter. Korean dramas, such as "Da Jang Geum", "The House of Kings", and "You from the Stars" have all been filmed here. The east side of Gyeongbokgung Palace is Geonchunmun Gate, with Yeongchumun in the west, Sinmumun in the north, and Gwanghwamun in the south. Gwanghwamun Gate is the main entrance to the palace, featuring exquisite craftsmanship, clever architecture, and a magnificent stylistic design. The changing of the guard ceremony is certainly worth a watch.

During the day, I do not understand the black night, a little surprise in Seoul's Itaewon. In the three years, a rough estimate is probably going about ten times, but never once Itaewon arrangements too. The provisions because of a sudden came here, met a lot of uphill downhill but little surprise, Itaewon day is not the same feeling. Visitors rarely, small street to find all kinds of wonderful. Sunset time in chic cafes watching the Namsan Tower, such as the Nama light. And there were six cafes, small location of each layer, but the arrangement is particularly good-looking. The top floor is open, photographed here are particularly useful, you can see the Namsan Tower. In short, Itaewon day recommend!
