Seoul South Korea

Seoul is manically fast-paced, yet home to some of the most tranquil temples and palaces you’ll ever see. It’s modern, yet sprinkled with sites that date back thousands of years; conservative, yet home to an every-night-of-the-week party culture. 

Seoul’s streets at night are something special, home to endless food stalls (just point at what you want), signs in the arty native alphabet, baseball nets, comic photo booths and (in the summer) a heartwarming outdoor-eating culture.  

While you’re in town, don’t miss the awe-inspiring views of relentless tower blocks from the heights of Seoul Tower (and, if you’re with a loved one, add your own ‘love locking’ padlock), take a tour of the World Cup Stadium, check out the passion at a local baseball game, see The Seoul Museum of History or climb one of the craggy peaks that surround Seoul on every side.
