There are cities as well developed as Seoul but what sets this city apart from the rest is the time and money it invests to preserve its heritage. Seoul is one of the most popular cities in Asia for tourists to travel to. It has Amusement Parks, Major business districts, many options for Shopping and a good share of bars too. It also has palaces, parks, heritage areas and more. So if you are a tourist here are a few things you should do in Seoul.
Find a good and affordable hotel to stay in.
Seoul is a huge city and you can find accommodation options all over the city at different prices. If you feel particularly interested you can even stay in hotels in songdo, the huge Eco-city in nearby incheon. However if you choose to stay in Seoul, there are many options available at different price points. If you travelled to Seoul for the purpose of a luxurious vacation then spending for an expensive room in a 5 star hotel is perfectly alright. However if you wish to travel and explore the city then go for a more cheaper option and remember that you can probably get rooms with more amenities for a cheaper price outside Seoul. The time you spend in the hotel would be less anyway so you can save money for other things. Cheaper does not mean low quality. You can find hotels or bnbs that offer a decent amount of facilities and well kept rooms for a more affordable price so always check around and do some research.
Visit the Gyeongbok Palace.
This is the most gorgeous palace in South Korea, it is also the largest. The Palace located in North Seoul was constructed in 1395 and was home to the King and his family. It has stood throughout many centuries and been witness to major events in the Korean Peninsula. The palace was even burned down during the 1600s and then abandoned for two centuries before being entirely reconstructed and restored during the 19th century only once again to be destroyed by the Japanese army during the 20th century. Much of the palace compound has been now restored but the process is ongoing. Regardless it is a must-visit for all tourists who visit Seoul. The palace is breathtakingly beautiful and the history makes it all the more captivating.
