Seoul City Guide

Brief History

Seoul is one of the largest cities in the world and the engine of economic and political power in South Korea, one of the world’s most fast-developing nations. Archaeological evidence indicates that there has been a village here for over 2000 years but for most of that history it was just a small, quiet village. It rose to prominence in the 14th century, when the Japanese (who ruled Korea at that time) made it the seat of their colonial administration. Since partition in 1948, which created the separate North Korean and South Korean states, Seoul has been a symbol of the prosperity, stability, and economic growth that people in the southern part of the peninsula have enjoyed.

Transportation

International flights to Seoul all come into Incheon Airport, a sleek, modern facility that halfway looks like something out of science fiction. A’REX trains connect the airport to the city with many convenient stops, but there’s not much room on board for luggage. If you’re carrying more than a couple of bags, its best to take an airport bus, which is much more spacious.

Once inside Seoul, getting around is easy. Due to the large numbers of foreign businesspeople who come through Seoul each day, most maps and signs are printed in both English and Korean. The subway covers all areas of town, and there are very few areas that you can’t get to via this method. Outside of the subway, Seoul’s streets are much more twisted and confusing – not at all like the neat grids that dominate many Western cities. It’s easy to get lost if you’re getting around on foot, although many tourists see this as an advantage. After all, what better way to have an adventure than to get lost in one of the safest and friendliest cities in the world?

Popular Attractions

  • Although Seoul has a fairly well-deserved reputation for being hyper-modern, there are many old historic buildings and palaces. The most impressive visually is Changdeok-gung. Elegant Joseon dynasty architecture earned this building a spot on the selective UNESCO World Heritage list.
  • Seoul is a great city for day hikes. The nearby mountains have many trail at varying levels of difficulty with superb views and small photogenic niches. Mount Gwanek, not far from town, is home to the Sammak Temple, a quiet and colorful shrine that sees very few tourists.
  • For fans of comics, anime, and manga, there’s a massive World Comic Convention twice a month. This is a great place to mingle with locals and admire their elaborate Cosplay costumes (comic fans sometimes dress up as their favorite characters).

Food

Restaurants are everywhere in Seoul, and the social life largely revolves around eating out. Western-style food is not always easy to find, which is frustrating for picky eaters but refreshing for the more adventurous sort. Most meals include rice, soup, and small meals made of delicate ingredients such as raw fish.

Tips for Travelers

  • Given its size, Seoul is an extremely friendly city. Locals are famous for their enthusiasm, hospitality, and willingness to help strangers, so Seoul is a great place to be a tourist. However, basic courtesy and common sense are still very important – the last thing you want to do is offend someone who has been kind to you.
