Seoul is the capital city of South Korea. With a population of over 10.5 million people, it is also South Korea’s largest city and its financial, political and cultural centre.

A major settlement for over 2000 years, Seoul is currently divided into 25 districts, and is a fairly organized metropolis, covering over 600 sq. kms. Bisecting the north and south of the city is Han River. Playing an important role in Korean history, Han River was once used for trade to China via the Yellow Sea, thereby making it an attractive region for the Three Kingdoms of Korea (57-668 A.D.).

Seoul features three main palaces, dating back hundreds of years. Deoksugung Palace currently houses the National Museum of Art, while Changdeokgung Palace has been preserved from the days of royalty. Adjoining it is the picturesque Secret Garden, landscaped with ponds, woods and pavilions. Rebuilt in 1968, Gyeongbokgung Palace features The National Museum of Korea, the country’s largest, as well as the Korea National Folk Museum.
Jogyesa Temple is the chief temple of the dominant branch of Buddhism in Korea, making it one of the most important in the country.

Seoul is surrounded by eight mountains. On top of Namsan Mountain in the heart of the city is the Seoul Tower, which offers a magnificent view of the city.
With a large number of domestic and international companies based in Seoul, as well as hosting various international sports and political events, Seoul is a major player on the world stage.

A vibrant metropolis, Seoul offers a culture rich in history and architecture, along with museums, parks, cuisine, shopping, art, and seasonal festivals. Book your Seoul tour today!
