Three places to visit in Seoul. Seoul is without any doubt, one of the most amazing cities in the world, its culture, its people, all the skyscrapers, the history… There is a countless list that makes Seoul an incredible city. But probably its most remarkable feature, at least for me, is the contrast it has got. You might be in front of an ancient Buddha and at the same time, 100 meters away from a stunning 30m high modern building. This is a must go city, and in case you are planning to do so, here I bring you three places to visit in Seoul. In case if you want to know more about the country, you have available for free, a photo book in the iBook store, you can submit your email for the pdf version too.
This is one of the best places to visit in Seoul, it perfectly reflects what I was saying in the introduction about the contras Seoul has. 180º on you feet and you get this other spot:
After recovering from the Jet Lag, this one was the very first place we visited when we arrived to the city. It is 560m long and 34m wide, the perfect place to start any tour in the city and have your very first walk in Seoul.
One thing you should know about Soul is that, unlike most European countries, there is not a defined city center. Wherever you go you get the feeling that you are just right in the place where the most exciting thing in the city is taking place.
Dongdaemun is probably one of the most visited places in the city, by tourists and locals. It is a perfect district to look for entertainment, some shopping or even the perfect spot for a romantic date. Actually, my friends and I used to say that it was too sad not having a girlfriend in Seoul, it is just perfect for a romantic adventure, plus, Korean couples are really cute, you just feel the love in the atmosphere.
Another great thing about this place is the variety of street food you can find just for a couple of bucks. It is one of the best places to visit in Seoul.
The Han River is the 4th largest river in the Korean Peninsula (494 km), it is formed by the confluence of another two smaller rivers and it flows in the yellow sea. Historically it played a very important role in the Korean economy since a big part of the trade with China flowed through this river.
Currently, is not used for navigation, and it serves water to over 12 million Koreans living in Seoul, and its surroundings are just perfect for walking, biking or just throwing camera shots. And again, a perfect spot for a date. It is one of my favorite places to visit in Seoul.
