VISIT SEOUL

5 Places To Go

You must know that I am a big lover of Seoul. After my last travel there this year, I wanted to give you some useful information about the city. Hence I decided to write this guide “Visit Seoul – 5 places to go”. Here you will find a list of places to visit in Seoul for the next time you decide to go there.

  1. Gyeongbokgung Palace / 경복궁

    Gyeongbokgung Palace which means “Palace of Shining Happiness” is the biggest remains of all of five palaces of Seoul and probably the most beautiful.
    Gyeongbokgung which is also known by the name of the “Northern Palace” had been erected in the 14th century then destroyed by fire in the 16th century during the Japanese occupation. It is finally restored between the 19th and the 2oth century.

    The “N Seoul Tower” is a nice place to go by day or by night to have a grand panoramic view of Seoul. The N Tower sits on top of the Namsan mountain which explains his name.
