Seoul Holidays

This part of Gyeonggi boasts a population of 10 300 000 friendly people.

Prepare to tick some famous attractions off your bucket list. Dongdaemun Market and Gyeongbok Palace are all awaiting your visit. Of course, you're not going to want to forget about the COEX Convention and Exhibition Centre and the National Museum either.

Seoul is a great destination for families, with heaps of attractions that will no doubt keep the little ones busy. Firstly, we suggest that you check out Lotte World and Seoul Land. Keep the party going by also checking out Children's Grand Park and the Seoul Animation Centre.

You and your family will have a fantastic time at Seoul's popular marine life parks, where visitors have the chance to witness what lives beneath the wide blue oceans of this big spinning planet. With an abundance of sea animals to witness and a spectacle of vibrant colours to see, a stop off at COEX Aquarium and 63 SeaWorld is the ideal adventure for one and for all.

If you're keen for a bit of excitement, why not try your hand at one of the area's enchanting casinos? Serious punters should take a trip to the Seven Luck Casino Millennium Seoul Hilton Branch. Keen for more? Be sure to hustle down to the Seven Luck Casino Seoul Gangnam Branch or the Paradise Casino Walkerhill.

The Seoul area has a couple of lovely landscaped botanical parks that gardening fans will need to experience. Enjoy the distinct scent of fresh vegetation at the Namsan Botanical Garden, or wander around the Seoul Iris Garden.

Visitors to Seoul are often envious when they see just how many green spaces there are here. Keen to live like a local? Visit Namsan Park or Yeouido Park and take in the tranquil environment. Additional choices include Seoul Forest and Tapgol Park.

The freely accessible tourist information centre, Korea Local Information Centre, is open to visitors who want some advice on what to do while here.

Craving a day out in the wilderness? Then make sure you visit at least one of the local environmental reserves and parks. A couple of suggestions include Bukhansan National Park and Mt. Inwang. If you still have some more time up your sleeve, drop by Namhansanseong Provincial Park and Seoul Floating Islands.

Love museums? Then you'll have a great time in this destination. Discover the hidden secrets of the Kimchi Museum or the Sejong University Museum. After those, workout a different part of the brain at the Lock Museum and the Hanseong Baekje Museum.

If you're looking for something to do that is both stimulating and engaging, be sure to pay a visit to the Seoul National Science Museum. Folk of all ages will encounter something to learn from among its varied collections and activities.

If you're stuck with a miserable day in Seoul, the Abraham Park Kenneth Vine Collection Museum and the Seodaemun Museum of Natural History are two good indoor attractions in the area. Engage with the educational collections, see if there are any tours on while you're here or have a good old yarn with the friendly staff.

Seoul is home to a booming arts scene, as illustrated by its wide collection of galleries and exhibition spaces. To begin with, take in the inspiring pieces at the Seoul Museum of Art and Kring. Still want more? The Opera Gallery and the Soma Museum of Art are a perfect way to finish up the day.

Seoul has heaps of fascinating historical museums that are sure to whisk you away on a trip back through time. Familiarise yourself with the mythology of the area at the Seoul Museum of History and the National Folk Museum. The Seodaemun Prison History Museum and the Chunghyeon Museum are also well worth a visit if you have some extra time up your sleeve.

This region possesses a unique blend of old and new, offering history buffs a great deal of things to go and see. Spend a day touring the Sungnyemun Gate, the War Memorial of Korea and Seonjeongneung Royal Tombs. The Sungkyunkwan University is also worth seeing if you're not tired-out from all that walking.

There are a variety of old fortifications in Seoul, which are fascinating reminders of more unstable times. Take a stroll around Mongchontoseong Fortress and Seoul Fortress Walls and check out the manpower that went into creating each structure. Afterwards, if you can squeeze them in, Haengjusanseong Fortress and Bukhansanseong Fortress are also worth a look.

Seoul has various unique mansions and palaces that have housed the region's more distinguished locals. Deoksugung Palace and Changgyong Palace are two renowned locations that you and your children should have high on your priority list. For those who want more, don't forget to visit Changdeokgung Palace or Gyeonghuigung Palace.

You definitely do not have to be a religious fanatic to appreciate the diverse range of sacred sites in and around this region. The Jogyesa Temple and the Bongeunsa Temple are the most visited of these sacred sites, with Yoido Full Gospel Church and Jongmyo Shrine standing as two other good choices.

You can find a couple of other less-known tourist spots around if you are keen to see some more unassuming attractions. Travellers recommend Seoul Grand Park or the Sejong Cultural Centre as decent spots to kill some time. The Seoul Arts Centre and Ssamji-gil can also be worth a look if you're keen to see everything.
