Travel Guide to Seoul

When in Seoul, don’t forget to…

Hike one of the city’s mountains. At 338m high, mystical Mount Inwang is steep but manageable, and rewards you with views across Seoul from its peak.

Go “bird spotting”. First at the Seoul Museum of Chicken Art, closely followed by the nearby – and equally quirky and engaging – Owl Art & Craft Museum

Exfoliate at a jjimjilbang, Seoul’s ubiquitous saunas where friends and families go weekly to scrub and be scrubbed. Foreigner-friendly Dragon Hill Spa is nice and accessible for the uninitiated.

Hit the town Gangnam style. The swanky district immortalised in K-pop star Psy’s hit song is full of high-end boutiques and bars. Explore the young and hip Rodeo Street for some of the best fashion from local designers.

Learn to make kimchi. The spicy fermented cabbage is more than just a side dish – it’s a matter of national pride. Sign up for a class at Seoul Kimchi Academy House and you’ll make some fast friends.
