We wanted to go already for some time, but the tombs are a bit far from our usual hangout places in Seoul. Despite that, the tombs are easily accessible either by subway (Seolleung station - both yellow and green lines) or bus. There's a KRW...More

This is worth the 1000 Won (less than $1) to go in and walk around. It's lovely, even in winter, and there are nice trails to walk around the burial mounds. There's a video to watch (with English explanations) that was very helpful in understanding...More

Being in winter month, I enjoyed the cool air, peace and quiet in this heritage site. But other than that, there's nothing much to see. Admittedly, entrance fee is cheap at 1,000won. The museum on the right of the entrance is worth a visit before...More

Another UNESCO World Heritage site in Seoul. Well worth a visit; and photo op. Also, just a nice park to stroll around on good weather day.

Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by
Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important
business exhibitions and meetings are held. The
enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a
myriad of things to do and see, including a large
aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and
zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is
one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
