Seoul Holiday

What are the best places to visit in Seoul?

It's nice to just wander the streets when you're in a new destination, but sometimes it's wise to form a plan. Grab your travel schedule — we have plenty of awesome ideas for your impending Seoul holiday.

With so many renowned attractions in the one place, you certainly won't be twiddling your thumbs in Seoul! First things first, make sure you take some selfies in front of Dongdaemun Market and Gyeongbok Palace. When you've finished with those, you'll still have the COEX Convention and Exhibition Centre and the National Museum of Korea to check out!

Boasting attractions such as the Sungnyemun Gate and Deoksugung Palace, there's never a boring moment in this dynamic city. When you've finished checking those out, continue your sightseeing at the Jogyesa Temple and Namsan Park.

Memorial sites remember lives cut short and past tragedies. Stop by War Memorial of Korea and take a moment or two for some quiet reflection. Travellers in this destination have a great range of options. Many powerful people have lived in Changgyeonggung Palace over the years. If you've ever dreamt of living like royalty, don't miss seeing this stately building. Still got some time on your hands? Many powerful families have resided in Changdeokgung Palace over the years. If you've ever daydreamed about living like a king or queen, don't miss this impressive building.

What are the most popular activities for a Seoul holiday?

Throw yourself into all there is to see and do and head home with the best souvenir of all — memories of your amazing holiday!

This place has a wide range of activities. Here are some suggestions to kick start your trip to Seoul:

What types of accommodation options are available in Seoul?

Got Seoul locked in your sights? You'll be jetting off to the capital of South Korea, so you'll certainly have a large variety of properties to pick from. Book now on Expedia to get the best offers on luxury getaways and cheap holidays!

The Banyan Tree Club & Spa Seoul (60, Jangchungdan-ro, Jung-gu) and the Park Hyatt Seoul (606, Teheran-ro, Gangnam-gu) are two of the higher-end choices in Seoul. Stay at either and you're bound to have some of the best amenities in town. Prefer somewhere cheap and cheerful? Try the Grand Hyatt Seoul (322, Sowol-ro, Yongsan-gu) and the Nungmaru Guesthouse (39-5 Namsan-dong 2-ga).

Another great option is to stay near Dongdaemun Market. Do this by booking a room at the JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul, just 0.2 miles away. Also in demand is the Grand Ambassador Seoul associated with Pullman, 0.7 miles away.

Is there an airport in Seoul?

Nothing comes close to disembarking at Gimpo International Airport (GMP) after a cramped flight. Once you've secured your bags from the carousel and shaken out those stiff legs, you'll be about 10 miles from central Seoul.
