Essential city info, articles & travel tips from our local hosts
With ultra-modern and traditional roots harmoniously yet visibly intertwined, few places on earth unite the past and present quite like Seoul. The relationship between old and new South Korea is evident wherever you look: old-school street markets are flanked by brightly-lit beauty stores competing with one another to blast K-Pop the loudest; no-frills, retro restaurants serving spicy Korean soul food hold their own alongside chic international eateries; and Joseon Dynasty-era hanok houses coexist peacefully with 50-story apartment blocks. The diverse Korean capital has something for every type of traveler – ancient temples, shrines, and traditional gardens offer a glimpse into the city’s storied past and peaceful legacy, while inner-city alleyways riddled with art and antiques are a dream come true for shopaholics. And if a quintessentially Korean night out on neon-lit streets is top of your list of things to do? The high-end bars of glitzy Gangnam are the perfect backdrop for a soju-fueled sojourn.
