Seoul is home to a host of bizarre and delightful experiences that will thrill even the most seasoned traveler. South Korea has a fascinating duality to it, one that is reflected again and again in this bustling city. There is a profound depth of history and a past filled with strife, invasions and perseverance, all juxtaposed with a dizzyingly fast-paced youth scene, skyscrapers and unusual forms of entertainment. High-rise apartments and ultra-modern skyscrapers reflect the burgeoning tech-driven economy while palaces, traditional villages and gardens give a deep sense of history. There’s an abundance of unusual things to do in Seoul, from karaoke rooms to temples, beauty tourism to Korean street food. Whether you’re looking for things to do in Seoul alone or with friends and family, you have come to the right place! As a local who cherishes the diversity of Seoul I have seen, tasted and experienced so much of what Seoul has to offer and would love for the opportunity to guide you to some of the more unusual, quirky and delightful experiences hidden in my beloved city.
