Ultimate Guide to Seoul Korea

– Things To Do, Where To Stay & What To Eat!

A Guest Post by Jen Barua from Green Travelling 101

So, Why Seoul?

You might be thinking to yourself “Why Seoul? What exactly does this city have that I can’t find anywhere else in the world?” If you weren’t already aware, Incheon International Airport has won “Best Airport Worldwide” on more than 1 occasion. This is a statement to what a world class city Seoul really is! Seoul Korea Things To Do

Another thing that people don’t seem to realize about Seoul is it is incredibly EASY to be a tourist here! You don’t have to learn Korean to enjoy this city. There is a 24 hour travel hotline that you can access any time of the day to get any information you want! I have called this hotline up for EVERYTHING from, “where can I find chicken restaurants?” to “what is the bus schedule?” to asking for translation help! It is absolutely incredible and the service is exception and the entire thing is…FREE!

This city is a perfect example of modern city meets traditional architecture meets beautiful natural beauty. Seoul is home to not 1 or 2 but 5 freaking palaces! You can visit them all during your trip, and all of them have a uniqueness entirely of their own. Palaces are the only thing Seoul has a lot of, there are over 40 different mountains in Seoul alone! This makes hiking one of the biggest pastime for residents living in Seoul. Seoul is a relatively new city, so the buildings and infrastructure looks super new, it is also super efficient! The subway in Seoul makes is incredibly easy to get around. It is very affordable and always on time, you can’t go wrong there! If you happen to be out past the time of the subway, don’t fret, cabs are everywhere. Unlike most places in the world, catching a cab in Seoul is much more affordable than anywhere else.

Hopefully I’ve convinced you of some of the reasons Seoul should be on your bucket list! Now I will share with you some of the coolest things you can do in Seoul.

Top Things To Do in Seoul Korea things to do

  1. Eat!

Honestly Seoul is a foodie’s paradise, with an insane selection of food to choose from at such an affordable price, it is hard to go wrong here! If you are familiar with Korean cuisine you might know the usuals like bibimbap, Korean BBQ and kimchi. Let me tell you, there is oh so much more to Korean food.

The interesting thing about eating Korean food in Korea is typically the restaurant will serve you only one type of dish. Let me list for you some of my absolute fav dishes. To find where to eat these dishes, use the handy dandy travel hotline and let them know what neighbourhood you are in. Then they will advise you on where you can find restaurants serving the dishes of your choice!

KIMCHI BOKKEUMBAP [Kimchi bokkeumbap (볶음밥)]

Seoul Korea Things To DoYou may or may not have tried this variation of kimchi, but let me tell you it is DELISH! If you aren’t a fan of the tart taste of kimchi, in kimchi fried rice you lose that completely.

.

Gamjatang (감자탕)

Seoul Korea Things To DoThis is a lovely pork bone stew with potatoes that is made right in front of you. Most places let you choose how spicy you want this dish to be, so you don’t burn your face off!

.

Kimbap (김밥)

Seoul Korea Things To DoAt first look you might think, this looks like sushi! I know I did, I couldn’t be any more wrong when I put it in my mouth… The rice and seaweed being rolled is where the similarities end. The insides are filled with Korean pickled veggies, you can add egg, shredded beef or tuna as well. This is considered Korean fast food, and it makes for a great snack when you are on the go!

.

Dakgalbi (닭갈비)

Seoul Korea Things To DoThis dish is something I still have dreams about… It is sauteed chicken with cabbage and chilli soybean paste, made right in front of you! If you want to go further you can add cheese to this dish!

.

Galbijjim (갈비찜)

Seoul Korea Things To DoI personally think there is actually no better way to eat short ribs. It is marinated and stewed right in front of your eyes. The meat melts in your mouth as it easily slips right off the bones. By far one of my absolute fav dishes ever!

.

  1. Hike

I already mentioned that Seoul is home to a ridiculous number of mountains all jammed into one city. It would be crazy not to go check out at least one of them! The views are gorgeous and not to be missed! Typically the signs on trails are written in hangul, so for the sake of not getting lost, I would HIGHLY recommend you attempt these hikes with local hiking groups. Check out Meetup for the best hiking group, my fav one was “Climbing in Korea”.

Bukhansan

Seoul Korea Things To DoThis mountain totally kicked my ass, but the view made that totally worth it. It was super rocky with many sections needing you to climb over boulders with hanging rope. This one also has an easier option that isn’t as hard if you aren’t up for the super challenging hike.

.

Inwangsan

Seoul Korea Things To DoUnlike the previous hike, this one is impossible to get lost on. It is super pretty and relatively easy to do. On this hike you’ll see some local temples and shrines, and at the end a GORGEOUS view of Seoul.

.

Suraksan

Seoul Korea Things To DoThis was the first hike that I did when I arrived in Seoul. Boy was it a DOOZY, there is a section on this hike called ‘table rock’ where you are basically hauling yourself up a rock face. Needless to say my legs were pretty much jelly after this one. This one didn’t have great views, but was incredibly challenging to finish.

.

Daemo and Guryongsan

These two mountains are relatively tame in comparison to the hikes I have mentioned above. It isn’t too challenging, but definitely worth the trip. You get to see some breathtaking views of Seoul and see a GIANT buddha at the end of your hike!

.

Dobongsan

Seoul Korea Things To DoThere is only one word to describe this hike, absolutely bonkers! Unless you are an avid climber, the way you climb this mountain will completely mess with your mind. You will be squeezing and crawling through tight crevices and using ropes to haul yourself up through boulders. It is absolutely crazy, however you will feel like the definition of a badass when you do complete it! Did I mention insanely beautiful views at the end?

.

  1. Shop!

One of the things that makes Seoul so awesome is how insanely cheap things are! There are some seriously unique souvenirs to be found here. From masks to bookmarks to jewelry boxes to socks, I could go on and on! One of the things Korea is known for is skin care products, be sure to grab some of this one your way out, your skin will thank you afterwards! Below I will list for you the coolest places for you go go shopping in Seoul!

Seoul Korea Things To Do

Myeongdong

This is THE neighbourhood for all things skin and beauty related. All the top beauty and skin brands are located here. There will be lots of salespeople trying to lure you in with samples, just FYI. If you do make it down here there is this street food vendor that sells these meatballs on a stick. It is the best meatballs I have had in Korea, or possibly ever!

.

Ewha

Located near the women’s college is an awesome neighbourhood to shop for fashion. Since it is in a student neighbourhood the prices aren’t too shabby either! This was one of my favorite neighbourhoods to get my nails done. Which is a must when you are in Seoul!

.

Namdaemun

Seoul Korea Things To DoMy personal favorite place to shop, this is the traditional style market in Seoul. Brimming with locales, you can find some awesome deals here. Also this is by far the best place to look for traditional Korean handicrafts and souvenirs to take back home. Want to get a traditional Hanbok made? You can get one done here! Just make sure to take someone who can speak Korean with you. 🙂

.

Apgujeong Rodeo Street

Looking for designer fashion? Look no further, this trendy neighbourhood has all your favorite designer brands. It is located in the most affluent part of Seoul, Gangnam. It is nice even for some window shopping fun!

.

Dondaemun

This area is filled with high rise shopping malls. Once inside you have a variety of things to choose from. Whether you are looking for clothing, accessories or shoes, look no further. You can spend hours in one building alone, so if you are planning a shopping trip to this part of town, make sure to dedicate an entire day. You will definitely need it!

.

  1. explore the palaces

There are five grand palaces in Seoul, each has their own uniqueness to them. Korean architecture is very unique, so be sure to see what these places have to offer! Below are the different palaces and what makes each one special.

Gyeongbokgung(경복궁) Seoul Korea things to do

Seoul Korea Things To DoOut of all the palaces in Seoul this is the biggest one. Unfortunately this palace has been attacked more than once when being invaded by Japan. Due to this, many of the original buildings have been lost. However it has been restored, but only 30% of what the palace once was is standing today. There are also the Palace Museum and the National Folk Museum nearby which is neat. This palace also has a changing of the guard ceremony which is fun to look at.Seoul Korea Things To Do

.

Changdeokgung (창덕궁)

This palace used to be referred to as the East Palace. The coolest thing about this palace is the secret garden. It is absolutely beautiful and the best times to visit is the fall when the Royal Azalea flowers are blooming or in the fall with the gorgeous foliage. This is probably my most favorite palace out of all of them.

.

Changgyeonggung (창경궁)

Seoul Korea Things To DoThis temple is incredibly close to Changdeokgung and only separated by one wall. You could definitely make a stop over here and check out the two splendid ponds near the back of the palace.

Deoksugung (덕수궁)

The interesting thing about this palace is it wasn’t ever intended to be one! Since the Japanese had destroyed most of the other palaces, this was made to be a temporary one. This is the only palace that feature a lot of western architecture. You can check out the forested gardens and museum located in the area.

.

Gyeonghuigung (경희궁)

Seoul Korea Things To DoThis palace grounds host both the Seoul Museum of History and The Seoul Museum annex or art. A lot of this palace had been destroyed by fires, and only about 33% of it has been restored. This palace was specifically built for an emergency place to move the king if something occurred.

.

  1. Temple hop

Like the palaces, the temples in Korea have a very distinctive look. They are not only beautifully made but are also located in very scenic areas. If you want to have a unique cultural experience, be sure to do a temple stay. You will get to experience Korean temple food and traditions that you won’t get the experience of anywhere else!

This temple is the known for being located in the most central part of the city. As well as being the headquarters for Zen buddhism in the country.

All that shopping, drinking and partying will have you pooped! Fear not, Seoul has your back. Going to the spa which is jjimjilbang is a very integral part of Korean culture. Here you not only come to relax and unwind, but also to detox by sweating in the various saunas. Below I will list my two favorite jjimjilbangs.

Siloam Sauna

The Clay Ball Room

This particular jjimjilbang has some pretty impressive sauna options. There is a room filled with little clay balls that you can lie it. It is super relaxing, there is also a room made of jade, and an ice room to cool off. If you can handle the heat there is a salt room that you can lie down in as well!

Jen is crazy passionate about two things, seeing the world and how to save our planet. She started travelling when she was less than a year old, and got hooked on jet setting ever since! She has lived in 4 different countries including Canada, India, U.S.A (Hawaii) and South Korea. The thing that she loves so much about travelling is learning from other people by seeing and experiencing how they live. About the age of 11, she picked up a book called ‘Oceans in Peril’ It changed the way she looked at the world forever. She realized how much we mistreated not only our oceans, but our planet as well. Just because we didn’t live in the ocean or in the forest, didn’t make it right for us to pollute, pillage and destroy it. It was a horrible feeling, soon she realized if things kept going this way, we won’t have a home to live in for much longer. The beautiful sights and sounds we take for granted at home and when we travel will not be around for future generations to come.

She started educating her friends and classmates through fun plays, showing everyone that being more sustainable in our everyday lives didn’t have to be super difficult or expensive. It starts with the willingness to try and to make small little change which later become habits.

    I really wanted to get to Seoul this year but unfortunately it didn’t work out. Really want to go now though, I never realised how much there was to do!! I will certainly be doing the hikes, seeing the palaces and temples and trying the food and nightlife. Hopefully I can get over there soon.

  2. Cat says:

    Seoul is such an amazing city! There’s so much delicious eats and so many places to shop at! I’d love to go back to try out the sauna and do some hikes as you suggested! Also, going to those cat and dog cafes!!

  3. Raymond Carroll says:

    Great comprehensive guide to Seoul, Jen – sounds like such an interesting city. Lots of weird and wonderful cafes to visit – I’m a big dog lover and like the sound of the BauHouse Dog Cafe. I’m also into trekking and hiking and have heard that there are some great treks around Seoul. Your pictures are great too. Nice work. Thanks for sharing

  4. carlinn meyer says:

    The first thing I thought about when you said what is there to do is EAT! Haha the food does indeed look amazing 🙂 There are so many other things to do though as well so thats cool to know! 🙂

  5. Bhushavali says:

    We as a family are particularly enchanted about Korea. To the extent that my mom took up Korean language classes. I’m hoping to visit Korea sometime in life with my mom!! So thanks for this wonderful listing. Esp all the trekking places are too fab!!!

  6. Diana - MVMT Blog says:

    Dobongsan sounds awesome! I am always up for an adventurous hike, and Dobonsan sounds about as adventurous as it gets. I’m not sure how I feel about the raccoon cafe… they freak me out a bit, not going to lie. But if I know I’m safe around them, I might be ok going there. I haven’t made it to Korea yet, but it looks like there is so much to do in Seoul!

  7. Melissa Jones says:

    I’ve always found Seoul so fascinating, this is a fabulous guide! I’d love to do the “Climbing in Korea” experience, the views look insane! It’s amazing you can climb a mountain one day and then the next you’re heading round the authentic markets and visiting a racoon cafe, such a cool place! I’m definitely making time for a visit in the near future.

  8. Wiebke Siemering says:

    Pinned it because it comes at a perfect time. I will be in South Korea for 2 weeks in summer. I just dont know if I stay in Seoul for the 2 weeks and do day trips or if I move around and stay overnight in different places. What is your recommendation? And how many days would you allocate for Seoul only?

    • Vicki says:

      I think it depends on what you like to do on your trips. As a general guide, I’d give Seoul itself between 3-5 days and then either use it as a base for day trips, or maybe move to other spots to explore. I’d definitely try and see Busan whilst you’re there too!

  9. Amelie says:

    A dog cafe, omg omg omg!!!! The food looks amazing. Do you know how vegan friendly it was? Would die for some vegan kimchi right about now.

    • Vicki says:

      Hi Amelie – I suggest looking at the website HappyCow for vegan and vegetarian restaurant recommendations. Sorry I can’t be of more assistance, I haven’t visited Seoul myself yet!

  10. Fiona Maclean says:

    Gosh what a comprehensive post! I’ve never made it to Korea or Seoul, though I do love Korean food (as served in London). One day!

    Your writing is really exuberant – you sound like you love Seoul!

  11. Brianna says:

    My husband and I were just talking about how we’d like to visit Korea! I’m not so sure about the food, but I guess I have to try it and find out! Raccoon cafe?! That sounds outrageous! I’m assuming all furry residents have been vaccinated for rabies?

  12. Heather Cole says:

    Didn’t realise there were so many places to go hiking around Seoul! I’m not really into cities, but would be great to stay somewhere like this where you can get a good dose of countryside too. Love the idea of a 24 hotline for anything, such a great concept!

  13. melody pittman says:

    Seoul looks fascinating to me! I have never visited Asia at all but this appears to be a great choice for a first timer. I would love to see all of the palaces and that dog cafe, but lets face it. You had me at bibimbap, Korean BBQ and kimchi. 😉

  14. Juliette | Snorkels to Snow says:

    Great guide. We only had an 8-hour layover in Seoul but it was a great chance to get into the city and visit one of the beautiful palaces – the detail in the carvings on the architecture is quite stunning, isn’t it? We also visited a cat cafe briefly which was pretty cute! Loved the shops – wish we could have had more time (and local currency!).

  15. Paul says:

    Awesome guide. Seoul looks amazing, and it sure does look packed full of things to keep any kind of traveller busy! That dog cafe sounds great, would definitely go there first!

  16. Emily says:

    Wow – so many amazing things to do in Seoul I had no idea about! It’s so helpful that they have a tourism hotline – great tip!
    We plan to go in a few years when my kids are bigger. My little girl would love the crazy cafes, and I think I’d go round all the palaces. Love the guards’ uniforms. What’s the food scene like for vegetarians?

    • Vicki says:

      I had no idea how much there is in Seoul either! The crazy cafes are a big draw – and the tourist hotline is such a great idea!
      There is an app called HappyCow that lists all vegan and vegetarian restaurants – which is really helpful in such a huge city like Seoul!

  17. Sabrina says:

    I love these guides where all the important information are concentrated in one place. Extremely relevant and beautiful pictures. This is bookmarked now on my Korea folder 🙂 thank you so much for sharing !

  18. Kate says:

    This is an excellent guide – gosh I am hungry just looking at that food. I had heard of Asias cat cafes – but I not ones with dogs – now I really want to go to Seoul. It looks like such a fun city.

  19. Vicky and Buddy says:

    I have a lot of friends in the military that are stationed in South Korea. I’ve always heard about the great food and shopping there, so it is definitely on my places of countries to visit in Asia. Just because it’s small, doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot to do!

  20. Jetsetter Jenn says:

    Seoul is definitely high on my travel list! The Ice Room looks like somewhere I’d totally want to be. Also, I love that photo of the beautiful stream! What a fascinating city. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  21. Carol Colborn says:

    You got me at Galbijim, my favorite beef stew in the world! But with shopping and palaces and temples, Seoul is a must-see!
