Strikingly modern skyscrapers exist in harmony and balance with traditional architecture in the cosmopolitan South Korean capital city of Seoul. Although acres of green spaces dot the city’s landscape, Seoul’s hotel guests can still experience succulent food and decadent shopping diversions that are en par with those found anywhere else in the world.
Seoul’s choice accommodations boast close proximity to the opulent Gyeongbokgung Palace, built in 1395. Close by, you can also explore the National Palace Museum of Korea, and the National Folk Museum.
Seoul is the perfect canvas for the contemporary art lover. Famed galleries, eccentrically modern outdoor sculptures, and glamorous structures the likes of the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art and Hyundai’s Tangent Building are just a brief ride for Seoul’s hotel guests.
Experience the surreal at the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea. Relax in a jimjibang, Korea’s traditional sauna. Stroll through the heart of Seoul along Cheong-gye-Cheon stream. Hike around the mountains and ancient fortress walls surrounding this storied, mystical city. Bike along the Han. Haggle for goods at Namdaemum Market, or shop the elegant, lithe boutiques in Myeong-dong. Sip herbal tea to the sounds of falling water and flitting birds at the diminutive Yetchatjip tea shop in Insadong
One of the most underrated travel destinations in Asia, Seoul and its hotels stand ready to roll out the proverbial red carpet just in time for your next planned travel setting.
