One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
Gyeongbokgung Palace and Cheonggyecheon Stream are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Changdeokgung Palace and Deoksugung for their historical value. There's still lots to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Myeongdong Shopping Street, take a stroll through Bukchon Hanok Village, don't miss a visit to N Seoul Tower, and stop by Insadong.

For ratings, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Seoul trip itinerary planner.
