Anyone who travels to South Korea’s capital Seoul will easily notice that the city combines two different sides which are equally fascinating: the cityscape as well as the life style of Koreans are both characterized by modernity and traditional culture. Palaces from the Joseon dynasty are surrounded by skyscrapers made of glass, steel and concrete and neighbourhoods of traditional houses (한옥, hanok) lie next to modern business, shopping and residential districts. Seoul represents the fusion between modern technology and life style and traditional culture and values, and it is always in motion, constantly changing. The city offers something, or everything, to anyone: numerous cultural and historical sights, a modern life style, tradition, a shopping paradise (for example Asia’s biggest shopping center COEX), countless entertainment facilities (like Lotte World, the biggest indoor theme park of the world) and opportunities for relaxation.
For whatever reason one chooses to travel to Seoul, the diversity of the city has something in store for everyone. Our Seoul round trip is covering all these aspects – culture, Korean food, shopping, history, architecture, entertainment and nature, nothing will be missed out to offer you authentic insights into the life of the city of Seoul!
