Built in 1395, and also known as the "Northern Palace", it is the main palace of the Joseon Dynasty. One of five palaces (Changdeokgung, Changyeonggung, Gyeongheegung and Deoksugung Palaces are also worth a visit), Gyeongbokgung is reputed to be the most beautiful and impressive of this era. Destroyed by Japanese invaders in the 16th century, it was rebuilt and restored in the 19th century. It comprises over 7,700 rooms. Gyeonghoe-ru Pavilion and Hyangwonjeong Pond are still relatively intact. The National Palace Museum of Korea is located nearby. Closed Tuesdays.
National Museum of Korea
The perfect place to get an overview of Korean history, art and culture. NMK (not to be confused with the National Palace Museum) features an incredible range of exhibits, from Goryeo Dynasty celadons and paintings from the Joseon Dynasty, to contemporary artwork and photography. Check the program guide of current exhibits, which often includes exhibits on loan from other famous museums. There is also a popular Children's Museum. NMK was recently voted one of the top ten most visited museums in the world. Closed Mondays.
N Seoul Tower
Opened in 1980 and situated in the heart of the capital atop Namsan Mountain, N Seoul Tower has become one of the city's most popular (and prominent) landmarks. Rising almost 500 m above the city, it affords magnificent panoramic views. The top features a revolving restaurant.
Namsangol Hanok Village
A traditional Korean village sandwiched between modern skyscrapers, it comprises several old traditional Korean houses and a pavilion with a pond that have been painstakingly and lovingly restored. Cultural performances are held here regularly. Closed Tuesdays.
This is one walking tour not to be missed: a circuit that starts at Gyeongbokgung Palace and winds its way through an older, laid-back, more colorful and bohemian part of the city. The street is lined with numerous art galleries, quaint shops and restaurants, as well as the occasional temple (and other surprises!) for a real 'neighborhood' exploration in the heart of the Big City.
Part theme park, part entertainment mecca, part folk museum, part international cuisine smorgasbord, Lotte World truly has it all. From thrilling rides at Adventureland and Magic Island, to an ice rink, laser shows, parades, and much more. Feel what it's like to be inside a tornado. Ride the Gyro Drop and Gyro Swing (if you dare!). It's easily an all-day - and into the night - blast.
