Seoul is a great stopover or city break. Few capitals match the dynamic blend of ancient and modern. Skyscrapers tower over the capital’s 600-year old centre, whilst Seoul N Tower stands imperious atop Mount Namsan - the first visible landmark welcoming you to the city. It is from this viewpoint that you realise Seoul is not only protected by surrounding mountains, but also bisected by the ‘Han’ river, the city’s life-blood flowing through its core.
Echoes of the past in the form of temples, palaces and hanoks (traditional houses) are ideal starting points to understand the city, country and people. Another way is to sample Korean cuisine, from humble meals served at Buddhist temples to elegant feasts once served to dynastic kings and queens. Shopping bargains abound with quality gifts in traditional markets and high-tech gadgets in designer complexes. Such energetic pursuits can be counter-balanced by Korean cultural pastimes such as acupuncture, massage and thermal spas.
The night remains young with the nocturnal vibrancy of Myeongdong, Dongdaemun, Hongdae and Insadong which will excite and exhaust in equal measure. Flashing neon signs of clubs, bars and an overwhelming variety of museums, theatres, markets and malls will ensure your ‘Yin & Yang’ is in perfect harmony.
