Searching for cheap flights to Seoul from Canada? Well look no further!
Fun, vibrant and bustling, the South Korean capital of Seoul (??) really is a bucket list destination no-one should miss out on. Even the smallest of backstreets are alive with activity in the day, while by night, the neon-lit bars, clubs and entertainment venues bring a unique kind of chaos and noise you’re unlikely to come across again.
When it comes to eating you’ll be completely spoilt for choice. Korea’s signature dishes and international cuisine will set your senses alight and there’s everything available from street food and takeaways to exquisite dining on the Han River.
Home to over 20 million inhabitants from all over the globe, Seoul is one of the most tightly packed cities in the world. But despite its modern metro vibe and youthful exuberance, Seoul is also a place of great history and culture. Joseon-dynasty palaces proudly shown off in the centre of the city display Seoul’s regal power dating right back to the 14th Century. Bukhansan National Park, with its stunning three major peaks, is a mecca for climbers and hikers alike, and the age-old songs and traditional dances of generations gone by are still enthusiastically played out along the street of Insadonggil. Add in notable cleanliness, a very low crime rate, a welcoming atmosphere and seriously fast public transport network and it’s easy to see why Seoul simply goes from strength to strength.
A great place to start is with a tour of the six palaces, including Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung, finished off by visiting the ancestral shrine of Jongmyo. Once you’re ready for something to eat, kick back at one of the beautiful tearooms and cafes of Insadong before browsing the art galleries and adorable trinket shops. Why not then carry on your shopping at the enormous markets of Dongdaemun and Namdaemun, both of which sell pretty much anything you can think of in abundance.
