Things to Do & Local Attractions

Among the tall buildings of modern Seoul are many landmarks of the city's past. The royal heritage is especially visible in the older part of the city, where Gyeongbok Palace and Deoksu Palace luxuriate in park-like settings with halls and pavilions among the gardens. Biwon Garden, next to Changdok Palace, is worth visiting in its own right. Visitors should take time to visit Bongeun Temple, the oldest temple in the city. Seoul also is home to shrines to sports, such as Olympic Park, the venue for the 1988 Summer Olympic Games, as well as the Seoul World Cup Park and Stadium. Seoul's museums cover a wide range of subjects from art to history to cuisine. The National Museum of Korea is housed in Gyeongbok Palace, and its exhibits focus on the history, archaeology, art and folklore of the nation. The country's turbulent past, particularly the Korean War, is documented in the War Museum. Natural landmarks are also highlights of the city. Namsan is the hill in the middle of downtown. Visitors can take a cable car up to the top or hike along one of many trails. Among the attractions at the peak are the Seoul Tower and a botanical garden. Trails along the Han River are popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists.
