What's Seoul Like?
History and culture awaits around every corner. The city is full of life, and neon signs light up the night sky, keeping the city alive through the night. One of the most iconic attractions is Gyeongbokgung Palace, the most grand and beautiful of the five Palaces in Seoul, and seeks to maintain the Korean traditions. Insadong is a popular shopping street in the city, and its narrow streets are packed with shops, stalls, and traditional Korean eateries. Seoul Tower stands head and shoulders above the city, and perhaps best represents the modernization of Korea, offering scenic views of the cityscape. Hongik University Street is the hub of youth culture in Seoul, and here you can find live music performances, street acts, and cheap shopping opportunities.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Seoul
The city experiences a humid subtropical climate, which can cause intense Summer and extreme Winters. The Summer months last from June to August, and temperatures will reach an average of 28°C, although it has been known to reach as high as 38°C from time to time. With such high temperatures combined with Seoul being a city ideally explored on foot, it will be essential to carry a backpack with dry snacks and bottled water. South Korea, and Seoul especially, is experiencing a somewhat craze centered around the West, and many of the youth will speak English. If you are feeling adventurous, you can bring a Korean phrase book for communicating with the locals. You can find the local tourist information center on 18-21 Euljiro 6(yuk)-ga.
