You don’t need us to tell you; Korean pop culture is kinda big news. Whether it is Oscar-winning films about societal inequality, bizarrely catchy pop music or Netflix shows that will make you think twice about old fashioned children’s games, South Korean culture has taken the world by storm. That is undeniable, but the best things to do in Seoul go way beyond the trend wave and then some.
Seoul is one of the most stunning capital cities on the planet. This place is just about as beautiful as urban sprawl gets, an aesthetic splendour that settles delightfully alongside its famous sights, thrilling bars, innovative hotels and unbeatable roster of delicious restaurants serving up traditional Korean food and all the rest. Strap yourself in because Seoul is about to take you for a ride you won’t forget in a hurry.
