About Seoul


Seoul is a city deeply seeded in the past, but busy busting out into the future. Known by the locals as the ‘Republic of Samsung’, this is an IT mega-city. It is a fast paced maze, crowded and competitive. But this techno-savvy city still has some old secrets tucked away between its streets, like the Gyeongbokgung, an old royal palace. To the east of the palace is Bukchon Hanok Village. Here you will find the largest cluster of privately owned traditional Korean wooden homes in Seoul.

Soju, a South Korean alcoholic beverage which is mainly distilled from rice, is cheaper than water – it's a good thing there is hangover food.

If you want to escape the bustle, there are fabulous walking trails around the city. One is the Bugaksan Mountain trail, where several paths take hikers through reconstructed 15th-century gates and along Seoul's ancient fortress wall.

There is a special stew made just for the curing of hangovers.
