Seoul is the capital of South Korea. With a population of over 10.5 million, Seoul is by far South Korea’s largest city and one of East Asia’s financial and cultural epicenters.
Situated between Shanghai and Tokyo and bordered by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the north, the South Korean capital is sometimes overlooked by travelers.

With beautiful palaces, great food and a shopping nightlife, Seoul is a frenetic way to experience the Asia of old and new.
