Travel Tips to Seoul (ICN)
Flights to Seoul take you to a Fascinating Metropolis
The capital of South Korea looks back on a history of over 600 years and there is no doubt that this has made it a vibrant and diverse city. Although the city’s image is now characterized by modern architecture and skyscrapers due to re-building in the 1960s, there are still some impressive, isolated historical buildings, such as the five palaces built during the Joseon dynasty. Whether you want to peruse the city’s architecture, visit the South Korean shopping mile of Myeong-dong (where you can see dance performances, parades, music and fashion shows) or stroll along the river Cheonggye and enjoy the special illuminations of the city in the evening, there is something in Seoul for everyone.

The Last Royal Residence: Changdeokgung
The “Palace of Shining Virtue” is a royal palace from the Joseon dynasty and a ‘must see’ on a visit to Seoul. Built at the beginning of the 15th century, it did not become a seat of government and royal residence until the 19th century. Access to the palace was reserved for the royal family up until the start of the 20th century, but it is now open to the public. See the audience hall and the royal study of Sunjong, the last king of Korea. A special place in the palace is the “Secret Garden” with its lotus pool, picturesque stone bridges and pavilions.
The Historic Area of Bukchon: Journey into Seoul’s Past
The buildings in Bukchon (“North Village”) were built up to 600 years ago, for the aristocrats of the city. The more than 900 houses have been lovingly restored and visitors can stroll through the entwined traditional Hanok style little alleys to get an impression of past times in Seoul. Visiting during the week is recommended, as it is usually busy at weekends. From 10.00am some of the houses can even be seen from the inside. There are also numerous restaurants, shops and craft workshops here. Make sure you visit one of the traditional tea-houses to round off your stay. Take a trip into the past and visit historic Seoul.
Discover the Seoul Olympic Park
The extensive complex including a velodrome and tennis courts was built along the River Han for the 1988 summer Olympic Games. A swimming centre and numerous other sports halls host regular events. Also on the site are the impressive Peace Arch and the Seoul Olympic Museum of Art (Soma), whose declared goal is to discover and promote young talent. A relaxing tour through the park allows you to discover the sculptures Thumb and Dialogue. The complex also houses the water feature of the Musical Fountain and along one of the footpaths the one-time Mongchon fortress. Discover this and much more with a flight to Seoul.
