Flights to Seoul

Seoulites work hard and play harder; flights to Seoul deliver you to a city that has some of the best restaurants, lounges, and nightlife venues in South Korea. Add in the 24-hour "bangs" (rooms), used for everything from computer gaming to karaoke, and it becomes clear that Seoul doesn’t really sleep. And you don’t have to either.

Seoul is one of the most affordable capital cities in Asia. Traveling on the metro costs next to nothing, and mid-range and budget hotels give you plenty of value for your money. From there, as long as you eat like the locals (easy to do when Korean food is so tasty), you’re unlikely to run out of the local currency, the won.

The city is a cool mix of old and new. Every Seoul district has its own quirks and finding your favorite is part of the fun. Insa-dong, Myeong-dong, Yongsan, and Gangnam are just a few to add to your list. Hip student neighborhood Hongdae is a good place to start; it's chock-full of fashion boutiques, trendy lounges, and pet cafes. It’s more than likely you’ll end up in Itaewon, which is a magnet for expats and has some of the best dining and nightlife in the city.

It’s amazing when you consider how quickly South Korea recovered from the Korean War to become one of the strongest economies in the world. And speed remains the name of the game; this is the land of superfast Wi-Fi, an uber-efficient public transport system, and a bullet train (the KTX) that travels at a dizzying 300 km an hour.

Yes, Seoul is a modern city, but one that’s proud of its heritage. Throughout the city, you can see temples and teahouses being used the same way they have been for centuries. And don’t be surprised to see people dressed in colorful traditional clothing (hanbok), especially if it’s a national holiday such as Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving).

What to do in Seoul

Hike in Bukhansan National Park

Bring your boots; South Koreans love to hike, and even urban Seoul has mountains to explore. Just a 20-minute drive from the city, you’ll find Bukhansan, a beautiful mountain with its own national park. You can reach its highest peak (Baegundae at 836 meters) in about three hours and the views of the city from up there are amazing.

Stay up all night in Hongdae

Many of the city’s best nightlife venues can be found in Hongdae, a buzzing student neighborhood. Between venues, snack on some local street food, shop the market stalls, or pop into a 24-hour barbecue restaurant. Start your journey at Hongik University, where there's a handy metro station.

Sing at the Luxury Su

Nothing beats some late-night karaoke, and noraebangs (private singing rooms) will stay open as long as you can keep on belting out Bon Jovi. You can find noraebangs pretty much everywhere, but it’s worth making the trip to Luxury Su in Hongdae, if only for the funky rooms and free ice cream.

Where to eat in Seoul

Byeokje Galbi (Korean)

Whenever Seoulites argue about where to find the best galbi (barbecued beef ribs) in the city, you can bet Byeokje Galbi’s name comes up. The fact that all the meat is from organically fed, farm-raised cattle makes the Korean barbecue here a little bit pricey, but very tasty.

Plant (International/ Vegan)

Vegan restaurants are becoming more and more common in Korea, and Plant is a real treasure. Seoul-dweller Mipa Lee (of the brilliant vegan food blog Alien’s Day Out) serves tasty Korean and international dishes plus healthy baked treats in this cozy, quirky cafe in Itaewon.

Jungsik (Fusion)

Chef Yim Jungsik is a bit of a genius. Luckily for Seoulites, he’s taken all the molecular gastronomy know-how he picked up studying at New York’s Culinary Institute of America and brought it home. His excellent fusion restaurant is one of the best places to eat in Seoul.
