Here are the top 5 things to do in Seoul, South Korea.

1. The Yun Dong-Ju Literature Museum:

Built-in honor of beloved Korean poet Yun Dong-Ju, this three-room museum (119, Changuimun-or Jongno-gu) was converted from a former pressurization facility in 2012. Visitors can browse through old photos and first editions of his poems, but the design of the indoor space (and the moods it imbues) is the museum’s real highlight. Take a stroll behind the museum on Poet’s Hill and admire N Seoul Tower from a distance – the view could inspire Shakespearean musings from a hack.

2. Gyeongbokgung Palace:

Gyeongbokgung Palace was the main royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty, located in northern Seoul. It is one of the grandest structures in the city and is a fine representation of Korean architecture. Commonly referred to as the Northern Palace, it houses a pavilion located on an artificial island in the middle of a beautiful lake with three stone bridges spread across the palace grounds.

3. N Seoul Tower:

4. The Jeoldusan Martyrs’ Shrine:

Built on the site of the Byeonin Persecution of 1866, the hauntingly beautiful Jeoldusan Martyrs’ Shrine remembers the many Roman Catholics that were murdered here. The Shrine houses a gallery and a museum displaying implements of torture where you can learn about the site’s history. It’s best to visit at dusk when the glow of votive candles gives an otherworldly dimension to space.

5. The Seoullo:

Seoul’s brand new Highline is called the Seoullo. The Seoullo is a rooftop sky garden located next to the Seoul station elevated above a highway! The Seoullo has 24,000 different Korean plant species, a foot pool, and boasts stunning views of the city. We recommend wandering The Seoullo just before sunset to admire those beautiful amber skies casting a warm glow over Seoul. You can also dip your feet into the sky garden foot pool to cool off during the hot summer months. Also, know more about visit palm beach county and Miami beach here.
