  • About Seoul

    Situated on the Han River, Seoul is the capital city and the largest metropolis of South Korea.  With more than 9 UNESCO sites as of 2010 under its belt, Seoul has a distinctive culture and heritage associated with a history of more than 2,000 years.  Home to some of the world’s most notable companies such as Samsung and LG, the highly-wired city has gained much popularity in recent years due to K-pop and the spread of the Korean Wave. 

    Served by one of the best airports in the world, Seoul is well-loved among East Asian tourists in particular for its multi-faceted appeal.  By day, Seoul is a city calmed by its many shrines, palaces and scenic mountain views on one hand, and on the other, vibrant with business activities, world-class events, shopping and gastronomic delights.  By night, the city never sleeps as well.  Brimming with exotic appeal, Seoul’s nightlife is equally exciting and dynamic with karaoke bars, nightclubs, night markets, night parks and performances.  Indeed, Seoul is a culturally-enriched modern metropolis that will delight visitors of any age.
