Area

City Center

Deoksugung Palace, the setting of Korea's modern history in the


late Joseon Dynasty, is located in the City Hall area, in central
Seoul. Here, the past blends with the present in harmony with
royal palaces situated among the forest of high-rise buildings.

The Center of Seoul,


where the Past Meets
the Present

Deoksugung is the only one of the five royal palaces in Seoul


that has been able to keep a modern architectural style. Its main
tourist attractions are : Junghwajeon (Hall), which features the
architecture of a traditional royal residence; the majestic sight
of Seokjojeon (Hall), Koreas first Western stone building, and
Jeonggwanheon (Pavilion), where King Gojong, the last king of
the Joseon Dynasty, used to enjoy his coffee. After touring the
Deoksugung area, you can take a walk along the Deoksugung
Doldamgil, known as one of the most beautiful walking paths in
Seoul. Turn right at Daehanmun (Gate) and walk down the path
that takes you to the Seoul Museum of Art.

Area

Dongdaemun
& Around

The busy streets near Heunginjimun (Dongdaemun) during the


Joseon Period have turned into Seoul's signature fashion town that is
full of clothing shops, retail and whole sale businesses. This area was
also the second in Asia to welcome streetcars (1899), the first to host
a movie theater, and has become Asia's trendsetter.
Opened in 2014, Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) was designed by
the world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid and has become the most
beautiful symbolic structure of the Dongdaemun area.The glistening
exterior of DDP is made of 45,133 aluminum panels, none of which
are the same shape. This unique facility and the nearby Dongdaemun
History & Culture Park attract crowds of visitors every day, testifying to
the vibrant past and future of the Dongdaemun.

Streets Perfect for


Shopping and the Arts

< / >

The Gwanghui-dong area, where the Dongdaemun markets are


located, is also known as the Silk Road of Seoul as the area has
been a magnet for merchants from many nearby countries. The tiled
murals along the Cheonggyecheon stream feature interesting stories
about the Dongdaemun area, including how an item of clothing is
completed in three days and how the Dongdaemun fashion town is a
place that never sleeps.

The walking trail Sunseonggil at Seoul City Wall, a fortress wall that
connects the four major gates of the city, is a must-see site in the
area. Sunseonggil begins at Heunginjimun Gate and proceeds to
Naksan Park and Hyehwamun Gate and is the best place to get an
aerial view of Seoul today. When you arrive at Naksan Park, you will
see Daehangno and artistic streets that are lined with over 90 small
theaters and galleries. Your journey to the Dongdaemun area will
be complete when you visit Ihwa Maeul, which has recently been
reborn as a mural town, and meet some of the young street artists at
Marronnier Park.

Sindang-dong

Ihwa Maeul This is a neighborhood that has transformed itself into a

While the Sinchon and Ewha Woman's University areas represent


the college culture of Seoul, the area near Hongik University, often
called Hongdae, is well-known as the hub of indie art culture. This
is the place where entire streets are filled with unique cafes, freespirited murals, and young designers' outlets that transform into the
stage for a mega festival at night with dancing, music, and young
club-goers. The clubs in the Hongdae area are so popular with
international tourists that the New York Times once picked the area
as one of the top ten sites to visit in Seoul. Recently, the culture of
the area has been expanding as far as Sangsu-dong Cafe Street,
transforming itself all over again as a youth-oriented neighborhood
that embraces cultural diversity.

During the Joseon Period, the piers by the river spread Seoul
culture and civilization throughout the nation. Today, the
Hangang (river) is still the iconic foundation upon which the
culture of Seoul blooms. In spring and autumn, Hangang Park
transforms itself into a stage for various festivals. Other popular
attractions along the banks of Hangang(river) include public
swimming pools that cool down the hot summer weather, making
the riverside the place to be with many leisure and sports
activities throughout the four seasons.

If Itaewon is the global district in the Gangbuk region, or north


of the Hangang (river), Yeouido is the district of global finance
in the Gangnam region, south of the river. Yeouido was nothing
more than a sandy island about one hundred years ago, but
the area began to attract attention when Koreas first airport
opened for business in 1916. Today, it is home to many Seoul
landmarks, such as the National Assembly building, 63 Square,
and IFC Mall, but the true gem of Yeouido is the Hangang (river)
rather than the forest of buildings. When taking a ferry cruise and
sailing on the river, you can view the bridges on the Hangang
(river) that have undergone many changes over the course of
Korean history, and other major tourist attractions in Seoul such
as the beautiful ecological island Bamseom (Islet).
