City Seoul

 

 

Seoul is a dynamic city of remarkable contrasts that offers a wealth of premium experiences throughout the year. A sprawling modern landscape dotted with cultural relics and treasured architecture, Korea’s capital is surrounded by stunning scenery and intersected by the Han River, which bridges the cosmopolitan flair and opulence of Gangnam’s southern district with the traditional charm and mesmerizing architecture of Gangbuk to the north. Whatever your preference, both will richly reward visitors with a wealth of unique attractions and unforgettable encounters. And best of all, it’s less than an hour away from state-of-the-art Incheon Airport, which was rated the World’s Best International Transit Airport by Skytrax.

From hiking through historic mountain trails and strolling through ancient palace grounds that date back centuries to sampling the finest flavours from a host of award-winning eateries and soaking away your stresses at world-renowned spas, Seoul is a city that has everything at one’s disposal for a truly memorable visit.

Culinary Delights

No visit to Seoul is complete without sampling its savoury, time-honoured cuisine. Korean food has a long-standing reputation for being incredibly healthy and delicious, and that still very much holds true today. Countless venues throughout the city present signature dishes that stay true to recipes that date back generations, making any visit a gastronomic indulgence one will not soon forget. Others provide traditional settings with a contemporary twist, fusing global culinary interpretations with local seasonal ingredients. And to further lift one’s spirits, Seoul is teeming with stylish lounges and trendy bars that serve up world-renowned cocktails and boast fantastic selections of whiskey and premium liquors.

Timeless Tradition

Korea is known for its impressive, awe-inspiring architecture. Changdeokgung Palace is one of the most well-preserved, representative royal palaces in Korea and arguably one of the most beautiful. Its peaceful premises, particularly the Secret Garden, where everything seems to flow in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature, make this secluded gem a truly magical place right in the heart of the city. The traditional, ornate wooden buildings are all integrated into and harmonized with the tranquil, natural setting.

Luxury Accommodation

Seoul has a plethora of stylish accommodation that ooze opulence. From traditional hanok stays lining the quaint, picture-perfect side-streets of Bukchon and Gaehoe-dong to premium five-star hotels that offer spectacular views of the city and its surrounding mountains, along with Michelin star dining and unforgettable spa treatments.

Ultimate Relaxation

When in need of a little pampering, Seoul has no shortage of options for visitors to spoil their spirits and bring their energy levels in balance. Korean spa treatments and personalized therapeutic restoration are deeply rooted in tradition and use only the purest of ingredients. Many top end spas have a wealth of homeopathic skincare remedies on hand for optimal results and offer head-to-toe exfoliation for the ultimate experience. Sauna culture in Korea is hugely popular and its capital has myriad signature saunas to choose from for detoxification, boosting circulation and increasing metabolism.
