Favourite Destinations



Seoul is the most lively and energetic city with the historical, cultural, economic and political center of South Korea. It’s a city that’s leading the way with film, TV and music, and a new raft of bookable experiences offer travellers a glimpse of the city’s thrilling dynamism.

South Korea has four distinct seasons — Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. The most popular times to visit Seoul are during the spring (March-May) and autumn (Mid-September – Early November) months when the weather is ideal and the landscape is at its most striking. Both seasons are characterized by a dramatic change in color – Spring for its cherry blossom pinks and whites, and Autumn for its fiery reds, oranges, and yellows. Here’s what you can expect during every season.

The Five Grand Palaces

Seoul has five main palaces of the Joseon Dynasty. Each of them has an interesting history and worth your time to visit. They are all breathtakingly beautiful and magnificent; words can’t describe, photos don’t do justice. You just gotta experience it yourself. Take my word for it and visit at least one during your stay in Korea.

Bukchon Hanok Village

As ultramodern a metropolis as Seoul is, it’s nice to find a place like this right in the middle of the city. Bukchon Hanok Village is an atmospheric labyrinth of narrow alleyways and traditional Korean houses called hanoks. Exploring its network of streets will take you back in time and give you a glimpse of what Seoul was like 600 years ago. Like the royal palaces, it’s one of the best places in Seoul to rent a hanbok.

N Seoul Tower

When it comes to great views, this place towers above the competition. Standing 480 meters (1,575 ft) above sea level, N Seoul Tower’s observation deck is the best place to get bird’s eye views of the city. N Seoul Tower is located on Mt. Namsan and accessible via road or cable car, though most tourists will opt for the latter. You can purchase tickets to the observatory at the gate.

Eat Korean BBQ

In recent years, Korean cuisine finally carved out its place in the U.S. In my opinion, this is way overdue. Once you land your feet on Korean soil, you should start gobbling up as many different Korean dishes as possible. You won’t be disappointed. But the best of the best is the Korean barbecue.
