How to Spend One Day in Seoul #1

Seoul is not usually the kind of city that you visit for just a day because there are so many things to see and do all over the city. But I’ve prepared a route for you so that you can feel the slightest bit of Seoul even on a short trip. This route includes historic places, old markets, and good places to take a walk. I recommend that you wear comfortable shoes because all the places can be moved on foot and have to walk all day.

I recommend eating lunch around Bukchonhanok Village or Insadong because there are many delicious Korean restaurants and traditional Korean tea house. And I recommend you to experience street food at the Gwangjang Market for dinner.
