Destination guide

Seoul – South Korea's captivating capital

Seoul is today firmly established as one of Asia's most mesmerising modern metropolises, renowned for its soaring skyscrapers, thriving tech scene and luxurious shopping malls. But the stimulating South Korean capital is also deeply rooted in tradition, as evinced by the tranquil Buddhist temples, sacred shrines and medieval palaces that punctuate its futuristic cityscape. Its dining scene is legendary, running the gamut from sensational street food to Michelin-star haute cuisine. And its alluringly ostentatious nightlife will teach you the true meaning of local rapper Psy's global mega-hit "Gangnam Style". Seoul holiday rentals range from simple homestays to luxurious penthouses, so you're bound to find one that suits your needs.

Things to do

Seoul attractions

You'll find all manner of awesome attractions virtually on the doorstep of your Seoul holiday rental. Get your bearings in thrilling style with a trip up to the observation deck atop the N Seoul Tower. Perched on a natural peak and soaring to a height of 236 metres, it offers unobstructed views of the entire city and the majestic surrounding mountains. For a day of thrilling family fun, head to Everland. Located around 22 miles south of central Seoul, it's South Korea's answer to Disneyland, with nerve-shredding thrill rides, colourful child-friendly attractions and a beautifully maintained zoo. For an enthralling, but altogether more sobering experience, head north of the city to the Demilitarized Zone, where you can learn all about the precarious state of relations between North and South Korea.


Cook up a storm or unleash your inner artisan

If you're in the market for city-break staples like shopping and gallery-hopping, Seoul is sure to delight. But if you'd like to return home with useful new skills, you could enrol on a cooking course, and learn how to make authentic kimchi, melt-in-the-mouth bulgogi and lip-smacking Korean barbecue from scratch. Should you wish to explore your creative side even further, the National Museum of Korea and other institutions offer English-language classes in traditional local crafts like pottery, metal art and seal-making. If you fancy yourself as more of an athlete than an artisan, you could try a taster class in taekwondo, South Korea's graceful national sport.


Vivid seasons in Seoul

Seoul holiday rentals are in particularly high demand during the peak summer travel months of June to August. However, this also constitutes the city's monsoon season, with intense humidity and heavy downpours. If your travel dates are flexible, you may prefer to visit in the shoulder seasons of spring or autumn, when temperatures are more pleasant and rainfall is significantly lower. Winters are positively chilly, with regular snowfall turning the surrounding mountains into vibrant ski resorts.

Natural features

Mesmerising mountain hikes around Seoul

Seoul may be synonymous with urban sprawl, but nearby mountains offer blissful respite from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Mount Bukhan is easily accessible by public transport, and you can comfortably reach its summit in a few hours, as long as you're in reasonable physical shape. You'll walk through fragrant forests and past secluded temples, and be rewarded with breathtaking views of jagged granite peaks and the city you left behind.
