Some visitors spend their time immersed in the city's vibrant food scene, while others walk for days on end between the notable cultural sights. Those wishing to combine outdoor pursuits with a bit of historical sightseeing can head to the surrounding four mountains, which offer sweeping views and numerous hiking trails flanked by photogenic temples.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
