#122 of 541 in Things to do in Seoul

Scenic views of the city from different points make climbing the stone stairs worthwhile, while the fresh air from nearby mountains adds a natural touch to the experience. Make sure you bring your passport, as the military officers guarding the fort require some sort of ID for you to enter. This is a measure to prevent violent incidents, which have occurred at the site in the past.

    It's renowned in Seoul the North evil mountain-where many climbers ~ I went up to Seoul and Castle to protect the amount of navigable in shipbuilding based facilities. Access control at the entrance and had to prevent a thief. 12m is a colossal scale the heights has two 18km. Seoul castles and resulted in the doors is exactly what we know Hong gate, Namdaemun, Gwanghwamun gate, the rebels said. I was able to tell how big the scale. Jongno 2 times from anguk station bus climbed up to the visitor to walk lightly on the rocks below and come down. The military also must bring identification area pecking ~ Please note ~

    A good place to end the easy tracking in the city or district directly into downtown Seoul, connected to the rear may not go away for all the grass like Cruz and an easy-to-track in the city busy urbanites recommend

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.
