Dongdaemun History & Culture Park, Seoul

4.0
#14 of 45 in Parks in Seoul
See the mixture of futuristic architecture and historical ruins at Dongdaemun History & Culture Park. During the construction of the park, workers found a range of relics, including Joseon Baekja gray/blue ceramics and white porcelain from the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). Start your fortress wall hike here and learn more about the local history, or admire the flower garden light show, which looks best at night. The park serves as a local break spot, so join the people and find some peace in the city.

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.
