Dongdaemun History & Culture Park, Seoul

(4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.
