    It was a nice stroll through the university. Lot's of females there walking. Felt like one if them old colleges. It is close to summer vacation so it wasn't too packed which was better for walking around.

    The architecture of this campus is truly magnificent. Do try to be here in the evenings to enjoy that evening glow on the buildings. The university is close to a shopping district too, lined with food stalls and stores selling cosmetic products and other quirky stuff.

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.
