  • Words cannot express how much i enjoyed the walk from subway station to Ehwa University, with all beautiful trees. Lots of cosmetic shops and food stall, along the street. Very friendly people. Love t...  more »
  • The buildings are pretty, but well on the show as a tourist destination? The surrounding commercial district are well developed. However, along the long red as this enough snaps. In some cases, also found the Chinese tourist to come. (not in recent years because of Saad) simply to come out for a walk, Ewha womans University, Seoul National University, is much more than good. Seoul National University is also close to the mountain, and the valleys so the weekend tracking is also easy to make.

  • 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.
  • A nice campus. A good place to visit close to animated neighborhood.
  • It's very nice architecture and nice view for photos.
  • Impressive views as an university!! I will be very proud if I can study here!!
  • 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.
