  • If you like contemporary art, photos in unusual places and do not want to spend the money, then you must visit this place. Naksan Park is located in 15 ~ 20 minutes walk from the Metro, but it is better to be in possession of a map, because you can easily go astray. It seemed to me, most of the Park is a residential area, which gives this place a special atmosphere, the walls of the houses are decorated with unusual graphics and decorations. At the entrance to the Park you will see a map, which shows the major art objects, but it is worth to show curiosity and you'll find something that is not mentioned in the Guide. One of the pluses of this place is that there is not crowded, and you won't have to wait long to make a pretty photo. I think you will be pleased by this park. For me it will remain a pleasant memory, where I saw something new and responsive, an incredibly lovely and kind people.

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.
