  • I went at the concert. Stay away from the center of Seoul, was on the long subway ride. There were many people running in a fairly large park. Nice atmosphere, convenience stores and restaurants. Concerts outside away from the center of Seoul and can I have would also go without.

  • Here to watch badminton match korea open! clean and big park with olympic statue, complete gymnasium hall, some sport fields, and also recreation spots. well kept and clean!
  • The Hall was restyled and now is used to host kpop concerts. I went there to see "Junho's Last Night in Seoul" concerts on 19 and 20 September 2015. It counts a main hall with a stage for 2,452 seat, an exhibition room to showcase the history of kpop from 1920 until today and a small theater with 240seats destined to new artists and indie musicians. Many famous stars performed here.
  • Take a walk through the park and get impressions of the former Olympic park. You won’t regret it.
  • Huge area for walking, picnic and exercising. You can get relax and put out your stress out.

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.
