    Try to choose such a day with proper weather. Walk along the wall as much as you can. You will have nice views of the city. Worth visiting.  more »

    Make sure you walk up to the top as it will give you very beautiful view of the city. Worth the hike and time spent. Make sure to drop by at the museum too.  more »

    This is the place to study the walls protecting Hanyang now known as Seoul. Many parts of the wall are still intact while restoration for those parts destroyed by war and neglect by Japan occupation are ongoing. At level 3, there is a door which allows you to go to the wall. Entrance is free. Walking distance from Dongdaemun.

    This gave us an insight into the conflicts that lead to tbe building if the wall, its ruin and its continuing repair.

    I didn't know whether this museum. I'm all for historical information on the Castle.

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.
