  • When I went back and Marronnier Park I've been to many cultural performances. It sounds like you going to the Festival period as many as sitting in the Park enjoying the music at the festival atmosphere of the arc is very carefully. Many of the restaurants back in the Park, so a simple meal and take the time out to see a show at a small theater at the gums so wonderful day dating course.

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.
