  • Take the dog to the forest often in Seoul. I think three or four times a month to go. Cherry blossoms blooming Spring Flower paradise, like these in the fall leaves are beautiful. Seoul Forest Park in station and moving on, I went to the Museum or also when it comes to exercise quite a roe deer. In the vicinity of the Castle, you can drink the manual pretty cafes driveway, rolling out these good weather to enjoy a picnic mat. Trails have been foster, pet-friendly places to let in a number of ways. This is where true in Seoul.

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.
