  • Seoul square large and nice rally and a lot of people who are homeless people who are frowned upon. Although it is not required to skate in the winter and ride attractions to see.

  • Foreigners maybe think to be just one of the squares, but it is a special place for Koreans. First of all it is a capital city of the Republic of Korea, it means the center of the Republic of Korea. Many democratization protests have been held in the process of democratization of the Republic of Korea, and sometimes cultural festivals and concerts are held for citizens. Since 2002 Korea World Cup, millions of citizens enjoyed the festival, cheering for soccer in the square. In the winter season, ice rinks are built and citizens are enjoy skating.
  • The hotel we stayed in was across the street from this place. There was some worker prepping the grounds for some events that's scheduled. Unfortunately, we missed it as we checked out at noon. Otherwise, this place is quite interesting.
  • Located at the central of Seoul infront of the city hall...the plaza is dedicated to Seoul people to do activities, rest and walk freely. The day that I went, there was a national meeting of Labor unions.
  • Seoul Plaza is right infront of Seoul City Hall and there is normally some event going on there. I recommend if you see an event just drop by and see what is going on. It's a great experience!
  • An interesting city to visit. I was here for a few days on business and spent a lot of time around this area and its restaurants and bars. Some good memories. Well worth a visit

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.
