  • This is a lovely plaza, located just next to the beautiful city hall. However, there was absolutely nothing going on in the plaza during our visit, which was a shame.  more »
  • Just because a political square and there ya go. You'll be in front of Seoul City Hall and people are prone to rally. However, so you can see a cross section of various soul not koika's observation.

  • The Plaza itself is nothing special, what makes this place is there is always something going on. Markets, shows, exhibitions. If you are around drop in and see what is going on today.  more »

  • Seoul plaza is a landmark in Seoul. Unfortunately that is not because the plaza itself has much to offer. It serves merely as a viewing spot for the buildings surrounding it. The plaza occasionally plays host to small markets and fairs, but for most of the year it is just an open space with some artificial grass on it. One highlight is the skating rink that is erected during winter. It's a fun day out with your better half, but do watch out for falling noobs and guys who feel the need to zip around and show off.
  • It is the place to go if you want to protest. Labor strikes, anti-President Park protest, protest for the president, anti-gay protest, pro-Christianity protest, etc. Occasionally they host cultural events every now and then
  • The frequent site of Korean cultural festivals, celebrations, soccer-viewing parties, and protests alike. Sits directly in front of city hall and in some ways is the "center" of Seoul (a designation perhaps shared with Gwanghwamun square, just a few minutes walk north of there)
  • I have there on Christmas eve and it was awesome experience. There were a ice skating rink and a big Xmas tree. Had a great time.
  • Love this place! Great views of the city, a wide expanse of greenery. Fast free public wifi.
