The Diverse Appeal of Seoul
Seoul is divided into two halves by the Han River. There are a great number of historical treasures hidden in the districts of Seoul than just its crowd of high-rise apartments. Jongno lies at the heart of the five major tourist districts at the northern part of Seoul while there are two more to the south. Along with Jongno, Gwanghwamun is also the cultural, political and economic center of Seoul. You will simply love visiting the ancient royal palaces like Changgyeong, Deoksu, Gyeongbok, the Chogyesa Temple and the National Museum at Jongno.
