Things to Do in Seoul, Korea

By Polyglot Petra 2/7/24

Next to Japan, but one of the most underrated Asian destination is South Korea. Seoul, to be exact. While most people associate Korea with K-Pop, it's got so much more to offer. You won't know until you go!


The city's biggest ancient palace and the biggest MUST!

Entry costs around 2 USD, unless you rent a Hanbok (traditional Korean dress), then you enter for free. You can spend an hour or two strolling around on your own, or join one of the free guided tours for historical snippets..

Don't miss out on the Changing of the Guards ceremony, taking place at 10am and 2pm every day!

Visit a jjimjilbang

The traditional Korean sauna complex is a locals' favorite!

Whenever the weekend comes around, you can bet on finding all the locals hanging out in a sauna complex. This is the most local option possible for those who like to fully immerse.

Whether it's a pool day or a sauna day that you need, a Jjimjilbang will answer to that need. There are pool rooms you can go into as well as sauna rooms. If you'd like to learn more about how to visit one, swipe up!

Starfield Library

In my opinion, one of the most gorgeous modern-style libraries.

There's a small English section if you really want to read something.  If not, you can bring your book, or your laptop, and find a good spot to work. There's a cute café inside!
