Seoul, destination of the future
At the forefront of technology, Seoul doesn't forget its Confucian tradition existing in South Korean social structures. A ticket to Seoul invites you to watch a fabulous and perfect blend between tradition and innovation.
Cut in two by the Hangang River, Seoul displays two very different faces. The Southeast is dedicated to business with the skyline, extraordinary playground of the boldest architects. In the North, culture and history have the upper hand. At the arrival of your flight to Seoul, relax in the Royal Palace's Park (Gyeongbok-gung). One gladly stays there to meander; nose and eyes left wandering through the surrounding landscape. An extended visit will allow you to enjoy all the splendors of the Palace, from the throne room to the Royal apartments. The three floors of the National Museum of Korea won't leave you much rest, but the quality of the collections is worth a visit. Pottery, jewelry, weapons cover all periods from the Paleolithic to Joseon. Complete your cultural program by the Changgyeonggung Palace and the Deoksugung Palace, where the penultimate Emperor of Korea died.
Booking a ticket to Seoul is the best opportunity to immerse yourself in the Korean art of living. Wander the alleys of the Tongdaemun and Namdaemun Markets or the shopping districts of Apgujeong and Insadong. In Bukchon you can enjoy the beauty of the traditional houses made of wood and stones. Do not resist the pleasure of attending a game of ssireum, the Korean fight similar to the Japanese sumo, which consists in using one's strength and address to knock down the opponent. Do not miss the dance show of the Korea House Theater and its pansori, this traditional opera performed by a singer accompanied by a drum. Obviously, you cannot leave Seoul without a Karaoke night, the most popular entertainment in Korea !
