It might sound like a cliche' but you have to see Seoul. Now is a great time to travel to Seoul.
Every chance we get we delve into the captiol of Korea with open minds, open hearts, and more often than not... open pockets. Just recently we took a jounrey up North to the New York of Korea. This time we visited the spattering of palaces that sit like time travelers in the center of the city.
We also popped up to Seoul tower to get a commanding 360* view of the city. From this height you can see the vast Korean empire as it was and as it is.
We found that the most convenient way to get there is to take the KTX. For about 40,000W you can get a great rate on Korea's fastest bullet train. See the sights in style.
