The Ultimate Guide to Seoul

This guide is built from the posts on Seoulinspired. It lists the best places to visit, activities to do, and views to see. This list is far from exhaustive – Seoul is massive! But it is constantly being added to, and I hope that one day this list can cover hundreds of locations in Seoul.

While it is still quite short, I have started added to a list of places outside of Seoul, but within Korea. This list will definitely be expanded in time, so check back regularly!

With that being said, let’s get the list started!
