Advice on our Seoul visit

Hi members,

We are planning with my wife to visit Seoul from 20 Mar 2010 to 25 Mar 2010. In these 5 days, what would your recommendations be for places to visit (including some short distance locations around Seoul) and where to stay? Do you think 5 days are enough to see much of Seoul? Thank you very much for your help.

Hello Friends

The weather is at its best in spring, which is also festival time - Buddha’s birthday celebrations and picnics under the cherry blossom make this a popular season to visit, but autumn with its transcendent tree tints, blue skies and music concerts is also highly recommended. Even the freezing winters are tempered by the ondol, while the hot and humid summers are made bearable by air-conditioning. Seoul hosts an endless stream of small festivals, so whenever you visit you can expect a special cultural event or two to be taking place. Splashes of nature are beginning to appear out of the blue: Cheonggye stream, which used to be covered by a road, has been uncovered and reborn, and an instant woodland, Ttukseom Seoul Forest, has been planted on what used to be a racetrack and sports fields.Thousands of expats live and work in Seoul - most enjoy their stay and a few never leave. Their main struggle is usually with the language as English is not widely spoken or understood. Seoul has its rough edges: traffic congestion, ugly high-rises, and not all the characteristics that have lead to the city’s astonishing economic success are endearing. But as with working abroad anywhere, a positive attitude, adaptability and understanding are the keys to an enjoyable long-term stay.

Thanks for reading
Have a nice day
