A trip to the Far East for shopping will often include Seoul.
Also for many nonrev’s, a trip to Korea is their first taste of the Far East.
Seoul isn’t a place that you ease into gently into as much as dive in headfirst. The South Korean capital’s shopping districts are overwhelmingly bright and busy.
The food smacks you in the face (quite literally, in the case of a live octopus) and some foods can be intimidating as anything you will find anywhere on earth.
Seoul makes for a great long weekend getaway. There is plenty to see and do here that will keep you fully occupied for several day.
Encore, a magazine out of Australia, just did a story that gives you the best things to see and do for your first time trip to Seoul.
