There is so much going on in Seoul all the time that it is impossible to be bored while exploring the city. If you are lucky enough to be able to visit, you will quickly find out that the 25 million people living there don't waste any time. The city is busy and it never falls asleep.
High rise buildings make the city look like a kingdom of skyscrapers. Lower to the ground colourful markets will surround you from all places and 10-lane roads will make it feel like you can get to anywhere in the world from Seoul.
The beauty of the South Korean capital city is endless. Expect to come across wonderfully weird food trends, couples walking around in matching outfits reflecting their unique sense of style and a mosaic of cultural vertigo that adds a certain kind of magical charm to the city. By all means, Seoul is ahead of the game in many ways. Locals have set up their own pace, giving the place a reputation of a game changer. One of the most futuristic cities and different to anything else you will ever experience, Seoul should be on the top of your bucket list.
