I didn’t think it was possible to have such a large place to myself. I visited at around 1830 on a Sunday afternoon. It’s surprising to have such a vast forested area in the center of such a large metropolis. It was a great place...More

I was just there yesterday as it was only a 5 minute walk from my hotel L7 Gangnam. I went for a nature walk and absolutely loved it. It's easy to walk and there are plenty of benches around for those who want to take...More

Only 1000w to enter and it is a nice area to walk around but there is very little information in English about the tombs and the kings and queens that are buried here. There are toilets on site but not other facilities inside. Plenty of...More

This is a UNESCO site that is a bargain for the W1,000 you pay to gain entry. A breath of fresh air and green space in the gleaming, sterile district of Gangnam, it's a good place to catch a mix of history and nature amidst...More

It's a relaxing and beautiful area. Just enough in size to cover in a hour. Tombs are well preserved and the shirnes pretty and well restored. Nice haven in the middle of Gagnam-gu

Located about a 15 minute walk from the COEX convention center, this UNESCO site is easily toured on your own, and a nice oasis in the middle of the city. Only 1000 won ($1 US approx) to enter, you're provided a map with walking paths...More

On our last day, we visited this unique World Unesco Heritage Site about 20minutes walk from COEX. This site consists of three tombs of two emperors and an empress from the Joseon dynasty. This site is unlike the relatively inaccessible Qing tombs near Beijing: you...More

Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by
Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important
business exhibitions and meetings are held. The
enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a
myriad of things to do and see, including a large
aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and
zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is
one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
