Seoul Sights

Seoul proper is a sizeable city, but fortunately for travelers, the central areas of the city are easy to navigate. Most main sights are in a few neighborhoods centering on Insadong, north of the Han River. South of the river, the newer area of Gangnam focuses more on shopping and nightlife than sightseeing.
