Things to do in Seoul allow you to discover many of the city's charms, including five World Heritage Sites. Start by taking in the sweeping panorama of Seoul from the roof terrace of N Seoul Tower. Dating back to the 14th century, Gyeongbokgung Palace is an expansive complex that provides a glimpse into the private quarters of the Joseon dynasty rulers and encompasses National Folk Museum. For some retail therapy, visit high fashion houses and department stores on Myeongdong Shopping Street. When you get tired of sightseeing, take a relaxing stroll through the capital's only natural reserve, Bukhansan National Park.
