Yours truly

Seoul attractions to include in your guide. Seoul for the first time visitor can be a little bit daunting, what with so many choices. So, Stay.com recommends the following attractions for the first couple of days of your visit. Gyeongbokgung Palace is always a good place to start, the home of the Joseon Dynasty being so important to Koreans. The figurative and literal heart of the country can be seen when visiting Cheongwadae, and N Seoul Tower affords a great view of the city too.
