The other side of Seoul. For vacationers wanting something a bit different from their visit to Seoul, Stay.com has suggestions for some interesting, and lesser known attractions. One very interesting, and slightly unknown attraction, Amsa–dong Prehistoric Settlement Site, is an amazing learning experience. The Earthen fortifications of Mongchontoseong, Pungnap-toseong archaeology museum, and Kukkiwon Headquarters are other examples of unique places and things to see and do in Seoul, but there are dozens more.
