Seoul is all about adventures. Visitors to Seoul have to have a bit of a spirit of adventure in the first place it seems. Elbowing one's way in the local markets can be as challenging as rock climbing sometimes. But with the myriad of parks and green spaces here, finding excitement is the least of a visitor's worries. Be sure and visit Gildong Ecological Park, Seoul World Cup Stadium, Seoul Forest, and especially Seokchon Lake Park during your stay.
