For the best Seoul experience follow the crowd. When you visit Seoul, the best way to take in all the best sites is to start with insider tips from the locals, frequent the places they go, follow the crowd. Begin at Seoul Plaza and discover the surrounding landmarks, including Gyeongbokgung Palace, Jongmyo, Deoksugung Palace, and many other suggested attractions where locals drop in as often as tourists. Like the best cafe to eat at, the busy places are usually best.
