These are the easiest to reach tombs in Seoul (there are several tombs through Seoul). The grounds are very attractive and the cost is only 1,000 Won to visit.

For office workers nearby, this is a good place to visit for lunch or after lunch. Since this is the mausoleum of kings in Joseon Dynasty, visitors normally behave considerably. - Commonly known as Seonjeongreung. - The area is huge. Good to walk in the...More

I didn’t think it was possible to have such a large place to myself. I visited at around 1830 on a Sunday afternoon. It’s surprising to have such a vast forested area in the center of such a large metropolis. It was a great place...More

Only 1000w to enter and it is a nice area to walk around but there is very little information in English about the tombs and the kings and queens that are buried here. There are toilets on site but not other facilities inside. Plenty of...More

Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by
Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important
business exhibitions and meetings are held. The
enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a
myriad of things to do and see, including a large
aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and
zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is
one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
