As you all know, yours truly and is part of Seoul City Government's program called 'Seoul Global Seoulmate'. If you don't have an idea what it is, it's technically a community of people who applied and chosen to be part of the group, people came from different parts of the globe to share & promote everything about Seoul City. You can click the Global Seoulmate Badge at the right part of my blog to access their website.

Part of our task as Global Seoul mates is to do the Missions Seoul City gives us, some of them involves writing articles while some are photo outputs just like the First mission of the year.

Below are some of the places I think is a must visit spot when you visit Seoul City, not only are they accessible via public transportation, these places are also filled with things to do for you to enjoy your trip in this wonderful city. Here are the place I LIKE! in Seoul.


Dongdaemun is Korea’s largest wholesale and retail shopping distric, it has roughly around 26 shopping malls and thousands of specialty shops. Shops are open until around 5am which defines the term 'Shop til you drop'. Aside from ready to wear products, Dongdaemun is also a mecca for aspiring fashion enthusiasts as it boasts a wide array of fabric stores and fashion inspirations. Aside from the shopping district, this also where the Dongdaemun gate is located, an ancient historical landmark in the middle of the busy district.


Famous for trendy bars, restaurants, bars, and shops selling different interesting products, Itaewon was designated as Seoul's first Special Tourism District. This place is a place to go for foreigners who wants to feel the Seoul vibe through shopping, culture, and entertainment.


Last on my list is wonderful tower in Seoul. Located on Mount Namsan, Namsan Seoul Tower or popularly known as N Seoul Tower provides a breathtaking panoramic of the whole Seoul Metropolis.  N Seoul Tower first opened in 1980 and since then became an icon of Seoul City. After the major remodeling and the new name (N Seoul Tower), it now has spaces for cultural activities and performances as well as snack bars and restaurants where tourists can enjoy after taking in the wonderful view of Seoul City.

That's the 3 places I LIKE! in SEOUL, if you have places in Seoul that you have already been or planning to go in the future, make sure to comment below because I really love to know more about Seoul and where to go on my future trip! :)
