One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
Venture out of the city with trips to MMCA - National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (in Gwacheon), Goyang (Ilsan Lake Park & Statue of Peace) and Hwaseong Fortress (in Suwon). Pack the 26th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Lotte World. And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Gyeongbokgung Palace, get great views at N Seoul Tower, steep yourself in history at Jongmyo Shrine, and get to know the fascinating history of Cheonggyecheon Stream.

To see where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Seoul trip website.

Chicago, USA to Seoul is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. You'll lose 15 hours traveling from Chicago to Seoul due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Chicago in July, plan for a bit warmer nights in Seoul, with lows around 74°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
