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.
Go for a jaunt from Seoul to Paju to see DMZ Haemaru Village about 1h 30 min away. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Gyeongbokgung Palace, take some stellar pictures from N Seoul Tower, wander the streets of Insadong, and stroll around Namsan Park.
