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.
Spend the 24th (Wed) exploring nature at Bukhansan National Park. Pack the 27th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Lotte World. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Gyeongbokgung Palace, explore the world behind art at Seoul Arts Center, get a taste of the local shopping with Namdaemun Market, and take a stroll through Myeongdong Shopping Street.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Seoul tour planner.

Washington DC, USA to Seoul is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Korean Standard Time is 14 hours. In March, plan for daily highs up to 53°F, and evening lows to 34°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) to allow time to drive to Yongin.

Located within the capital's urban sprawl, Yongin stands as a city in its own right, but has come to be considered a suburb of Seoul.
Change things up with these side-trips from Yongin: Suwon (Hwaseong Fortress, Hwahongmun Gate, &more) and Cheonan (Gakwonsa Temple & The Independence Hall of Korea). Pack the 3rd (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Korean Folk Village. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Hoam Art Museum, see the interesting displays at Samsung Transportation Museum, take a stroll through Jukjeon Cafe Street, and cool off at Caribbean Bay.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Yongin tour planner.

Drive from Seoul to Yongin in an hour. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of train and subway. In March in Yongin, expect temperatures between 53°F during the day and 34°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
