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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Korean Folk Village and Hwaseong Fortress. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gyeongbokgung Palace and Myeongdong Shopping Street. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Seoul: Suwon Jeil Church (in Suwon) and Praum The Musical Instrument Museum (in Namyangju). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Insadong, explore the world behind art at Seoul Arts Center, take an in-depth tour of Seodaemun Prison History Hall, and examine the collection at 3D Black Art Museum.

If you are flying in from Vietnam, the closest major airports are Gimpo International Airport, Incheon International Airport and Cheongju International Airport/Cheongju Air Base (K-59/G-513). Expect a daytime high around 3°C in December, and nighttime lows around -5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
