Why It's Worth It

Seoul is a dynamic city fearlessly forging a path into the future while faithfully preserving its proud past. Home of the world’s fastest internet and some of Asia’s oldest urban enclaves, where 100-floor skyscrapers soar above thousand-year-old Buddhist temples. A harmonious blending of old and new beats at the heart of this world-class destination. Between the balance and the bibimbap comes the ultimate urban excursion. —Brad Japhe
