really not that much to see in seoul. you have to go down to gyeongju for all the real touristy attractions. tourism in seoul, as is the case with most major cities these days, is basically a rotation of eating, clubbing, fucking, shopping, bar hopping, and chilling.

i guess you should also take him to insadong

take your brother to an 안마 ahahahahahahahahaa i jest

going to add on a trip to Seoul when I am next in Japan. How long is a decent amount of time to do a little bit of everything? Shop/eat/party etc? I was thinking about 5 days inclusive of a weekend.

5 days is a lot. I think 3-4 is enough, unless you have lots of people to see or can't get enough Korean food.

Hey Thomas. I was wondering about the types of shopping streets in Seoul. It is my first time visiting Korea and I want to experience everything there. Is it possible to see everything in Myungdong and Namdaemun in one day?

What types of things do you want to shop??

Namdaemun = seaweed ginseng souvenirs fake handbags cameras hanbok

Myeongdong = domestic branded goods cosmetics fake clothes

Dongdaemun = fake clothes cheap unbranded goods

Anguk/hyojadong = handfull of hard to find shops selling smaller (and interesting) designer goods

Sinsa/chongdam = higher end shops and some good boutiques

Hongdae = mainly for getting drunk at night but has lots of nice cafes and a few good shops if your adventurous

Itaewon = mainly for hunting loose gyaldem - there are some good vintage furniture shops here though

Hannam = comme des garçon and a handful of newer boutiques
