Filled with hidden treasures waiting to be discovered, Seoul invites travelers to unearth its many gems, and Seoul Tourism Organization is here to help travelers do just that. Through thoughtfully created initiatives like the Theme Tourism County Competition, Seoul Tourism Organization works closely with local districts to identify and showcase what makes each district unique and charming in all seasons.

Take a brief journey now through the four Seoul districts of Gangnam-gu, Gangbuk-gu, Jung-gu and Songpa-gu for inspiration on your next trip to South Korea’s capital city. Whether traveling in spring, fall or even winter, these districts have something great in store for visitors.

Experience the Real Gangnam with Themed Weekly Tours

Presenting diverse themes each week, Gangnam-gu invites travelers to explore its culture, history, trends and even relaxation methods through a series of small-group, lifestyle-focused tours. These tours include exploring Bongeunsa Temple and Seolleung Royal Tomb for a healing and cultural experience, a series of dance classes to channel your inner K-pop idol, and a nighttime city run along Yangjaecheon Stream. Art enthusiasts can immerse themselves in the world of art by strolling through Art City Gangnam, while those interested in exploring the lifestyles of the district can visit Daechidong academies and Eunma Shopping Street.

In addition to these centers, Gangbuk-gu also offers a wide variety of tofu and vegetable dishes, with produce hailing from the very same mountains for an authentic tasting experience

Witness the Enchantment of Seokchon Lake in Songpa-gu

Situated within Songpa-gu district, Seokchon lake is the city’s only natural lake, drawing visitors and locals alike from far and wide. In spring, cherry blossoms along the lake erupt into vibrant colors, while hues of red, yellow and orange burst on the scene in autumn. Further highlighting the lake’s beauty, through Dec. 3, the district is showcasing a media, art and photo exhibition around the west side of the lake.
