Check out my Seoul travel guide and tips at this link: — All my personal Seoul travel tips and suggestions!

Seoul, South Korea, is truly an amazing city to visit! It’s modern, easy to navigate and there’s little something everyone will enjoy. The Seoul subway system makes it easy to get around town and discover exactly what the giant city has to offer.

Surrounded by Japan and China, Seoul and South Korea sometimes doesn’t get all the attention is deserves . Korea is home to a unique culture, cuisine and a fascinating history. If you ever have the chance to visit Seoul, you’ll have a great time!

I traveled to Seoul Korea and was able to do all kinds of things, but I’ve narrowed this list down to twenty five of the best things to do in Seoul — of course there are other things as well but this list is just the beginning and intended to get your ideas and travel imagination flowing!

Anyway, on to the top Seoul attractions, here’s the list in case you can’t see the video:

1. Gyeongbukgung Palace
2. Bukchon Hanok Village
3. Jogyesa Buddhist Temple
4. Suwon’s Hwaseong Fortress
5. War Memorial and Museum
6. N Seoul Tower
7. Myeongdong Shopping
8. Insadong
9. Namdaemun Market
10. Dongdaemun
11. International Itaewon
12. Hongdae (Hongik University)
13. Lotte Mart
14. Lotte World
15. Seoul Children’s Park
16. Han River Walking / Riding
17. Walk along the Cheonggyecheon Stream
18. Hike in Seoul
19. Gwangjang Market
20. Noryangjin Fish Market
21. Garak Wholesale Food Market
22. Korean Street Food
23. Ice Cream Selections
24. Coffee at a Coffee Shop
25. Korean Barbecue

I stayed in South Korea for just over 2 weeks and was able to complete this entire list of things to do in Seoul.

However, even though there are so many places to see and go, probably my favorite of all is eating and sampling delicious Korean food! Korean food is so good and there are so many restaurants everywhere you look in Seoul that it can truly be considered a foodie’s paradise.

If you get a chance to visit Seoul I hope your’e able to do all these wonderful things while you’re there!

  1. b2st__paradise:

    Too much racial/political comments here. This is a tour video for visitors, why you bring bad comments on it?? It’s very disrespectful for the one who made this video, I beg he doesn’t want this kind of comments on his video :/

    1. Calvin Yoo:

      This video is not attractive and poor. He took the video without any information. Seoul is not that. This person took a movie no popular places. Currently Seoul is much more attractive and activity.

    2. Yale Yoon:

      b2st__paradise Yes I know this is a two-year old comment but still applies today too. Mark wouldn’t want any of these bad comments on any of his videos, especially because there’s nothing wrong with them and he’s just showing his love and passion for food and travel with his wonderful family. I really admire him and even kinda look up to him as a role model to become a person who finds what they love to do in life and then work hard to pursue a life doing what you love to do most for a higher meaning. Shout out to Mark and his family for being good role models and an inspiration to many people around the world! — From a Korean in the US

  2. JimHendrix14:

    Im living now in Korea, and it is the best place in the world, their tradition, culture, food, places, actors and actresses, and now i can speak their language and i learned how to write it, I Love Korea!!! ????

    1. jeonju korea:

      2012년의 마크윈의 모습과 2018년도의 마크윈의 모습은 많이 다른듯합니다. 더욱 연륜이 있고 중후해진것 같습니다. 더욱 멋잇어졌다는 뜻입니다.

    2. Qu3en_ A:

      Young Seo yeah, South Korea is a really awesome country i’d like to visit one day

    3. Young Seo:

      I am glad you are happy in Korea. I miss my home country everyday. I have travelled from Asia to Central America through N.Africa and Europe. Finally, I have realized that S.Korea is one of the best places on our earth. Enjoy your time there while you can.

    4. Qu3en_ A:

      Tae’s cute mole just like any other country, some are hot and some are not and dont judge a book by their cover 😛

    1. *Ria* the proud stan of legendary BTS:

  3. SW L:

    1. Benyikoko:

      Wanna be my private tourguide? Ill be there in 2 weeks

    2. Jimmy D:

      Would you like to show me the best spots to take photos?

    3. 좆인실:

      hmujordie here cost is so cheap than usa. Here cellular plan has 20$ to 100$ plan and if you choice 60$plan you can use 5GB and when you use all your data then you can use to continue law speed of unlimited data. And low speed unlimited data is free. And transportation example you can pay to use “T-money card” when you take bus and subway and taxi. Bus and subway’s fee is 1250won that is almost 1.3$ and when you transfer to subway or the other bus from bus. If you don’t go so far distance. You don’t pay again. And if you go so far distance. Then maybe you need to pay 500won to 1250won on second bus or gate in the subway. And kimbab is almost 2.7$ to 3$(3000won). And bibimbab and almost food is 6$ to 12$. If you go to restaurant near of big company or seocho-Gu and gangnam Gu in seoul. You pay expensive restaurant bill.and if you want to go nomal price or cheap price’s restaurant in seoul. You can go to shinchon or hongdae and sillim or if you travel to south area in south korea. Jeonju and busan and gwang ju city. When you study in seoul and i recommend traveling to ride airplane to jeju island. There is so beautiful.

  4. Kate Caradonna:

    Korea is cool but those polar bears look so cramped, dirty and sad 🙁

    1. Aaaal !:

      No different from the ones at Sea World or any other zoo. They belong in the wild. Friggin zoos, free them all!

    2. Revy McFry:

      Cramped, dirty and sad. Sounds like India.

    3. Calvin Yoo:

      This video is not attractive and poor. He took the video without any information. Seoul is not that. This person took a movie no popular places. Currently Seoul is much more attractive and activity.

    4. Time Bomb Terry:

      Something to keep in mind, though. Polar bears aren’t white. Their fur is actually colorless and picks up the colors around it. Their skin is also black. So depending on the light, even in an area that looks impossible to get dirty, a polar bear can look dingy brown, sometimes yellow, or even tinted green. Plus, they are wild animals. I don’t exactly agree with zoos but I also don’t think we can assume the animal is poorly looked after because it’s dirty.

    5. Kelp on Leg in Deep Dark Ocean:

      i know.. i hate to imagine how much stress they have… it must be maddening for them…

  5. Panchi Priyam Phukan:

    #1 Thing to do in Seoul if you are a guy — feasting your eyes upon the hordes of gorgeous Korean women!!!!

    1. Doctor J:

      X Watson no I disagree The ladies in Osaka are the best I’ve gotten. But I might try again in Korea to see what it’s like… for research

    2. hi lol:

      Savero Drunky don’t be so biased…. you know nothing about them unless you had lived here

    3. Sean Wan:

      Benyikoko sure if you like your men to look like women

  7. Sarah Sine:

    Shout out to kpop for making me want to visit Korea! The country looks gorgeous and I can’t wait to check out some of the art museums and shopping areas

  8. Seonju Hwang:

    one more thing to add is eating «KOREAN FRIED CHICKEN». There are so many variety when it comes to fried chicken in S.Korea!! and every Korean literally loves fried chicken… it is phenomenal!!!

    1. JimHendrix14:

      i tasted the korean fried chicken, and its most delicious and tasty fried chicken i ate ???

  9. Payton Hansen:

    I miss South Korea so bad ? That will forever be my home.

  10. BigSirZebras:

    5:26 the one time Mark didn’t love something.

    1. Memoria James:

      There was another time he said a mango was too sour. There have been other times he wasn’t pleased.

    2. moody:

      +BigSirZebras There was this time he was at Koh Samui and he didn’t like this meal from a restaurant by the beach because it was too salty.

  11. squiggly101:

    Eat Korean food
    Eat Korean food
    Eat Korean food

    Eat Korean food

    1. Ching-Chong Lee:

      +squiggly101 i know . it taste great ! i love the food here !

  12. Captain Hindsight:

    South Korea is the most racially homogenous country according to World Fact Book 2014. They have no racial diversity in South Korea.
    South Koreans are racists.

    1. nino L:

      +Captain Hindsight try visiting there first. Then you’ll delete your comment.

    2. John Kim:

      Captain Hindsight just cuz a country is the most homogenous country in the world, doesnt mean that theyre all racist lmao. koreans are racists but not as much so. the newer generation is opening up because of how “dilated” the population is becoming with other races. other issues similar rights wise, homosexuality, being transgender, and even being a woman, are becoming a lot better because of the newer generation. yes korea isnt the best country but it is improving

    3. iiKawaii_Chlxe BTSii:

      Tbh this video has some rude comments about a lot of different country’s that aren’t even involved for rn,.. I mean like USA can be racist because I have experience bullying for being an Asian I’m Japanese….I have visited South Korea and the people there are kind not racist freaks.

  13. wot woot:

    why so many haters in this video? the funny thing is that most of these «haters» are koreans… I am a korean myself but we should stop hating each other nor our motherland. This is one of the reasons why Korea will NEVER get united (North&South) and that other countries such as china or japan always invaded us (just look at the korean history)…, we should stop hating each other and start supporting and encourage our own people!

    1. Nick Kim:

      bakaanikimachisu I saw a lot of Japanese like him. Who are spreading a bad comment everywhere which relate with S.korea. Poor Japanese.


      That nuclear missiles are heading for Japan yieeeeeeeeeeeee

    3. Saijin Jien:

      That’s how Asian are our race are like that , I’ve been lived in German with many difference race but they really understand each others . I don’t know why Asian in Asia hateing each others for their unknown reason , maybe because of the social manipulated of the entire government or the misunderstood of knowledge . sorry not only Korean and Japan hate each others , maybe because of human mental intelligence that can’t understand their existence or their greed of existing . As long we humans are undeveloped we will continue having War , look at USA and Russia as an example . probably all human are the same just their actions and though are different . we all are the slave of the new age society and that’s what we doing keyboard war because it’s fun for some reason . well whatever I too , do like to spend my free time on some comments like this . I like Japan and Korean technology , music , food , girls and their ancient traditional culture . And I like their acting attitude toward tourist , it’s entertaining and friendly .

  14. 장에녹:

    Thank u so much. I’m Korean. but i didnt know where I can bring my foreigner friends. If my friends come to Korea, I would bring them places where u recommended. 

    1. JUNE TUNE:

      +Ai Nishimura Please come to Korea! 😀 If you’re interested in Korean culture, please come to my YouTube channel. I’m Korea and I’m making some Korea travel videos. 

    2. Độc Bước:

  15. Emilia WowMuchFun:

    seoul is such a modern city
    the young generation there has so much style

    1. Doctor J:

      Emilia WowMuchFun same with Central African Republic, so modern

    2. Paweł Gornowicz:

      +Doctor J Are you serious? Comparing a African country to a top 10 economy in the world. It’s a disgrace for South Korea to be compared with a country like central Africa Republic
