    Seoul, Soul-t'ukpyolsi Province, South Korea
    So many fun things to do and see.  Go to a palace, eat the food and go to Seoul tower.  You can also google the US military USO for a really good tour of the DMZ (anyone can take the tour).  You'll need your passport.  If you are hungry eat Bulgo-gi or Bi Bim Bap.  Shopping on Dongdaemun or Itaewan will net you some good finds.  You can almost always bargain.  Never take the first price.  Take the #3 bus up to Seoul Tower and see the view.  Also building 63 has a great view.  Using the subway is really easy.  It's all in English and cheap!

    It's expensive in Seoul so don't be an impulsive spender.
    Don't worry about punctuality in Seoul. The Koreans are punctual.
    Enjoy Korean cuisine.

    Seoul , i think is one of the busiest city in the world.Seoulites as what they call themselves love to roam around the city on the weekends.Restaurants and cafes provide good, delicious food for the hungry travellers. Transportation is very easy as there are public buses, subways and cabs. Most of the instructions are translated in English. Likewise, there are some sightseeing buses for tourists to enjoy seeing those places within the city or outside of the city. The locals are very friendly inspite of their shortness in the English language. Seoul is a very modern city equipped with the latest technology for the comfort of its people and the travellers too!what else can i say but i love Seoul and sooner i'll be back in this country to study their language which i'll be needing for my foreign service career.

    Seoul is a geourgouse city!I've been there only for a couple of days but I really loved it!You have big shopping malls open 24/7, can check in to a spa at 4am or buy a nice warm (and spicy) meal at 6am!This is really the city that never sleeps!As a German you have to check out the "Alps" bar - nice bar with "german styled food" and beer you drink out of "stiefeln" - very bavaria like!(ok the beer is mango beer instead of Hefeweizen but was still drinkabel)An other very good bar is the "Once in a blue moon" - there you have very nice food and drinks named after famouse musicans - and while you eat you can listen to live jazz swing music!If you don't speak korean, you should take the black cabs! They are a bit more expensive but the drivers are choosen from the best and speak english!

    Incheon Airport is a great place for a layover, if you need to make a choice between flights based on the airport. There is lots of shopping, the airport is ridiculously clean, and there are internet hookups all over the place.

    For the most part the citizens are pretty nice - However, check news listings about demonstrations especially near US Military bases. Demonstrations do tend to turn more violent then not. The city is very different then shoping in the US. Each part of town is basically set up to deal with one type of merchandise such as maintainance supplies in one section, clothing stores in another and electronics in another. Warning: There is a market to purchase electronic items and pirated movies. The movies are usually taped in movie theaters and definately not good quality as some people have said. I personally will say buyer beware. I would prefer to go to a legitamate store for these items. Pickpockets are severe in some parts of town. There use to be a clothing market and thousands of people are jammed together in a small area so beware of your money, purses and backpacks. This particular clothining market had a severe fire back in 2005 so I am not sure if they are back up and running. Food - Asian food is abundant as you would guess. Good luck on the food but I would honestly not trust the street vendors as they are not regulated for health and safety. American food is also available. Transporation: Beware when crossing streets as most motorists do not regard safety of others and it is common for motorists to ignore traffic signals and signs. Do not drive your own vehicle or rent a vehicle without insurance - A lot of motorists are not licensed nor insured. Hit and Runs are very common in Seoul. The best transporation is the underground subway system which is decent and very inexpensive.
