One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Myeongdong Shopping Street and Namdaemun Market. Get some historical perspective at Gyeongbokgung Palace and Bukchon. Change things up with a short trip to Eurwangni Beach in Incheon (about 1h 50 min away). Pack the 23rd (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Lotte World. There's still lots to do: stroll through Changdeokgung Palace, admire the natural beauty at Namsan Park, explore the activities along Cheonggyecheon Stream, and brush up on your military savvy at War Memorial of Korea.

To see more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Seoul trip builder.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Gimpo International Airport, Incheon International Airport and Cheongju International Airport. In February, plan for daily highs up to 5°C, and evening lows to -7°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Thu) so you can travel back home.
