You may be pleasantly surprised to hear just how many free things there are to do in Seoul and although not everything is free, there are some awesome budget things to do in Seoul too! I spent 3 days exploring Seoul – the Capital City of South Korea on my 10 Day Backpacking trip of South Korea and I really enjoyed my time in the City! Seoul is big but not too big. It’s really easy to get around on the metro. It’s cool and modern but traditional too! The recipe for a great City! So let’s...
