Ten million intramural inhabitants, and more than double in the urban area ... lovers of sprawling megalopolises, Seoul is right for you !
The capital of South Korea was founded at the beginning of our era and developed rapidly in the 20th century: the Japanese invasion during World War II was not able to permanently hinder the changes underway, nor could the Korean War. On the contrary, at the end of it, the American occupation goes hand in hand with rapid industrialization and modernization.
Today, Seoul is a city where you can admire, fascinated, the latest electronic news as well as meditate peacefully by a river, in front of a temple. Mixture of exacerbated dynamism and maintained tradition, the South Korean capital is an incredibly exotic destination for a European.
