Welcome to the heart and Seoul of South Korea

More than just a colorful backdrop for the "Gangnam Style" video, Seoul's a vibrant, cosmopolitan city that's home to a bustling street food scene, a thriving artistic community, and a skyline filled with a striking blend of contemporary and historic architecture. The capital of South Korea, Seoul boasts hundreds of museums, galleries, and live music venues, as well as regular art and cultural festivals throughout the year. With a Seoul vacation rental, you'll be surrounded by the city's biggest attractions, including the 14th-century Gyeongbokgung Palace, the National Museum of Korea, and the iconic N Seoul Tower.

You'll get a lot more kicks with a little bit o' Seoul

With so much to check out in the city's 25 districts, sightseeing is a major pastime in this sprawling metropolis. First things first, you'll want to check out the lively Meyong-dong district, a major shopping and entertainment hub. Here, you can find upscale boutiques and department stores, as well as the 19th-century Myeongdong Cathedral, South Korea's oldest Catholic cathedral. For a taste of the city's famous street food, head to Gwangjang Market—this massive marketplace boasts countless vendor booths offering everything from handicrafts and produce to the tasty mung bean pancakes known as "bindae-tteok."

Seoul's sights—palaces, museums, and epic views

You'll have to get up pretty early in the morning to see even a fraction of what Seoul's got to offer, but we believe in you. At the National Museum of Korea, you can peruse more than 300,000 cultural artifacts and artworks dating back to the 5th century and beyond. Then, head to Gyeongbokgung, a largely-reconstructed royal palace dating from the 14th century. For a unique perspective on Seoul, you can ride the elevator to the observation deck at N Seoul Tower. This hilltop communication tower offers a revolving restaurant and panoramic city views.

See you (mon)soon—wild weather in seasonal Seoul

Seoul has a humid continental climate, with hot, muggy summers, cold winters, and an annual monsoon season with plenty of rain. Average summer highs peak at 85 degrees in August, while average winter temperatures range from 28 to 35 degrees in January. The monsoon season sees more than half of the city's rainfall between June and September—umbrellas are highly encouraged! A popular destination throughout the year thanks to its wealth of world-class sights and attractions, you'll find that prices on Seoul vacation rentals tend to stay about the same from one season to the next.

From the hilltops to the river in scenic Seoul

A few miles inland from the Yellow Sea, Seoul's downtown is situated along the banks of the Han River. One of the most densely populated cities in Asia, Seoul is divided into 25 separate administrative districts, each with its own distinct feel and history. You can find a number of parks within a short walk or train ride from your Seoul vacation rental, including the scenic Namsan Park. Here, you'll find picnic areas and hiking trails leading to Namsan Mountain's 860-foot peak, on top of which sits the iconic N Seoul Tower.
