A Tiger Economy is apt to describe the capital of Korea, Seoul. Seoul was something of a Hermit Kingdom when it was the capital of the Yi Dynasty. Today, it has unbelievably risen to become one of the renowned cities in a lot of fields, especially in sports and commerce. Back in the 16th to 17th centuries, the city had been destroyed by invasions of the Japanese and Manchu. The city was crushed during the Korean War. Thus, now that it is rising up again, almost everything or every structure is modern. You'll find high-rise buildings and freeways made of 12 lanes. Still, the city of Seoul was once a home of pagodas, temples, palaces, and many historic structures. However, even if these historic sites would have attracted much more tourists, the city still has a lot of places waiting to be discovered. The remnants of the ancient land of Seoul now coexist with the modern and cutting-edge environment the city has. There are many things to do and to see here. There's the great Korean food that you should try and there's also the popular sport of rock climbing to get a great view of the whole city. Though Seoul is a fast-paced city and has become a city that never sleeps, it still has that side that's relaxing and inviting. Learn more about it below.
