Korea - Around Seoul (PDF Chapter)
This is the Around Seoul chapter from Lonely Planet’s Korea guidebook.
The well-trodden mountain trails of Bukhansan National Park may be only a subway ride away from the city, but they are a world away in atmosphere. Further north, the long-depopulated Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), is the region’s grimly voyeuristic tourist drawcard.
- peek into North Korea for a bizarre terror-meets-tourism experience on a trip to the DMZ
- uncover Korea’s concession-era past with a stroll through Chinatown and the Old Port area in Incheon
- march along the World Heritage–listed fortress walls in Gyeonggi-do’s capital city, Suwon
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Gyeonggi-do, DMZ, Suwon, Everland Resort, Dong-gureung, Namhansanseong Provincial Park, Icheon, Seoul Grand Park, Incheon Metropolitan City, Incheon, Muuido, Deokjeokdo, Ganghwado.
