SEOUL, THE MONOCLE TRAVEL GUIDE
The South Korean capital is energetic and sprawling; its a 24-hour city thats home to some 10 million people and plenty of brightly lit billboards, skyscrapers and shops. The Monocle Travel Guide to Seoul looks past the dazzling lights to discover what, and who, have brought this late-blooming city careering into the 21st century. Its streets may be tricky to navigate but Seouls inhabitants are turning it into an accessible and playful metropolis that respects its roots while embracing the future. Weve amassed our favourite architectural feats from a womens university to an ivyclad red-brick church and sipped our way through the snappiest coffee shops, including one in an old printing press. The hotels we long to hunker down in vary from glittering glass towers to traditional hanok. Plus, weve mapped out four top-notch itineraries. Whatever you want and whenever you want it, Seoul has you covered, be it late-night trips to the sauna or early-morning treks around the hills. Hike up your hanbok and come and meet the people putting their hearts into Seoul.
