Weather in Seoul!
Seoul: (pronounce like "Shoal" or something like that!). It is the capital and the heart of the Republic of Korea, as we usually call it : South Korea. The city has 10.2 million people living in it, which is a very large portion of the total population of S. Korea: 45 million! It is the financial, political, commercial, recreational, educational and cultural center of the country. With a bit of luck you can think of some more "...al's" and you'll probably will be right.There is a rich and satisfying variety of things to see and do, for residents and visitors alike.

Transport: There are good train- and bus connections. At the airport there is a shuttle bus, driving nonstop around between all the terminals. It's free of charge. Just get on and get off where you want.
Activities and tips. One of the things to see, are some of the vestiges of the Choson Dynasty (1392 - 1910), famed for its cultural achievements and various other accomplishments which are still prominent features of the city's landscape, including 5 of the gates and other pieces of the original 10-mile city wall, 4 major palaces and a garden with royal ancestral shrines. They certainly add to the color and charm of modern Seoul. Shop for clothing, jewelry, silk, cuddly toy animals, leather, antiques, sporting goods. In winter: skiing. Visit Songnisan National Park (temples).
