The vibrant metropolis of Seoul which was also known as “Wirye-seon”, "Hanseong" or “Hanyang“ is the capital and largest city of South Korea located at the Han river and the eight mountains.
The “Joseon Dynasty” is the traditional heart of this ever-changing city. Seoul with over 10 millions habitans is one of the largest cities in the world. Seoul hosted the 1988 Summer Olympics and the Fifa World Cup in 2002.
The Olympic Stadium (or Chamshil Stadium) is a nice place to start the exploration of the city. There you'll find Lotte World, a shopping mall that contains an Olympic-sized skating rink and even a full amusement park on the upper floors. While Lotte is the most famous, it isn't the cheapest and there are plenty of other areas where one can go shopping - anywhere where people flocking to doors and greeted by uniformed females!
The miracle of Seoul lies in its contradictions and surprises between the modern (fashion-world, fastest internet in the world, modern cafes and skycrapers) and the traditional Korean culture (old palaces like Kyungbok Palace, near City Hall and big square, Kyungbok Palace was main and official palace of Chosun Dynasty. Deoksugung, Palace of Shining Happiness or The Secret Garden in the Changdok Palace complex - probably the nicest of them all - Tonggunung tombs Chonsugongbang, Changkyong Palace, Pomun-sa Temple and the Toksugung Palace).
For a quiet afternoon head to one of the numerous gardens and parks. Insadong is the perfect place for a relaxing afternoon browsing small shops full of antiques or galleries.

Aside from providing relief from foot fatigue, these foot paths are said toimprove blood circulation and activate the functions of internal organs.
