Things to do (attractions near by the hotel)

CULTURAL SIGHTSEEING

There are endless attractions to see in Seoul – all steeped in Korean history and cultural significance:

GYEONGBOKGUNG PALACE

Gyeongbokgung Palace, constructed in 1395, was home to King Taejo (Yi Seong-gye) of the Joseon Dynasty. It was also the heart of Hanyang, which is Seoul today. The expansive palace grounds and its architecture shed light on authentic Korean history and culture. Arguably one of Korea’s most famous palaces, Gyeongbokgung Palace is viewable from select rooms in Four Seasons Hotel Seoul and is located near the Blue House, the President’s residence.

Estimated travel time 10-minute walk
Distance 1 kilometre / 0.6 miles

CHANGDEOKGUNG PALACE

Established in 1405, the Changdeokgung Palace is another remarkably restored and preserved attraction that shows a glimpse into the Joseon Dynasty. Changdeokgung reflects Korean harmonization with nature (its buildings were carefully framed into the landscape), compared to the more contemporary Gyeongbokgung Palace.

Estimated travel time 10-minute drive
Distance 1.8 kilometres / 1.1 miles

CHANGGYEONGGUNG PALACE

Built by the fourth ruler of the Joseon Dynasty, King Sejong, for his retiring father, King Taejong, Changgyeonggung Palace has served as residential quarters for royalty and was a park with a zoo during Japanese colonial rule. Today, the restored palace grounds, complete with a serene botanical garden, welcome visitors.

Estimated travel time 6-minute drive
Distance 1 kilometres / 0.6 miles

BUKCHON HANOK VILLAGE

Take a step back in time and visit Bukchon Hanok Village, sitting on the hill and surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine. View the colourful, traditional Korean houses called hanok that date back to the Joseon Dynasty, some of which now operate as tea houses, restaurants and gift shops.

Estimated travel time 6-minute drive
Distance 2.7 kilometres / 1.8 miles
