Seodaemun, a district situated in the northwest portion of Seoul, South Korea, is known for its affluent residential neighbourhoods and historical sites. The name translates to “Great West Gate” in English, as Seodaemun was once the location of one of the gates of the ancient city wall that surrounded Seoul. There are a number of interesting temples and museums in the Seodaemun District, as well as several shopping streets with everything from traditional medicine shops to modern fashion boutiques. This diversity has made the Seodaemun District one of the most popular in Seoul.

  • Take a stroll down “Walking Street”, one of the shopping streets in Seodaemun, where you will find everything from popular Seoul retailers to small shops selling food and handcrafts.
  • Get a sense of what life in Seoul was like in the early 20th century on a visit to the Seodaemun Prison, a museum that was once a prison housing anti-colonial activists.
  • Check out artefacts and exhibits that tell about the natural history of Seoul at the Seodaemun Museum of Natural History, the first of its type in South Korea.

Seoul is known to have some of the best public transportation in Asia, so you will have no problem getting to and around the Seodaemun District located near the centre of downtown. A good place to start your exploration of the Seodaemun District is the Hongje Metro Station, as it is centrally located and has buses to many of the popular locations. If you are visiting the Museum of Natural History, just take the green bus to the museum stop. There are many pedestrian areas in Seodaemun or you can use taxis.
