At the centre of Seoul sits the one-and-only district of Yongsan, which contains many of the city’s most historic and politically insightful museums, and represents perhaps South Korea’s most popular site for holidaymakers from around the world. Indeed, this charming area that blends both cosmopolitan hustle-bustle and unique local flavour features scores of cultural hotspots attractive to people of all backgrounds and ages. Visitors shouldn’t miss Seoul’s Museum of Art located in the heart of Yongsan, which proudly exhibits some of Korea’s best local pieces as well as international artwork. Lying outstretched below the city’s iconic Seoul Tower, which is particularly photogenic at night, Yongsan features art galleries, historic monuments, sprawling markets, and cafes that make any visit to this most charming of Seoul districts unforgettable.

Yongsan is both centrally located in Seoul and exceptionally easy to access via public transportation. As the area is famous for its frequenting holidaymakers, abundantly available taxi drivers are prepared to take visitors anywhere at the mention of a name. Bike rentals are also widely available throughout the city, a particularly popular form of transit in the area. The city is well serviced by an extensive system of public buses, many of which run through the Yongsan district. Visitors travelling via subway should get off at the Yongsan Station. Namsan Park, located on Mount Namsan, is accessible by paved paths, and cable cars.
