    Hi, Lisandro

    It depends on what are you going to do.
    for shopping, I propose u to go to Myong-dong and Dongdaemoon.
    for sightseeing, Kwangwhamoon, Chungyecheon(http://www.sisul.or.kr/grobal/cheonggye/eng/WebContent/index.html)
    for enjoying, everywhere will be good place, but I strongly suggest u "Hongdae" for indie music and clubbing , Chungdamdong for clubbing(little bit luxury district), and Kangnam

    if u ask more, just email me, I can help u

    I hope this helps u

    I have been living in South Korea for 10 years. If you are starting in Seoul be sure to visit the War Memorial museum there. Moving down the east coast you can hike along SeuRak mountain in Kangwon province. Further down the East coast you can make your way to the traditional folk village of Andong. Near there is the old historic capital city of KyungJu which really should be a top priority of any trip in South Korea. I would also recommend visiting DongWha temple which is just north of the large city of DaeGu. Still further south east, until you reach the tip of the peninsula you will find the cities of ChinJu and MiRyang which are both well worth checking out. Busan is very close to here and is the second largest city, famous for it's beaches, from Busan you can either fly or take a boat to the very popular island destination of Cheju. Your return to Seoul can be taken up the West coast stopping on the way to hike ChiRi Mountain in the south west and further north of there is Muju ski resort. Try as much of the food as possible - espeacially all the excellent soups! Have a great trip :) almost 7 years ago
