Welcome to the Hatlas Travel's Guide of Seoul !
Seoul, officially the Seoul Special City, is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea. With the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province, Seoul forms the heart of the Seoul Capital Area.
Seoul was totally destroyed during the Korean War in 1950, but since the 1960s, the city has recovered tremendously and is now a remarkable and dynamic megalopolis. However, some districts and places have retained an old-fashioned charm, such as the typical old markets. If Seoul resembles other Asian capitals, you will find plenty of parks and places to breathe. It's a paradise for electronics and a great place to get the latest technology. The Korean cuisine is very original but delicious and is a show with every meal.
