The Most Instagrammable Hotels in Seoul, South Korea

Built two thousand years ago by the Baekje kingdom, Seoul has become the financial and cultural center of South Korea. With a landscape of skyscrapers, palaces and pagodas, the capital is a fascinating mix of ancient and modern. From futuristic neon lights to Buddhist temples, the city displays its slightly offbeat urbanism. A major tourist destination, Seoul has three UNESCO World Heritage monuments: the Jongmyo Shrine, Changdeokgung Palace and some tombs of the Joseon royal dynasty. As the cradle of KPOP and the spread of Korean culture all over the world, the city has conquered the minds of travelers. Standing on top of Namsa Park, the N Seoul Tower offers an urban panorama of the megalopolis. The tea houses and stores of Insadong give a first taste of the country. Always lively and rich in cultural spaces, boredom does not rhyme with Seoul!
