Your buddies back home will definitely be green with envy when you share with them all the great photos of you at Gyeongbok Palace and Dongdaemun Market. And after you've finished telling them all your amazing stories about National Museum of Korea and COEX Convention and Exhibition Center, they'll be rushing to book their own trip to Seoul!
You'll have to rise with the sun if you're hoping to see all the fascinating sights that this place has to offer. Deoksugung Palace and Jogyesa Temple are non-negotiable. Sungnyemun Gate and N Seoul Tower shouldn't be forgotten either.
Close to the city center, Lotte Department Store is one spot to consider putting on your to-do list. If you still have some room on your travel schedule, T.um SK Telecom Technology Museum and Myeongdong Street will keep you busy, too.
If you have a bit of extra time and you're happy to travel 31 miles, check out Yangpyeong. This lively place offers up a world of things to see and do. Yongmunjang Market, Seolmaejae Natural Recreation Forest and Yongmunsan alone justify the drive. Situated 40 miles away, Yeoju is another place to aim for. If you visit, don't miss Bandal Art Museum, Yeongneung/Nyeongneung and Birthplace of Empress Myeongseong.

On your way to Seoul to finally see Gyeongbok Palace and National Museum of Korea? Now that's an unforgettable road trip! But you may want to give a bit of thought to exactly how you'll get around. Driving in this heaving metropolis can be a nerve-wracking experience, so choose something small, like a compact car. You'll be weaving through traffic and snapping up parks like a pro. If you'd rather leave the driving for outside the city center, that's fine with us too. Lock in something a little bigger and more comfortable, like a four-wheel drive, and discover the beaches of Gyeonggi.
There's plenty of choice when it comes to rental cars in Seoul. From spacious SUVs with plenty of trunk space to agile compacts, you'll find it all here. Selecting your perfect match depends on how much you'd like to spend and what activities you've got planned. There are some road trips that are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas others don't need much more than an engine and four wheels. Which car will you be sliding behind the wheel of this trip?
