ABOUT SEOUL

GoAP 2019 welcomes you to Seoul Korea!

South Korea has been a must-visit destination for centuries, counting beautiful geographical features, a diverse and long-established cultural history, and delicious food among its attractions. And if South Korea itself is a draw, then Seoul, its capital city, is a beating heart which forms the center of a country that has proved to be alluring time and time again.

South Korea has been a must-visit destination for centuries, counting beautiful geographical features, a diverse and long-established cultural history, and delicious food among its attractions. And if South Korea itself is a draw, then Seoul, its capital city, is a beating heart which forms the center of a country that has proved to be alluring time and time again.

Located just 31 miles from the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that separates South and North Koreas, Seoul is a metropolis surrounded by breathtaking natural features. And the charm doesn’t stop there, with mind-blowing kimchi (a Korean dish of salted and fermented vegetables) and delicious Korean BBQ available all over the city. Korean rice wine is another point worth mentioning, given that with variants like Moju and Makgeolli continuing to grow in popularity all over the world.

GoAP is organizing a trip to the DMZ.

Register for the Demiltarized Zone (DMZ) and Joint Security Area (JSA) Tour on December 7, 2019.

Seoul has something for everyone. If history is your thing, you’ll want to pay a visit to Gyeongbokgung Palace, which was the main palace of the Joseun dynasty and offers tours as well as a museum. On the other hand, if you’re more interested in recent events, N Seoul Tower provides diners with panoramic views of the city—as well as a scrumptious menu—while the delightfully sprawling Namdaemun Market offers visitors the opportunity to pick up just about anything they can imagine. Just don’t forget to haggle!

There’s more to the city than tourism, however. As one of the major global technological hubs, Seoul has become one of the most important business destinations on the planet. Automotive industry giants like Hyundai and Kia rub shoulders with Samsung and LG Chem, creating an environment in which opportunities abound—factors which contribute to Seoul’s current position as one of the most important cities in the economic world.

Whether it’s business or pleasure, cars or kimchi, Seoul promises something for everybody as a land of potential, set against a backdrop of soaring skyscrapers and the constant hum of metropolitan opportunity.
