Interesting facts about Seoul

Seoul, the capital of South Korea, is one of the world’s most densely populated cities, with over 10 million inhabitants. The city contains skyscrapers and apartment buildings, as well as shopping districts where you can find almost everything. Seoul is regarded as one of the world’s most modern cities and the centre rises in several layers, from underground level right up to the restaurants high up in the skyscrapers. A stream that has been dug out from under the tarmac runs through the city centre with beautiful boulevards on both sides, and a surreal tranquillity seems to prevail in the courtyards of the city's temples. This is a city that never sleeps and it shows off its most ostentatious side at night, with vibrant nightlife.
