It’s a spacious space that combines a botanical garden and a park. Visitors can get back in touch with nature and learn more about plants through a forest, garden, lake, libraries, and lecture hall in the park.

With its spectacular view of Lotte Tower and the perfect photo spot with a sign of SEOUL, Seoulism has become one of the most instagrammable spots in Seoul in these two years. This bar cafe offers cozy indoor and outdoor seats, as well as a wide range of desserts, food, and drinks, including alcohol and non-alcohol. Although it is a little bit out-of-the-way and crowded, it offers a unique experience with a unique interior, laid-back vibe, and stunning day and night views of Seoul’s cityscape. We recommend that you spend half or a whole day around this area because the popular tourist destinations such as Lotte Tower, Lotte World, Seokchon Lake, and more are all nearby!

If you are looking for a non-tourist destination but still want to learn about Korea and get some good pictures, Seosomun Historical Park is the best choice for you! Formerly Seosomun Neighborhood Park, the park’s name changed to Seosomun Historical Park after the renovation. It’s now a cultural complex that features a history museum as well as a park. You can learn about the history of Catholic martyrs through the museum and the mausoleum, which was built in 1984. As for the best spots for Instagram, Sky Square, a memorial hall to commemorate the martyrs, is great for photos and views as there’s no ceiling so that you can look up to the sky. Also, the red wall plaza is a popular spot where you can take a hipster-style photo!
