Seoul Travel Guide



Seoul is home to many universities, including Seoul National University, Yonsei University and Korea University, the three most prestigious universities in Korea. There are opportunities for potential international and exchange students to enroll in these universities and live in Seoul for an extended period of time. Many of these universities also conduct Korean language classes for foreigners, including some 5-week long summer intensive programmes that might be useful for short-term visitors to learn the Korean language.


Korean ceramics are known around the world for their simple beauty unique designs. Visitors can learn how to make pottery at the National Museum of Korea and the pottery villages just outside of Seoul in Incheon and Yeoju.

National Museum of Korea Phone: +82 2 2077 9000Hours: For class times, inquire in advance
Taekwondo, Korea's most popular martial art:
Kukkiwon, WTF Headquarters.
Taekwondo in Seoul: Sangrok Gym.
World Gym, 765-2 Yeosam-Dong, Kangnam-Gu, (closest metro is Hanti). The gym is OK, equipment is very 80s but has dumbbells which go up to 50 kg, two smith machines and a couple of benchs among other machines. Not good by Western standards and not as good as Chicago fitness club in Busan but definitely good enough for short term training if you are staying in Seoul.
Baseball, Korean Professional Baseball League is very popular and has recently produced talent worthy of Major League Baseball.
