If you’re planning to travel across Asia, then Seoul is a place that you absolutely need to include in your travel itinerary. The capital of South Korea, Seoul is becoming prominent in the modern world map for its incredibly talented K-pop stars. It is one of those cities that beautifully brings together the old and the new to create a blend that’s nothing short of magical. Though the city is speckled with sparkling high-rises at every twist and turn, you’ll find something that reminds you of its history and culture. The history & culture, the architecture, the tourist attractions and the hospitality of the people are the things that attract a large number of travelers to the city. Make Philippine Airlines Reservations, fly to Seoul and discover everything it is known for. Keep these travel tips in mind while exploring the city.

The Subway is the way to get around 

Yes, it takes time for a traveler to figure out the subway system in any new city. However, the thing about Seoul’s subway is that it is very easy to figure out the routes. It is clean, well-structured and quite affordable. Sure, there are public buses, cabs and rental cars in the city. But, if you’re traveling with a tight budget, then the subway can take you a long way. Pun intended. Hop on a Philippine Airlines flight to Seoul for an exciting vacation.

No tipping please
  
As rude and unfair as it may seem to you to not tip a server, bellboy or a cab driver any place else in the world, it is seen as equally rude if you give them a tip in Seoul. So, if you want to express your gratitude for receiving a good service, make sure to do so vocally and not with cash.

Late night shopping. No, not online.

If you love shopping and just so happen to be a night owl, then Seoul might become your second home. The city is famous for its late-night shopping options that allow travelers and locals to shop to their heart’s content. The most popular ones are Pyeonghwa Fashion Town, Hello APM, Dongdaemun Market and the market at Cheonggyecheon Stream. People also gather at the latter spot to sit by the stream and spend some time in serenity. Book an Asiana Airlines flight and fly to the city for a great shopping experience.   

Countless free things to do

One of the reasons that Seoul features in the list of top international tourist destinations is because it has a number of free and almost free things that visitors can indulge in during their stay. A city that’s up and awake 24x7 offers travelers numerous options making sure that all of them have a great time, even the ones traveling with a low budget. Some of these free or almost free spots are Jeoldusan Martyrs' Shrine, Oil Tank Culture Park, Gyeongui Line Forest Park and National Museum of Korea.
