Interested in Astana? Consider Seoul

Depend on Etihad Airways for your next flight to Seoul. There is no more efficient way to get to the exciting land of exquisite beauty and culture.

Plan Your Seoul Getaway

There is so much to do in Seoul that a visitor never has to be stuck in his or her room watching TV. For instance, Gyeongbok Palace was originally built in the late 1300s. English and Spanish tours are available for visitors to learn more about Korea's architectural traditions, as well as the nation’s customs. Bukchon Village features two palaces, along with quaint cafés, restaurants and art galleries, such as the Art Sonje Center. The War memorial of Korea displays generations’ worth of guns, tanks and planes.

Nature lovers will love climbing the picturesque mountains known as Bugaksan peak. The friendly neighborhood of Itaewon is full of lively bars, clubs, restaurants and shops. People can buy furniture and art work, as well as tailored suits. People can then go out dancing at one of the hottest spots in Seoul, Club Volume. Similarly, the Namdaemun market contains a seemingly endless stretch of street-vendor stalls. For those looking to take a romantic stroll, Cheonggyecheon is a 5.8 km, or 3.6 mile stream with gorgeous waterfalls and dozens of overhead bridges. Of course, you can always hop on a Seoul City Tour Bus to take in as much Korean culture as you can.
