By Parker Diakite


With a population estimated at more than 25 million, Seoul is a lively city full of entertainment, shopping, adventures, and more that would easily deem it as a city that never sleeps.

Seoul, the capital of South Korea, has more than 600 years of history and home to many historic sites, including the Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung Palaces, Jongmyo Shrine, and Hwaseong Fortress. Following a visit to historic sites, take a trip down to Dongdaemun Market, a large commercial district full of traditional markets and shopping centers around Dongdaemun Gate, a prominent landmark in South Korea. For nightlife, there are plenty of  bars, restaurants, and nighttime shopping to choose from.

Here’s how to travel to Seoul for as low as $361 round-trip:

From New York

Flights from JFK start at $458 round-trip for travel from Mar. 19 through April 4 on China Eastern Airlines. There is a catch. Both flights include long layovers in Shanghai, according to Skyscanner. The best thing to do is use the layover to explore Shanghai. Whatever attractions you don’t get to on the way there, just mark them on your must-see-list for the flight back home.
