There is usually something happening in the Seoul Plaza outside the old Seoul City Hall.Protests however can get packed and noisy so avoid if something is on that is politically motivated. On the three visits one was good and the others to be avoided.

Pretty much the dead centre of Seoul, a huge square ringed by massive buildings and Seoul City Hall. It's got a nice green area in the middle with fountains and a colourful Seoul sign. Beautifully lit at night. It's a busy bustling place by day

We went here in December to see the outdoor ice skating. The price is very cheap. Only 1000 won. The ice skating area is not too big. There are some food outlets near the skating area.

If you go near this park, you should check it out. It's on a great location near Gyeongbokgung Palace and King Sejong statue. There are big "I SEOUL U" letters which are popular for taking pictures with.

You won't find too much to do at Seoul Plaza, but it's a "must visit" for all tourists. You'll probably find yourself in the vicinity anyway, touring Gyeongbokgung Palace and the Lotte Department Store (both highly recommended attractions), and the park is half way between...More
