Visited alone one morning, the whole experience, from the audio guide to the artworks themselves was really great. The space was really interesting and well designed. I find that sometimes Asian galleries can be a bit hit and miss, but this was a hit. Staff...More

Arario might be one of my favorite museums in the world. The art contained inside is beautiful, intriguing, and many pieces are by world-renowned artists, but it's the space itself that really drew me in. The narrow nature of the building encourages unexpected, intimate views...More

Whoever is still interested, should check out this place. It's a maze of rooms filled with art pieces, some needing time to be understood. I spent only one hour there (closing time), and left with more questions than answers, but it was well worth for...More

Quirky modern art museum, quirky in the sense of the way exhibits are displayed. You follow a narrow labyrinthine route round the building watching your head for low ceilings in some places.Good cafe too.

Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to
Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed
for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean
homes (called hanok), many of which are found in
Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted
into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses,
and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s
traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side
