Gastronomy: Delicious Discoveries

When in Seoul, one must indulge in Kimchi, a staple Korean side dish made from fermented vegetables, usually napa cabbage and Korean radishes, with chili pepper, garlic, ginger, and jeotgal. Next on the list is Bulgogi, a delicious marinated beef dish grilled or stir-fried with carrots and onions. It's savory, sweet, and flavorful, often served with a side of steamed rice.

Another savory dish to try is Bibimbap. It’s a mixed rice dish topped with a variety of vegetables, sliced beef, a fried egg, and spicy gochujang (red chili paste). Enjoy it mixed all together to experience all the flavors and textures in one bite. For those fond of pancakes, Pajeon, a Korean pancake made from a batter of eggs, wheat flour, rice flour, scallions, and often seafood or other additional ingredients, is a must-try.

Japchae, a savory and slightly sweet dish made from stir-fried glass noodles, vegetables, and sometimes beef or other proteins, is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Do not miss out on trying Samgyeopsal, which consists of thick, fatty slices of pork belly meat, typically grilled at the table before being dipped in seasoning and wrapped in lettuce leaves with garlic, green peppers, and a dollop of ssamjang (a thick, red spicy paste).

For a unique street food experience, indulge in Tteokbokki, featuring chewy rice cakes in a sweet and spicy sauce, usually combined with fish cakes and boiled eggs. Another street food delight is Sundae, Korean blood sausage, usually filled with glass noodles and served with salt for dipping.

While exploring Seoul, enjoy a refreshing sip of Soju, a clear, colorless distilled beverage with varying alcohol content, usually consumed neat. Another popular drink is Makgeolli, a slightly sweet alcoholic beverage made from rice or wheat mixed with nuruk, a fermentation starter.

As for dessert, delight your sweet tooth with Bungeoppang, a fish-shaped pastry filled with sweetened red bean paste, or Hotteok, a type of filled Korean pancake, typically served with sugar syrup, honey, cinnamon, and peanut granules.

Transportation and getting around the city

Landing in Seoul, you’ll probably touch down at Incheon International Airport. The quickest way to the city would be to hop on the Airport Railroad Express (AREX). It’s a smooth ride and takes around 45 minutes to Seoul Station. But if you're looking to save a bit, you could take an airport bus; just check the destinations and grab the one that suits you.

Once in the city, the world’s your oyster! The subway system here is top-notch, super-efficient and it’ll get you pretty much anywhere you want to go. And the good news is, it’s English-friendly with signs and announcements. Just grab a T-money card at any convenience store; it’s your ticket to ride, and you can use it for buses and even in taxis.

Speaking of taxis, they're everywhere! They’re a good choice if you’re not near a subway station, or if you’re just feeling a bit lazy after all the touring. Most drivers don’t speak much English, so having your destination written in Korean could be a lifesaver. Apps like KakaoTaxi can also hook you up with a ride if you’re more the tech-savvy type.

For moving around, buses are also a great option. Seoul has an extensive bus system, color-coded to help you out: blue buses operate between districts, green buses cover specific districts, yellow buses circulate in specific districts, and red buses are express buses between Seoul and suburban areas. Just keep your T-money card topped up and you’re good to go!

If you fancy some fresh air and a bit of a walk, places like Insadong, Hongdae, and Myeongdong are fab. They are teeming with shops, street food, and a vibrant atmosphere, so strap on those walking shoes and explore!

For sightseeing without the hassle, there are city tour buses, a sweet way to see the highlights without worrying about directions. The Seoul City Tour Bus offers various routes that cover the main attractions, and you can hop on and off as you please. You can snag tickets directly from the bus or buy them online.

Now, have a blast exploring the ins and outs of this lively metropolis! The city’s a mix of the traditional and the super-modern, and there’s always something new to discover around every corner.
