It’s worth taking a detour to walk past the new City Hall. Which stands imposingly behind the old much smaller city hall. The architecture is extremely impressive and the curves are spectacular! Not much to do there apart from admire the building!

When we try to explain Seoul City Hall, we have to consider other components. The location of the City Hall is perfect and if you like walking you can find temples, museums, sculptures etc. around there. I highly recommend to go there guys!

This building is a world class architectural building. Indoor planting is superb, walls of foliage. Marvellous forward thinking, Seoul is an architect's delight. Stunning buildings throughout this spotless city where planting and foliage profligate.
