With increasing numbers of people looking for a holiday with a difference, South Korea and Seoul are becoming must-see destinations. An Alitalia flight to Seoul, with its guaranteed high levels of Italian service and mouthwatering food, is the ideal way to start your experience.
Seoul is a huge, bustling city made up of a number of distinct districts, each with its own character and ambiance. After flying to Seoul, exploring these mini cities on foot may be the best way to immerse yourself in the culture of this region. A tour round the Gyeongbok Royal Palace provides some fascinating information about royal architectural traditions. Nearby, you'll find some traditional wooden Korean homes which are fine examples of Bukchon architecture. The shopping experience (try Myeongdong) is second to none with impressive department stores, smaller boutiques, crafts shops and of course some amazing markets which are open round the clock. Seoul is a foodie paradise and is also home to a number of “cat cafés” where you can pet these feline friends.
If you do overindulge on your shopping trips after traveling to Seoul, remember your Alitalia ticket entitles you to a significant reduction on additional baggage allowances.
