KoreaWe are proud to launch our new city guide for expatriates in Seoul, South-Korea.

Seoul is the capital of South Korea and is one of the most highly populated cities in the world, located in the north-western part of the country on the Han River. With the establishment of South Korea (the Republic of Korea) in 1948 it became the capital, except for a short time during the Korean War.

The tower of Seoul, South-KoreaThe traditional heart of Seoul is the old Joseon Dynasty city, which is now the downtown area, where most palaces, government offices, corporate headquarters, hotels and traditional markets are located. To the north of downtown is Bukhan Mountain, and to the south is the smaller Namsan. Across the Han River are the newer and wealthier areas of Gangnam-gu and surrounding neighbourhoods. Yeouido is a large island in the middle of the Han River and is home to the National Assembly, the major broadcasting studios, and a number of large office buildings, as well as the world's largest Presbyterian church.

Seoul’s skyline is impressive and notable high-rise buildings include the Korea Finance Building, Namsan Tower, the World Trade Centre, the six-skyscraper residence Tower Palace, the Star Tower, and I-Park Apartments

A number of world renowned companies such as Daewoo Corporation, Hyundai, Samsung and Kia Motors have their headquarters in Seoul. The Gross Regional Domestic Product of Seoul contributes to roughly a quarter of Korea’s national GDP.
