What to do in Seoul in Winter 2019

When visiting in the winter and early spring it is important to be prepared for the coldness and dryness. Most of the winds at this time of year blow in from eastern Siberia which can often lead to temperatures below those found in major cities at similar latitudes. Luckily the city is just as beautiful in the cold as it is in the warmth - so long as you are bundled up warmly and have the heat turned on in your car rental in Seoul. One such example of a beautiful place to visit in the winter is Boramae Park. This park sits on a former site of the Korean Air Force Academy. It was refurbished into a park in 1986 and is around 360,000 square meters. It is surrounded by beautiful willow trees and ponds. Another great winter activity is to visit the Seoul Plaza Ice Skating Rink, open from December 21 to February 10. Driving around Seoul in the winter can be quite treacherous at times, so be sure to take extra precaution if there is snow or ice on the roads. We recommend that you rent an SUV or a vehicle that comes in either all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive to ensure that you have traction between you and the road. Adding an optional GPS system will also help ensure you arrive at your destination safely and efficiently.

Traffic Information

Driving a rent a car in Seoul is akin to driving through any major city. As an international driver, it is always important to learn the rules of the road before you embark on your voyage. Be sure to check if you need an International Driver's License or other documents for your trip. While it might be intimidating at first, you will surely feel comfortable after just a few minutes on the road. We highly recommend that you take advantage of our option GPS service to know the fastest and most economical ways to arrive at your destination. As with most destinations, sticking to the outer ring roads will be the easiest and quickest way to traverse long distances in town. However, should you want to drive into one of the central areas, be prepared for traffic jams. One tip is to try and determine the parking situation of your final destination, as finding convenient street parking is usually quite difficult in this densely populated city.

Sixt Tips

Seoul is a massive city. With a municipal population of more than 11 million people and a metropolitan population of more than 25 million, the city is packed with people at all times. This includes its roads. However, having such a large amount of people means that there are so many exciting and memorable things to do and see while there. The city exhibits a fascinating and unmatched blend of ancient traditions with leading, cutting-edge technologies. It is home to a plethora of street food vendors and a selection of night life for anybody to find something worth doing. The history of Seoul is very long and complex. The earliest evidence of human settlement dates all the way back to 18 BC. Seoul as the capital city of Korea, however, dates to the 14th century when it was called Hanseong and was the capital of the Joseon Dynasty. Despite its long and storied past, much of modern-day Seoul is just that. The infrastructure is exceptionally high-tech, with tons of skyscrapers and clean roads. While you can see the main city sites in just a few days, you would need weeks to truly digest and adsorb all that this world-renowned city has to offer.

Sightseeing Destinations

No trip to Seoul is complete without visiting one of the many beautiful and historic palaces. Two of the best to visit in our rent a car in Seoul are Gyeongbok-gung and Changdeok-gung. Gyeongbok-gung is the grandest palace in town. It dates to the Joseon Dynasty during which it was the seat of power for hundreds of years before it was destroyed by the Japanese during their invasion of 1592. Luckily, large parts of the palace have been restored to its previous beauty for visitors and locals alike to enjoy. The vast grounds now house the Korean Folk and Joseon Palace Museums. Changdeok-gung is the second grandest palace in town. It was first built back in 1405 and was the seat of Korean power between 1618 and 1896. The palace is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site and is famous for its beautiful buildings including the blue-roofed Seonjeongjeon, the Daejojeon or Great Making Hall, his bedchamber, and the Huwon, or Secret Garden, in the back. Walk around the beautiful grounds on your own or as part of a guided tour.
