Sejong-daero is Seoul’s main sightseeing street. It’s like Washington DC’s National mall.

Sejong-daero has a number of landmarks. The street stretches from the Gyeongbokgung to the King Sejong Statue to Deoksugung to the Namdaemun Gate to Myeong-dong. It can provide a day filled with activity that doesn’t involve booze. I just probably loss 90% of my readers with that statement.
The two mile strip is a sightseeing gallery. The crowded street is filled with things to see in Seoul. It contains about 15% of Seoul’s significant sightseeing landmarks. There’s the other 75% is spread across Seoul. Seoul is a very large city. It reminds me of Los Angeles without the hideous traffic and smog. However, both cities are filled with drunks.
Here are the significant landmarks to check out:
- Gyeongbokgung – The palace has been the main palace since the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty. It faces the Namdaemun Gate.
- Namdaemun Gate – The majestic gate is opposite of the Gyeongbokgung Palace.
- Deoksugung – The second palace in the vicinity. The only one with Western architecture inside of it.
- Gwanghwamun Plaza – The plaza contains the beloved King Sejong statue. The Korean king made huge investments in the Korean military, science, infrastructure and seek prosperity for the Korean people.
- Namdaemun – The lively night life area is filled with bars and restaurants.
- Myeong-dong – It’s one of Seoul’s most popular shopping destinations. It’s similar to Gangnam but economically conscious people. In other words, broke people.
- Seoul’s Metropolitan Library & City Hall – The futuristic city hall is next to a historic Korean architecture relic.
That’s a quick list of things to check out on Seoul’s Sejong-daero. The exploration could easily take up a day. However, with adequate planning, it could only require a drive through by the local cab driver then you’re on your way to the nearest pub.
