Seoul, the capital of the Republic of Korea, is a modern, bustling metropolis with a population of over 10 million people nestled in the mountainous northwestern region of South Korea. Seoul is headquarters to large international corporations such as Samsung, LG, Hyundai and Kia. Notable attractions include Gyeongbokgung Palace, Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Buddhist temples, and numerous shopping districts and markets. English is widely spoken by Koreans, and the ubiquitous subway and bus systems make Seoul easy to navigate.
