Have you ever been to a place where the past, present, and future collide—and somehow magically it creates an aesthetic that works?

In societies with ancient roots, modern architecture can seem out of place. But there’s one city where you can see ancient temples and marvel at beautifully designed towers. You can be in the city but still sense nature all around you. And, you can pop into tiny local restaurants that have been serving the same delicious recipes for generations while also tickling your taste buds with modern street foods.

If you haven’t added the city of Seoul, South Korea, to your bucket list, then it’s about time you do!
