Located on both sides of the Han River, Seoul has a fascinating and long history which can be witnessed in the ancient neighborhoods that are nestled amongst the gleaming towers of the city’s current skyline.

Despite offering a low cost of living compared to other major cities around the world, Seoul is a thoroughly modern destination with excellent infrastructure. Seoul remains a popular destination for TEFL teachers as it enables them to have a high standard of living no matter which part of the city they choose to live in.

Seoul is a cosmopolitan destination with over 700,000 foreigners calling the city home. Multi-national areas such as Itaewon and Hannam offer visitors the tastes of home while living side-by-side with the locals. Throughout your time in Seoul, you will have the opportunity to sample the delight that is Korean cuisine and there are numerous restaurants where you can try out some the country’s most delicious dishes.

With an excellent transport infrastructure, Seoul is an easy city to get around and there are many easy ways to get out of the city using the subway system or the KTX bullet train. Nowhere in the country is more than a few hours away from Seoul.

Despite being a big city, Seoul is not an intimidating one and the locals are keen for foreign visitors to feel welcome and get a positive impression of the city and country as a whole.
