Yeoido Island, lake Seokchon, the palaces, and Seoul Forest are good places to see the cherry blossoms in the spring.

CGV Korea’s Sweetbox theaters have loveseats instead of the usual one-person seats. You’ll be surprised by how easier it is to cuddle without the armrest. CGV also offers 4D or 4DX movies.

3. There are so many amazing viewpoints

N Seoul Tower is one of the iconic destinations in Seoul, and equally popular for its love locks for couples. Look over the entire city on top of Seoul Tower in Yongsan or Lotte World Tower in Jamsil.

An alternative to the bird’s eye city view is a view of N Seoul Tower and Namsan park. Cafes and bars on top of Gyungridangil in Itaewon offer a gorgeous view of the tower and the mountain, and so does up on the stairs of the National Museum of Korea in Ichon-dong.

4. The Hangang river park is a Seoul staple

It’s so romantic to walk around the park holding hands or picnic on the green grass day and night. The river parks in Yeouido and Banpo are hosting Bamdokkaebi (Goblin) night market until October. Other locations include Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), Cheonggyecheon stream, Oil Tank Culture Park and Cheonggye Plaza. Here’s more information and photos.

5. You can get anywhere with ease

The public transportation, especially the subway, is world’s top in Seoul. There’s also Uber, Lyft and Tada, a Korean ride share service.

If there’s Citi Bike in New York City, Seoul has Ttareungi. Here’s how to rent this Seoul bike.
