Seongnam is one of Seoul’s satellite cities and ranks in the top 10 cities of South Korea in terms of size. It was the first planned city in Korea’s history, and its purpose was for concentrating electronic, textile, and petrochemical facilities. Seongnam is a destination worthy of both the business and leisure traveler.
Seongnam offers a number of sites that will appeal to the cultural explorer. Seongnam Arts Center is certainly a favorite with travelers for its range of exhibitions and concerts. Another is the Book Theme Park – found within Yuldong Park
– that comes complete with sculptures, an outdoor performance hall, and a book-shaped pond. More natural respite can be found at the Tancheon Streamside, Jungang Park, and Shingu Botanic Garden
. For some local dining, head to Jeongja-dong Café Street.
