The capital city of Seoul is South Korea’s cultural and educational heart as well as its political and economic epicenter. Located in the northwest corner of South Korea, Seoul is a mega-modern and appealingly ancient city. The central area is the most important for both sightseeing and accommodation, with Mt. Namsan forming the southern perimeter, and tourists and shoppers are well at home in Itaewon, south of Mt. Namsan. The Han River winds through the city, splitting it in two. The Gangnam-gu area on the south bank is Seoul's most exclusive neighborhood, but on the whole, the southern areas have less interest to the traveler than the historic northern neighborhoods. The border with North Korea is about 40km (25mi) from the city center.
