    The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) recommends 20 new exciting venues in Seoul including facilities, parks and festivals for fall and disclosed a Pretty Map of Seoul containing all of those spots. The 20 locations included in the Pretty Map of Seoul feature ① 8 historic and cultural sites, ② 8 scientific and economic spots, ③ and 4 urban or architectural spots to open between 2017 and 2018.

    Noteworthy are Deoksugung Stonewall Walkway which opened up a 100m section for the first time since the British Embassy occupied the spot in 60 years, Oil Tank Culture Park which was built through regeneration of the old Mapo Oil Depot that had been strictly prohibited from public access over the past 41 years, and Yeouido Underground Bunker which remodeled a secret bunker made in the 70s into an exhibition space. These hereto restricted zones were either opened to the public or transformed into a new space through urban regeneration to provide a fun experience for visitors.

    The SMG also provides customized recommendations for families with children, lovers, and friends out of the 20 spots. If you are a family group, check out Hangang Hamsang Park that will open in October at Mangwon Hangang Park, Seoul Science Center which opened last May, and Seoullo 7017 that is becoming a new hot spot in the city with over 3.8 million visitors in 100 days.

    For lovers, walk the Deoksugung Stonewall Walkway and check out the newly opened 100m section. The new section is quieter with more curves compared to the Seosomun Stonewall Walkway that connects Daehanmun Gate to Jeong-dong.
