Seoul City Hall

Many city sightseeing tours of the Korean capital include a stop at the building, and travelers who wish to visit independently can pick up a self-guided tour brochure inside the building. Evening tours of the city often include city hall for a chance to see it (and the plaza) illuminated at night.
