Seoul might not immediately come to mind when you think romantic destinations, but with ample natural beauty, cultural charms and a lively dining and nightlife scene, the home of “Gangnam Style” might just be the most underrated romantic destination in Asia.

We’re not the only ones who think so, either. Fans of the hit TV series The Bachelor will get a sneak peek at the sexier side of Seoul when Juan Pablo Galavis brings the remaining women vying for his affections to the South Korean capital. Relive your favorite romantic moments from the episode on a Viator Exclusive “The Bachelor” tour, with visits to stunning Gyeongbokgung Palace, the fascinating Korea Furniture Museum and trendy Myeongdong shopping district.

As Juan Pablo and the girls discover, Seoul has a rich heritage with dozens of stunning architectural sights. For a romantic day of exploring, take a Korean Palace and Market Tour, where you can stroll hand in hand through two of the capital’s five grand palaces, including UNESCO World Heritage-listed Changdeokgung Palace, and peruse the art and artifacts for sale in trendy Insadong Market and traditional Namdaemun Market.

Foodie-centric couples can quite literally get a taste of South Korean culture through the local cuisine on a Korean Night Food Tour. As the sun goes down and the street lamps come on, the city’s Jongno-gu district comes alive as locals and travelers hit the streets to feast on local specialties. Sample favorites, like Korean barbecue, savory seafood pancakes, spicy braised chicken and marinated tofu at several food stalls and a traditional market. Once you have a lay of the food land, you and your special someone will be well equipped to return on your own private food journey.
