Romantic Things to Do in Seoul
Couple culture is strong in Seoul, and you’ll find no shortage of options for a romantic tour around town or a spicy date night. From a romantic cruise to a relaxing spa day, here are some of the Korean capital’s best romantic activities.
Climb Namsan Tower
Take your romance to new heights by heading to the top of Namsan Tower (N Seoul Tower). Climb or ride the cable car to the top, and soak up the panoramic views from the 360-degree observation deck. Visit in the evening to up the romance factor.
Have a Spa Day
Experience a Korean tradition with your special someone as you treat each other to a day at an authentic jjimjilbang (Korean spa). Soak in a hot pool, relax in a sauna, and rejuvenate with a full-body scrub or oil massage.
Heat Things Up with a Cooking Class
Couples that cook together stay together. A cooking class in a traditional Korean house puts a new twist on the typical dinner-for-two date. Shop at a local market and work together to prepare traditional Korean dishes, with recipes you can take home with you for future date nights.
Be a Kid Again
Whether getting an adrenaline rush on the rides at Lotte World or snapping silly photos of each other at the quirky Trick Eye Museum, you’re sure to have a good time when you get in touch with your inner child.

Cruise the Han River
Being out on the water is undeniably romantic, so spend an evening cruising the waters of the Han River through the heart of Seoul. Watch the city lights reflect off the gentle waves and see Seoul’s landmarks illuminated by night.
