About Seoul

We are excited to welcome you to Linux Kernel Summit 2015 in Seoul, South Korea!

This year's event is being held at the Conrad Hotel Seoul. Located in the renowned International Finance Centre (IFC) of the Yeouido Business District, the hotel and conference venue is conveniently close to Seoul's subway system, an upmarket luxury mall, and the stunning Yeouido Park.

Seoul is the capital city and largest metropolis of South Korea. Situated on the Han River and surrounded by mountains, Seoul's diverse geography offers unique views and many things to do in and around the city. 



Top 5 Things to Do in Seoul:

  1. Visit Gyeongbokgung Palace - Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace was the first of many palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty. The palace was severly damaged in the early 1900's and has been an ongoing project since 1990. Now, it is open to the public and houses the National Palace Museum of Korea and the National Folk Musuem of Korea. 
  2. Shop at the famous Namdaemun Market - Namdaemun Market is the largest traditional market in Korea and home to more than 10,000 shops! Due to the wholesale nature of the market, shoppers can comparison shop for the lowest prices on all sorts of goods.
  3. Hike along the Seoul City Wall - Originally built in 1396, the Seoul City Wall stretches for 18.6km along the ranges of 4 mountains. For sweeping views of the city, try Mt. Bugaksan!
  4. Find peace at Cheonggyecheon Stream - While it runs alongside Sejongro, one of the busiest boulevards in Seoul, Cheonggyecheon is remarkably peaceful and quiet because the stream is more tahn 15ft. below street level. It is very serene with small waterfalls and nearly two dozen bridges overhead.
  5. Visit the War Memorial of Korea - The grounds of the War Memorial were once the headquarters of the Korean Infantry. It is the world's largest memorial of its kind.
