In the past fifty years, Seoul has risen from the capital of a lesser-known nation to be one of the biggest metropolitan cities in the world. Home to a population greater to even that of New York City, the city hosts approximately 10 billion people and is a blend of the old and new. It seamlessly connects traditional palaces with modern highways and architecture which blends into an appeal specific to Seoul. As the demographic of Seoul diversifies, the city continues to grow to accommodate the growth and comfort of all who choose to visit or stay. Seoul truly is a city that never sleeps and therefore is rich with resources that the delegation can tap into upon the cultural excursion. The Han River, the American Center Korea, Gyeongbok-gung, and Seodaemun Prison are but a few places from a vast variety of places Seoul has to offer.
