The Best Captions for Seoul
Seoul is the capital of South Korea and proudly serves as the home of five UNESCO World Heritage sites. It’s a very old city. The site has been settled for thousands of years and has a rich history on display within its borders. Today, Seoul is an important hub in the region for IT and electronics assembly, but it still maintains a traditional vibe that appeals to travelers.
There’s little you can’t find in Seoul. However, you should definitely plan on visiting Everland Park while you’re there. There are traditional markets all around Seoul which present perfect opportunities for photos as well. Below are some must-see sites along with a few captions for each. Focus on enjoying your time in Seoul, but bring back lots of pictures too.
Everland is the biggest theme park in Korea and only a short drive from Seoul. Foreigners won’t feel out of place here and it’s a good way to start a visit at your own pace. There are countless great photo ops all around. There’s an entire area dedicated to Pandas in Zootopia. You can take some great pictures at the Four Season Garden, a European style garden and plant nursery. If you’re visiting in late March, you may be there to see the tulip festival as well.
The sheer scope of Everland is somewhat intimidating, and you probably won’t manage to see it all in one day, but don’t let that stop you. A rollercoaster ride might be just what you need to get energized for the rest of your stay.

The Myeongdong neighborhood is a great place to regain your strength after arriving in Korea with a little shopping. It’s the main commercial district in the city. Department stores and boutique shops dot every corner and street. Even if you’re not looking to spend a lot of money during your stay, there are plenty of things to do in Myeongdong.
The streets are always bustling with people and energy. Just about anywhere you’ll find a great shot of the city in full swing. The neon lights and advertisements will give a tense and exciting feeling to your pictures, so caption accordingly. For a good time and some solid laughs, watch a performance at the NANTA theater. You can only take pictures during the curtain call, but the performance is well worth it.
There is even a gothic style cathedral in the form of the Myeongdong Cathedral, an interesting departure from the rest of the architecture in the area.

The War Memorial of Korea
An important educational site in the city, this memorial documents the history of war efforts in Korea as far back as it existed. The locals have a lot of respect for this place, so try to evoke solemn dignity with your pictures and captions. Visiting the memorial is free. You’ll only pay for parking, making it well worth an afternoon.
The War Memorial is divided into several halls, each dedicated to a different aspect of military history. The Memorial Hall honors the people involved in past wars. Other halls focus on the Korean War, new military technologies, and expeditionary forces respectively. Try to take pictures without flash, both out of respect and to convey the mood.
