Welcome to Seoul CS group! Seoul, the capital of South Korea, is one of the biggest, busiest cities in the world. It had been as a capital for more than 600 years from Joseon Dynasty (est. 1392). With the vivid life of more than 10 million Seoulites, enjoy the Past and Present, Modern and History of this lovely city.

We usually get together once a week as a weekly meeting, and usually there's at least one other thing happening every week. Check the board, and if you don't see a thread or Activity about it, organize one yourself!

If you are flexible and want to find out where exactly the rain clouds are in the country you can check it out at;Rain radar.

For any questions regarding transportation, there is a great English speakíng help line you can call (02-1330).

The best online map of Seoul can be found at Daum;

The subway system in Seoul is very convenient and inexpensive. New stations and lines are open pretty frequently so it's therefore not so easy to find the latest subway map. Press at the link below to find the latest version. TIP: If you have an iPOD you can download an application for free which has the same great search function as the link below.
