Seoul is one of Asia’s most modern and developed cities. It is considered the flagship city of the Asian Tigers, the miracles of Asian economic development. In Seoul, cutting-edge technology meets ancient traditions: it is home both to the technology giants Samsung and LG as well as several UNESCO world heritage sites. It has also been voted as one of the top 10 student cities in the world, getting praise for its diversity of activities and opportunities while scoring points for its safety and convenience as well.
