    Will most likely be staying at a hotel since it's a business trip. Food? Shopping? Sight seeing?

    take a walk up namsan hill for a great view of the city at sunset. it's good exercise. (there's a lift you can take on one side of the hill.)

    and go to cheongyecheon canal and just sit there to watch the carp and the birds... surprisingly peaceful and restful in the middle of a bustling city.

    Hi Airbnb has expanded beyond accommodations. They will set you up with local to share local experience like a night hike then authentic soju and food afterward , Bike tour with a local cyclist, or a perfume class with a local maker. Here take a look https://www.airbnb.com/s/Seoul--South-Korea/experiences?checkin=2017-09-21&checkout=2017-09-25&guests=3&adults=3&allow_override[]=&s_tag=2ZQLQRKu&ib=true

    Might not be able to immerse that much, will only be available after 5PM, and maybe more than half a day on the 3rd day, but that's reserved for shopping for pasalubong, LOL! Thanks for the tip!

    I stayed in Hotel 28 last year in Myeongdong. If you love cinema, you will love staying here!
    I'm thinking of going back this year for the Busan International Film Festival.
