From cutting-edge restaurants to the most stylish stores, hotels, and neighborhoods, the StyleCity series uncovers all the special places where both locals and travelers can find a vibrant urban experience. Each book is superbly designed yet ingeniously practical, with lavish photography, easy-to-read maps, and informed texts.

The first Asian city to be featured in the StyleCity series, Seoul is one of the East’s most dynamic economic and creative locales. A center for technological innovation and design, the excitement of Seoul’s artistic and digital industries attracts leading international talent and youth to its heady mix of high-tech wizardry and the traditional values of an ancient society. This very contemporary global metropolis bustles with royal cuisine and street food, historic inns, and neon-lit late-night bars— all with a distinctly Korean flavor.
