Accessible via Seoul's fabulous mass transit system, Bukhansan is a little slice of countryside smack dab in the middle of northern Seoul. Due to its proximity to a population of 25 million+ Seoulites, Bukhansan holds the Guinness Book of World Record for most visitors per square foot to any park in the world.
