Description
Perhaps the best known of Seoul's public baths (known as jjimjilbang), Dragon Hill has earned its reputation by being anglophone and foreigner-friendly. Its location directly beside Yongsan Station ... Read more
and the famous electronics market has helped as well, leading to big crowds in the baths on weekends.

It’s a really nice giant spa. There were many baths to soak in with different temperatures ranging from cold to super hot. You can also get your back scrubbed for a fee. Then go relax in some of the rooms.

Lukewarm feeling of the place. It's spacious and has many rooms.... I didn't feel welcome at all however. I have s full back tattoo n it seemed to draw a lot of attn in the bath (gender segregated). They do have a pool n gaming as well as restaurants.

Jjimjilbangs are an upgraded version of bathhouses which, in addition to hot tubs and saunas, feature a number of different heated rooms for sweating. Dragon Hill Spa is one of the largest and famous in Seoul and is especially popular with tourists as they are accustomed and prepared for international visitors. After paying, you'll receive a locker key and cotton shirt and pants. Go to the gender-segregated changing room section, store your belongings in your locker and change into the uniforms. Then move onto where the sweat rooms are located to begin your jjimjil experience. Each of the rooms have different properties in them (charcoal, clay, jade, etc), which are supposed to have beneficial effects. In between, you can rest in the large common area, take a nap, or even grab a bite to eat and drink at the cafeteria. When you're finished with the sweat rooms, go back to the gender segregated changing room area, peel off your sweaty uniforms, and then take a quick shower before immersing yourself in the many different tubs. For the truly adventurous, opt for a paid skin scrub like the locals do in which a professional will use a special cloth to scrub away your dead skin and leave you squeaky clean from head to toe.

This isn't Seoul's best spa but it probably is its most popular, particularly for tourists. It's crowded on the weekend but large enough that you can enjoy yourself. If you're not comfortable walking around in the buff, you'll soon get over that.

Avoid weekends if you don't like crowds, but visit Dragon Hill Spa for a real jjimjilbang (Korean bath house) experience.

Not necessarily Seoul's finest spa, but one of its biggest and certainly the easiest to find, this traditional Korean public bath house is located directly outside of Yongsan Station. The atmosphere is a little hokey, with some faux-classical touches, and it can get mighty crowded on the weekend. Still, for an introduction to the Korean bathhouse experience you could do a lot worse. Pay your entrance, slip out of your clothes in the locker room, and spend a few hours sampling the various hot and cold baths and sauna rooms. If you're feeling adventurous, go in for a full-body scrub, but be forewarned that the masseurs go at it with a vengeance!

Spas are everywhere and you can use cheaper ones. This is the ultimate spa though. Floors of baths, restaurants, sleeping areas, treatments. Most of it accessible for only $10.

The main draw of The Dragon Hill Spa is that it's absolutely massive -- 7 floors of hot and cold baths, saunas, restaurants, game rooms, a nail salon, and even a putting green. It's hard to believe that it only opened in 2006, as the decor reminds one of a Vegas hotel that was super ritzy in the 1970's, but by modern standards is really just cheesy and out of touch. As with most bathhouses in Korea, it's open 24 hours and the bath areas are separated by sex. There are shared saunas where men and women can sweat it out together. It's definitely worth visiting, particularly for those who are new to jimjilbangs (Korean bath houses).
