This is part of a series of posts where I look back at some of my favourite pictures from different cities that I have visited. You can read the rest of the series here.
It's another article and another positive review, I'm a big fan of Seoul. It's a nice middle ground between crazy busy old East Asian cities and more laidback modern cities. It's not the cheapest place in the world, but it's a large city and there's always something to do. If you want to check out my full review of Seoul, you can do here, and here are the 5 things I loved about Seoul (if you want a shorter read).
Up until K-pop crossed the mainstream and spawned a whole youth culture in the west, I'm not sure Seoul was at the top of many people's lists. A long way from home, and surrounded by famous cities like Hong Kong, Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing and Hanoi - Seoul was an afterthought. However, it's recently become the 9th most visited city in the world. I decided to spend a week and find out for myself just what makes Seoul so interesting. You can read by detailed review here, but here's 5 things I loved about Seoul.
