Seoul Part 1September 20, 2019 in South Korea ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C
We had a bit of a rough start in Seoul as the hostel we'd booked in advance turned out to be disgusting. But, after only one unpleasant night we had our money back, moved into a nice little studio flat and could get on with enjoying ourselves.
We had a long walk around starting at the Seoullo 7017 Park, which is a bit like the Skyline in New York, an old overpass converted into a long park with great views of the city. From there we saw our first Korean protest, there were loads of people marching up the road with Korean and American flags shouting a lot. We aren't quite sure what it was all about but we had a great view of it.
Afterwards we went to a market where you can buy absolutely anything including street food and batteries for your camera.
We also went to Cheonggyecheon Stream which runs between some of the biggest skyscrapers but is a surprisingly calm and relaxing place to be.Read more
