Missing Seoul

Let my soul miss you.
It has been a year and a half since I last visited the capital of South Korea. Let’s revisit the photos I took from October of 2013 and July of 2014.
Gyeongbukgung Palace
The Gyeongbukgung Palace stands at the heart of the city. The place is a symbol to honour the country’s rich history and art despite the large advancement in globalization.
The Palace’s ceilings and roofs boast intricate patterns of art that add grandeur to the beauty it holds.


Namiseom Island (남이섬 종합휴양지)

This tiny island, around 60 km away from Seoul City is a must-see place in South Korea.
This island is a huge park where a number of Korean shows have been filmed. The line of trees shown above is best viewed during spring where leaves and cherry blossoms are in full bloom
It has a number of recreational area where people gets to rest, eat, take a stroll or even ride a bike.


Banpo Bridge

The famous rainbow bridge of Seoul features a spectacular light show from July to October.
Hangang Park offers a perfect view of the show along the Han River.


Hanok Villages


Namsan Hanok Village is a replica of the old villages of Seoul.
Bukchon Hanok Village is an actual residential area where old and historical houses where preserved.

Myeongdong Cathedral


Cathedral Church of the Virgin Mary of the Immaculate Conception.

Namsan Tower

The famous tower that sits on top of Seoul City. The Namsan Tower.
It is best to visit the place at night to get a better view of the lights of Seoul.
The 360 observatory offers a spectacular view of the city at night.


Famous Shopping Districts

Lotte Mart: For your everyday groceries
Insadong: For high-end shops and stalls and pretty malls
Namdaemun: For cheaper hall and awesome street foods
Hongdae: For girls who like artsy stuff and stylish cafes
Myeongdeong: For almost all fashion needs. (My personal favourite shopping district)

If you want a mixture of the new and the old and cheaper deals, I would suggest a quick visit to Seoul. Food is awesome and cheap. You can buy them almost anywhere. Transportation is tourist friendly, almost everything can be reached by the train. The places are unique and stylish in their own ways. And the people are really nice! If you get to visit Spring or Fall, you get a bonus of an awesome weather too!

I can’t wait to see you again next time, Seoul!
