The soul of Seoul-Korea

DSC02569JGP

Seoul, S. Korea has made it as one of my favourite cities in the world. The city is clean and beautiful. Full of culture, yet still feels futuristic. The people are friendly and always willing to help a tourist, in need. I think it would be an excellent city to visit,for a first trip to Asia. Its very well connected with easy to use subway system. (Use the subway app)

People are friendly and the city has so much to offer, from amazing architecture, to traditional homes, to advance subway systems to traditional markets. It’s a big mix of old and new coexisting with each other,in a very balanced way. While in Seoul, I never felt unsafe. In many cities you travel to, you may feel like people are preying on you. They know they can take advantage of you because you are a tourist. I have never felt that way in Korea. Koreans make travel very simple. In fact it feels much like traveling through a Canadian City, but maybe safer.

Im sad to be leaving Seoul, considering how much I’ve enjoyed it. But I know that one day and hopefully soon I will return to this amazing city.  If you are considering a quick trip to Asia and not sure where to go, I highly suggest that you go to Seoul and check it out. Heres a few of the sites that I visited while in Seoul.

This is Nuclear Streak. It was at this restaurant that Mat and I got interviewed by local television. They asked what we thought of the food and it was awesome!
