When one thinks about Asia, Seoul South Korea may not be the first place that comes to mind.
And that is a shame…
Seoul is an amazing combination of contrast, with five royal palaces from the Joseon Dynasty mixed with modern architecture and a lot of public art.
Tradition, modernity and technology coexist in perfect osmosis:
I stayed at a boutique hotel in Itaewon called IP Boutique hotel: Very modern, well located, great service… many restaurants nearby.
In Namdaemun Market you can bargain anything, even food price!
People glued to their smartphones ~ Samsung of course…
Pancakes and traditional rice cake filled with cinnamon sugar from street vendors are a must!
Small dim sum place in Jongno district.. Only the locals eat there… and me!
Give Korea a try, it’s good for the soul…
