In Photos: Seoul, South Korea Introduction


No kidding, it’s August already? And just like that, everyone else in this tiny red dot is frantically chasing the rest of the days. To complete all the things that needs to be done is not just a need here, turns out it’s a priority! Next thing you know, we’re about to rip a new calendar open.

But before we do that, let me intro a new travel series – let’s have some soul… for Seoul. Cliché, but true! Seoul, South Korea introduces a distinctive kind of soul that’s very unique among the rest of the Asian countries. I’ve visited Seoul last April for their celebrated Cherry Blossoms, and the city introduced more items that weren’t on thy bucket list.


In Seoul, there’s no frantic chasing and prioritizing too much, because everything is given generous amount of time to flourish on its own. Just like its cherry blossoms, or its Koreanovelas, or its creative sense of culture. I always tell people that I think South Korea as a whole is ALMOST a laid-back version of Japan and an upgraded version of China, which makes everything about this country a pleasant place to be remembered.


If it’s your first time to visit Seoul and you’ve heard a lot of hype and expectation on what to see, what to do, what to eat, or even what not to do, you might follow the rest of the herd on what to expect. Let me break that typecast and give you a different introduction to Seoul – here are photos of Seoul, South Korea from a frantic-less and priority-zero kind of view, a different pace and perspective to enjoy from. I've summarized the most simplistic and raw day-to-day captures of Seoul and everything there is to be observed in this soulful city.
