Seoul


mov01211.mpg

Scenes from around the city, part 1.
Seoul is a very large city divided into different unique neighborhoods (identified by the "dong" suffix). Major areas we visited during our first stay include: Insa-dong, Myeong-dong, Yeouido, Apgujeong-dong, Itaewon, and Namdaemun.

Yeouido

Yeouido is an island in Seoul often compared to Manhattan. We went because I heard the park was *the* place to see cherry blossoms in April, and there might even be related festivities. Well, there were few people and even fewer cherry blossoms... but it was still a nice park.
(nevermind the fact that we originally walked to what we thought was the park but turned out to be an under-construction nature reserve... boy is *that* confusing when you can't read the signs...)

Gyeongbokgung


dsc01162.jpg

One of a few big palaces in Seoul. It's no Forbidden City, but still worth seeing. And it gets bonus points for being within walking distance of my favorite restaurant in Seoul.

DMZ


dsc01238.jpg

The one place everybody must go when visiting Korea for the first time. And everybody must make sure that their tours go to the Joint Security Area. Many do not, or they charge a lot extra to do so. We went with the USO, which is considered the best (and most affordable) by far. It includes both the JSA and Third Infiltration Tunnel (one of four tunnels discovered so far that North Korea secretly dug after the war for the purpose of invading South Korea).
