City Skyline Seoul South Korea
Myeongdong Seoul South Korea in September 2015 was my first visit, in the three days I covered a lot of ground & convinced myself to return in the future to see more of the country.
One of 29 bridges in Seoul South Korea
One of 29 bridges between Incheon International airport and the city.
I stayed at the Savoy Hotel in Myeongdong which is a very lively part of the city and one of Seoul’s main shopping and tourism districts.
The Savoy is in the heart of the action, right outside the door are shops, restaurants and crowds of people day and night. The room was good and the location perfect, use this link for a very good room rate.
Love this sign at me room in the Savoy Hotel
I was on the 7th floor so I hope it is a long rope. 🙂
The hotel was a little hard to find so make sure you have the right directions.
Kinnor Cafe Myeongdong Seoul South Korea
Not far from my hotel was this delightful cafe with a good breakfast and exceptional coffee. However you must visit Itaewon, one of the best restaurants streets I have ever been to in the wonderful world.
I quickly became a regular customer here.
The restaurant choices are simply mind boggling at Itaewon.
Choong Ang High School near Bukchon Hanok Village
A very attractive school building near Bukchon Hanock village.
Paris Baguette cafe
Probably the most expensive sandwich I have ever eaten. Halfway through I broke a front tooth (crown) and for the next 10 days had to endure rather unattractive photos whenever I smiled. 🙂
JD, my terrific taxi driver
I had a stroke of luck finding this friendly interesting taxi driver who spoke perfect English. He was a wealth of information regarding people and places in Seoul. Here are his phone numbers, from outside the country, 82 10 5396 8225 or within Seoul 010 5396 8225. Apart from being so helpful he has wi fi in his taxi, what a find.
Parliament house Seoul
We stopped on the way to the airport to take some photos.
What a monstrosity
This strange looking sculpture is near the airport, I had no idea what it represented when I first saw it. The JD my taxi driver explained it was a ballistic missile pointing at North Korea. He also added many females had quite a different explanation for it. 🙂
