Seoul (Day 1): Cheonggyecheon and Myongdong – modern Seoul

The old, traditional houses of Bukchon are lovely, but most of Seoul is super urban and very modern. It’s a fun, vibrant city that feels surprisingly familiar and very clean.

Samsung owns this building.
I feel like it should be the setting for the climactic
fight sequence in an action movie.
This river walk apparently used to be covered by a highway.  It’s lovely now.
I love how the English signs make sense, but only kind of.
Standing at the intersection of two busy pedestrian streets in the lively
shopping district of Myongdon.  Here’s a view to the right.
And a view straight ahead.
To the left.
And behind.
I love the cacophony of colors and signs.
