42 photos in Korea.

 Hello! It has been a month since I’ve arrived in Seoul and these photos detail the pretty and interesting sights that I’ve been exposed to while here.

I have tried to arrange the photos according to its colour scheme so I hope it will be easier for your viewing.

The places detailed in these photographs are Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Hongdae, Garosugil, Ihwa Mural Village, Fairytale Village, Seoul Museum of History, Chinatown and Wolmido.

Wolmido Amusement ParkThis is the theme park in Wolmido which features the famous viking ride. It was so scary and I was hanging on to dear life. However, I think that the viking ride is good in the sense that you can be super scared in one moment but you can relax in the next moment as you watch the people on the opposite side being scared out of their wits. 🙂

Seagull feeding boatA ship where you can feed birds from the deck. I am not sure why people would do that. #itsscary

Guard and Gyeongbokyung and King SejongBeautiful mountain in the landscape feat King Sejong’s statue. I like this photograph because people often focus on King Sejong’s statue but I think that the mountains in the background are equally captivating.

Qing Guan Chinatown IncheonIn Chinatown! I am Chinese and I feel that the chinatown in Korea is very different from the Chinatown in my home country. The decorations and the food they sell are vastly different.

Flower ShopAn extremely pretty florist at Samcheongdong. I think the abundance of flowers in Seoul could be the reasason why korean boyfriends have no choice  to be romantic.
