One of my most recent adventures with KKday was to the dynamic metropolis of Seoul in South Korea — a bustling city that not only holds a strong presence in Asia but also in the rest of the world. Sure enough, this influence is largely due to Seoul’s cutting-edge technology, strong economy, and vibrant culture (I’m sure that a majority of you have encountered K-pop, K-dramas, Korean cosmetics, and Korean food among many others for at least once in your life!)
TRIVIA: Seoul has 25 districts (gu) that are further subdivided into 522 sub-districts (dong), and with the Han River that runs through the middle of the city, there are distinct 2 sections: Gangbuk (northern area that’s more traditional) and Gangnam (southern area that’s more modern). But… asking for the “center” of this whole metropolitan area is a difficult thing to answer because Seoul’s districts can somehow each function like a city center.
It actually baffles me that I didn’t go to Seoul sooner; nevertheless, the important things is, I’ve finally seen this city for myself and well… I just LOVED it! I am totally smitten about how Seoul is constantly brimming with incredible things of sorts — all of which are enough to satisfy any kind of traveler out there.
