Seoul and Why You Should Visit

Seoul and Why You Should Visit

SEOUL, the capital of South Korea. A futuristic metropolitan city, where skyscrapers and KPOP meet royal palaces and street markets.

In just 50 years since the Korean War, Seoul has become the 10th largest city in the world and the second largest metropolitan area.

For me, Seoul feels like stepping into a parallel universe where London doesn’t exist. After spending most of my life in London, it’s easy to think that you live in the center of the universe. But I am wrong; Seoul people have their own pop culture, fashion, identity, and they don’t really care about the Western world. Megacity is one of the capitals of East Asia’s main cultural determinants along with Tokyo, Taipei and Beijing.

I found the possibility of exploring South Korea when I searched Google “the fastest internet speed in the world.” I guess it’s a pretty good reason to visit the country when your trip is paid for with the work you do online. But South Korea has many reasons why you should visit, not only including how quickly you can scroll through your Instagram feed.

I truly believe that Seoul will become a tourist destination that is increasingly popular with Western travelers in the near future, as has been done by the East.

Getting to the city from the airport is easy, just take the train non-stop or multi-stop.

The sim card data is not cheap but the range is brilliant. After arriving, I bought sim data without limits for 1 month. The price is 70,000 won (~ 50 pounds). This may sound expensive but it’s worth connecting wherever I go with unlimited data. Especially when staying in touch with my digital marketing client at home.

WHERE TO STAY

Seoul (for tourists) is basically divided into four main areas of interest; Hongdae … Read the rest

General advice on going white water rafting Bali price
With all the things I will tell you, only one thing is certain, and that is that each trip will be very different. This will depend on a number of things, such as the time of year and the company where you decide to go, because all have different starting and ending points.

But there are some things that will be similar, such as:

  • Time: pick-up time is usually from 9:00 to 9:30 (from Ubud, this might be earlier if you are in the South). The actual rafting time is between 2-2.5 hours. The expiration time is around 2:00 p.m. and you will return to Ubud at 2:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • Distance: the length of the river you will see is usually around 12-14 km. This will vary from company to company because they will choose which part of the river you can carry.
  • Lunch: lunch is always included and consists of several fruits, rice, vegetable dishes, noodle dishes (usually vegetarian as well) and meat dishes. Very basic and local food, but good too.
