Day 1: Seoul
We landed this morning around 6am. Hostel was in the middle of the city so we took the metro to Seoul Station (center) and then caught another one to reach the station near hostel. We found the hostel very easily. But then I was dead tired and get-lagged. Only after good food at Sinseon Seolleongtang we decided to do city fort walk.
We took the bus to Changuimun Gate. We had to fill up and application and show passport at Tourist Center to get a pass to walk inside city wall. It’s still an active fort (military area), so photo opportunity is limited. I didn’t take many but enjoyed the walk. By the time we finished walk we were dead tired. Fortunately we reached a café on Samcheong-ro for a coffee and we were done for the day. Evening we walked around Myeongdong for some good street food and orange juice.
All in all I like the city. Its different from any city I have been until now. Tomorrow should be fun.
