Equestrian Show at Suwon Folk Village, Seoul, South Korea.

This is what an Equestrian Show looks like

My first Equestrian Show was back in Suwon Folk Village, just outside Seoul in South Korea. I didn’t really expect much from it because I thought it would be just couple of horses horsing around, like doing obstacle runs and stuff like that. What do I know about horses? Nada. I actually planned to skip […]

Changdeokgung Palace in Seoul

I’d suggest that you join the 1 hour and 20 minutes tour of Changdeokgung Palace in Seoul. I was impressed with our tour guide who speaks impeccable English and her knowledge about the palace itself was extensive. The tour doesn’t give you time to take pictures here and there but you can always go back when […]

Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul is the first imperial palace of South Korea.

The Grandeur of Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul

Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul is South Korea’s first imperial palace. If Beijing has Forbidden City, Seoul has Gyeongbokgung Palace. If you compare both of them, they have similarities in architectural style. And for sure, they have differences, too. Both, however, are listed as UNESCO World heritage Sites. Travel Tips: Come early. When visiting Gyeongbokgung Palace, make sure to come […]

2010 Shanghai World Expo: Asia Pavilions 2

To continue the Asia Pavilions at the ongoing Shanghai World Expo, the next countries are from Nepal – Vietnam. I think it would be best to visit the Expo area at night to get really nice photos. Don’t fret, the expo closes at midnight but admittance will only be until 9:00pm. So, if you are […]

The Soldiers of Gyeongbokgung Palace during the Morning Parade in Seoul, South Korea.

Spending my morning with the Soldiers of Gyeongbokgung Palace

Now that the end of this trip is getting closer, I’m beginning to feel muscle pains in my back, legs and arms. The excitement of going to places and do some touristy stuff bore me now a bit and all I want is just sleep, sleep and sleep. You know, like lying in your bed without fellow […]

Sunset at Building 63 in Seoul, South Korea.

Building 63 and Sunset in Seoul

You all know that I do love sunset. Ask my close friends and they’ll tell you that I have a lot of sunset photos. I love the beaming rays when the sun goes down. It turns everything to gold.  Awesome! Postcard perfect! And yes, watching it is an excellent way to end the day!  When in Seoul, one of […]

Things to see at Korean Folk Village in Suwon

I’d recommend every traveler to Seoul to visit Korean Folk Village in Suwon to get to know South Korea’s culture through dance, music, wedding traditions, etc. While there’s truth that it’s just a “tourist show”, no one can deny that this village has everything you want to know about South Korea. And the best thing […]

Seoul Tower at Night

Seoul Tower at Night

Sriram and I woke up at noon today. That means, we only have 4 hours of sleep. I need to get out of his apartment before his buyers will drop by his flat. He’s selling a lot of his stuff to Craigslist’s readers because he’s leaving Seoul soon.  I left his flat at 1:30 p.m. I called […]

Homo Hill in Seoul, South Korea.

Homo Hill in Seoul

What a monicker for a gay district, isn’t it? Before I came to Seoul, I already knew about this famous Homo Hill, the city’s gay district. The surrounding area is actually not exclusive to queer community. In fact, before reaching Homo Hill, everyone has to pass the long queue of bars, restaurants, clubs, hawkers and street […]

Busan, South Korea.

Busan in a Day

“Dynamic Busan.” That’s how Busan is being sold to tourists. For two nights stay in this city, I didn’t exactly see how dynamic Busan is. Not even a bit. Ok fine, the bar life was dynamic! 😀 In two crazy nights I spent here with friends, I’d say that this city CAN be dynamic! 😉 I was […]
