Next up, we went to Yeouido. If Gangnam is being made in comparison with Beverly Hills in California, then Yeouido is the Manhattan of Seoul. This is the home of the largest banks and financial hubs in Korea but also to major broadcasters. The city itself "yeouido" means you can have it in English. You may think that oh it's a business place, think again as it is in fact surrounded by parks. The best time to visit this place is actually spring as every year, they have a festival held there called "Hangang Yeouido Spring Flower Festival" that last for 2 long weeks. We were there on the very last day itself.
Roy brought us there. Back then, you don't see the place as a tourist destination. It's a lavish lifestyle of the young Koreans. Of course, there are pubs and bars around that area too haha.
This is the last post of my 11 days Korean trip. It stops at Day 6 as I don't know which came first. Some days we were just shopping. Hence, at some point, I may have just combined few days into one post here.
Traveling free and easy there is really important as that is when you get to really blend in and to get in touch more with the locals. I have always loved travelling free and easy. I am never a fan of a group tours as you get to travel to places of the country, you get to see, you get to eat. But, what's lacking is the localization of the country. It's really not the same. If you ask me if am I going to do this again, my answer is a definite yes.
