Once upon a time, the Tokyo Tower was the main “tall structure you gotta see” when you visit Tokyo. It was built as a broadcasting tower and became the tallest free-standing tower in 1958, surpassing the Eiffel Tower in height. Of course 1958 was a long time ago and many more high-rise buildings have sprung up, challenging the broadcasting effectiveness of Tokyo Tower. Continue reading “Tokyo 2016: Tokyo Tower (Gallery)”

A defining characteristic of these streets is probably the messy power lines overhead. Among the alleys, narrow roads, shopping and shops, they really add a lot of character to the place. – WY

There are many skin-care shops in Myeongdong. This attractive wall of greenery is of course the facade for one such store. An unexpectedly popular attraction for photographs and selfies.

Coffee culture is very strong in Seoul. Or perhaps “cafe culture” is a more accurate description. 😉 There is no lack of atmospheric cafes and dessert shops for people to lounge in, drink stuff, munch stuff, do stuff, and look cool doing all that. In the streets of Myeongdong, such cafes abound everywhere. Hippies rejoice!

I last visited Seoul in 2014. I was back again this year from mid-to-late April on a holiday. You would expect that things would not change much within two years. However, I was mistaken. To summarize, two years ago I thought Seoul was an impressive modern city – colourful, advanced, luxurious and extravagant (when you want to find it), rich with a unique blend of east-west ambiance, lots of shopping, all that good stuff.

I could not expect that within a space of only two years, all these things could get even more intense! More advanced, more colourful, more shopping, more luxurious and extravagant, more impressive, wow! Continue reading “Photo Album 2016 Week 19: Streets Of Myeongdong 2016 (1)”
