While travelling in Asia on a media fellowship last year I spent time in Seoul, South Korea reporting on international education for The Province. In between interviews I had time to explore the city. I was captivated by Seoul’s urban exotic charms: ancient palaces in view of skyscrapers, neon megamalls encircled by rustic food stalls, and most of all the city’s round-the-clock street carnival of shopping, eating and carousing into the early hours. Explore the sights and scenes of the city with a read of my latest travel piece, Exotic Seoul: Ancient Palaces to Neon Modernity, published in The Vancouver Sun, with photos in this gallery.
