Streets of Seoul

I thought I'd offer some random photos and video of my walks through the streets of Seoul. An interesting city with its own style. This post I'll simply show my visuals and comment below it. Enjoy!



This is one of the many shopping districts of Seoul. Probably the busiest area, at least the busiest I saw. Although adjacent to this street were the high end stores, the majority of the people were street shopping at the kiosks for bargains. I guess bargain hunting is universal!



I walked through the high end shops area as well, but I think I saw as many security people as I did customers. Not my bag, man. I moved on...



On to those food kiosks. But no street food for me this day, I just sucked up the atmosphere as well as the smells and visual effects.

I posted on Seoul food already:



Much like neighboring Japan, South Korea is in to cute stuff. Many stores like this can be found.



I did walk into this store. I saw these cute, what I thought, were traditional Korean dresses and thought I might pick a couple up for my grand daughter. But I had a hard time figuring out the sizes. Really? These are Big Size?


But then I finally looked at the sign on the store:



This was a store for dog clothing! I know that South Korea can be cutsie, but do they have no boundaries? Dress your dog up in a dress? Incredible!


Too cute for me....move on....




They certainly love their high end cars here, especially the Porsches. Like big cities everywhere , there's money here.



I didn't find the Korean people to be particularly religious, but I did find a small Christian presence. Here is a Catholic Church perched on the highest hill I saw in this area of the busiest part of the city.



On a Sunday morning I found this small outdoor church worshipping from this kiosk. Wow! A mobile church? Sounds like the older days in America with the traveling preachers.



This was a rare scene in South Korea. A beggar on the streets. He was the only one I encountered on this trip. In fact, this city and country stood out in my mind because of the absence of the homeless and street beggars.



This was a common scene. Many restaurants with a few patrons, but a few with very long lines! I don't care how good or cheap the food is, I would never waste 45 minutes standing in line. Not even for a $5 meal from a Michelin chef!



That's it! This is my presentation to you of my street time in Seoul, South Korea.

Great pictures. I am the same as you when it comes to waiting in line for an extended period of time. I just don’t have the patience especially when all those street food carts were there. 😊

To each their own. I’m not criticizing them, just stating an alternative opinion,

Thanks for posting these pictures for the people that won't travel to these cities gives us a perspective of how other cultures live
