Nowon

Summer Sunset


A wise photography teacher I once had long ago told me to turn around when shooting a sunset. It's true sometimes the light is even more immaculate.


Near the Dongbu Expressway ... A River

Nearby Nowon is a long freeway that connects the rest of Seoul to this Northeastern portion. It is called the Dongbu Expressway, and is notorious for being slow. It runs parallel next to a river, and I recall the times when I would ride with my ex, how the scenery was pleasant to watch.

Since I live nearby such a feature I figured it would be wise to get out and see it, considering I didn't go at all last year.

I found a smaller stream that connects to the river and so walked down it till it merged with the big path next to the river.

The five places in Seoul you're not partying at - yet

When it comes to partying, Hongdae or Itaewon are the two areas that come to mind. They cater to foreigners, offer cheap drink specials, and are the places to see lots of other foreigners. If you're tired of being catered to, however, here are 5 areas where the locals go to get their party on.

As a general rule, you won't stay out partying all night unless you're in Hongdae or Itaewon. Enough of those places stay open until the subways start up again, but few places in other areas will. If you're deadset on taking the first morning subway home, however, it can be done. Another thing to remember: most places will have tables and booths for groups. A couple will be fine, but you'll have a better time with a larger group - say, 4 to 6 people.
