Seodaemun Prison in Seoul

With the kids in vacation, getting up late, keeping me busy and messing up by perfect schedules, I decided enough is enough and pulled them out of the home to experience a bit of the Korean heritage. We just happened to choose to go and visit the Seodaemun prison which was built by the Japanese to confine the Korean freedom fighters. It was an interesting but somber experience.

Destination: Seosomun Park



Every now and then I get a question asking me if I always give positive ratings to the destinations I visit. My answer? Not always and not in every case, but in general I'm very impressed with Korea's selections of places to see. While my usual high expectations haven't changed much since I started keeping the taeguk ratings (see here for more information), this is one place that is currently better for the locals than the tourists.
