May 7th 2013 12:24AM Thanks for the heads up! I must be so unaccustomed to rederring to Namdae-mun that I got all mixed up.
Mar 26th 2013 8:09PM This is one of my favorite areas in Seoul, right next to Gyeongbok Palace, around the corner from the biggest bookstore in Korea and a short walk from the amazing Chyeonggye Stream.
Feb 23rd 2013 3:20AM Good question.
From Sadang Station, take exit 4 and go straight out from there. Continue straight as the sidewalk and the side-road go up a hill and make your first right. Continue straight on this road, staying with it as it curves. After 10 to 15 minutes of walking you'll see a sign marking that you have entered the temple grounds.
Hope that helped!
Feb 20th 2013 6:17PM I always seem to switch around the g and p when it comes to that specific romanization. Same goes for 여의도 with all of its vowels. Thanks pointing that out! I've updated the post.
Feb 17th 2013 5:23AM You can do so by calling Seoul Information's "Dasan 120" hotline, dial 120 from any phone and report it to the multi-ligual staff. Great question! I've updated the post with this information.
Dec 11th 2012 6:38PM They certainly aren't world class beaches, but they are a quite nice retreat from the city in the summertime. I definitely agree that Seoul needs A LOT more trashcans and that it lacks tourist attractions (of which I think Tokyo truly lacks as well, it's a much better place to live), but I think that Seoul is coming into its own with other things to offer such as live music, shopping, food, renovated temples, museums and festivals. It is also getting better every year.
