Today we explored the center of Seoul. We didn’t have to take the subway because our hotel is located in the area itself.
Our first stop was the Myeong-dong shopping area, where I finally found Korean souvenirs for sale.
It’s a Sunday so we also decided to visit the Myeong-dong Cathedral.
A little bit far from Myeong-dong, but still in the city center, is the city hall area. The Seoul City Hall is the most modern-looking city hall I’ve ever seen.
In front of the city hall is Seoul Plaza, where there is currently an ice skating rink. I didn’t skate because I didn’t want to embarrass myself.
But I did play with the snow just outside the skating rink. I was the only adult but for me it was less embarrassing than falling on my ass in the skating rink.
