Seoul is a very large, modern, metropolitan city of about 20 million nestled in mountains. The citizenry live in high-rise apartment buildings and since real estate is at a premium, everything goes “up.”
New buildings and old coexist making for very interesting neighborhoods. Tiny side streets twist and turn through neighborhoods while the main arteries are wide and very busy with cars, trucks, motorcycles and scooters everywhere.
I put together this fun little video showing how busy and how commercialized it it. Without wanting to offend anyone, I have not seen this level of consumerism in America.
Enjoy this little bit of fun.
