Seoul, "example of city planning done right" , "a place for those who know how to be busy in the day, but also value nightlife", "most underrated city on planet earth"

 

Seoul, in my humble opinion, is an example of city planning done right. A number of years ago, I actually lived in Korea’s capital for a year, and moved there from my hometown, Toronto. At the time, Toronto had two measly subway lines, while Seoul boasted 16 subway lines connected to three provinces. Moving to Seoul in 2011 was a little like moving to the future, and I adored it.

Palaces like Gyeongbokgung will wow you, but it’s the sheer variety of incredible neighborhoods that will keep you coming back for more. There’s shopping in Myeong-dong, traditional crafts in Insadong, and, of course, the ever-flashing lights of Hongdae. Korean food is also sumptuous, and if there’s a more fun way to eat with friends than Korean BBQ, then I’m unaware of it.

Seoul is a place for those who know how to be busy in the day, but also value nightlife. To me, Seoul just might be the most underrated city on planet earth.
