Seoul´s amazing urban transformation: from a poor backwater to a super modern high-tech city




Seoul in the (early) 1960s, many city slums...all gone today





downtown Seoul 1961


















in the late 1950s



Nowadays

AWSOME.....mas que fique bem claro que tudo isso só aconteceu porque o país fez uma reforma profunda no sistema educacional desde o pré até as universidades

Mas qualquer país realmente empenhado pode alcançar isso. Mesmo tratando-se de Angola, Brasil, etc...

Adorei a transformação!!

Asian cities I been to all tire me out. I usually want to disappear after about 2 weeks I stay in them including this one. The Asian concept of modernizing cities is more like Newyorkizing. I understand most South East Asian counties are small but China is building the same way.

Paris and San Francisco for e.g are as busy and packed as London but there is something about SF that is so attractive and relaxing. I have not been to Paris but they say it has an attractive vibe to it. Most people who had been in Nairobi say it has a relaxing aura about it and I can attest to it. But this city here Seoul, Tokyo, Bangkok, Taipei they drove me nuts.

The Asian city does not exist....and comparing Seoul to New York is bewildering...just because of the high-rises.

I am slightly taken aback when I read that you compare cities like Bangkok to places like Tokyo and Seoul. It is as if you buy your clothes regularly at a standard Walmart somewhere in a typical American third-tier city on the one hand and demand to get the same price for designer clothes when entering a Givenchy flagship store in classy Milan, on the other hand.

....but maybe simply tastes do differ from individual to individual.
