Songdo is a new business district built south of Incheon. Phase 1 opened in 2009, and the masterplan is to provide for residential, commercial, and open spaces on the 1500-acre site. As a completely new town planned from scratch, I was interested to see what progress they've made so far. It's a long way from Seoul, although still reachable by taking the subway.

I encountered some crowds in the urban park but otherwise, the streets were eeringly deserted. It's a new town planned and built entirely from scratch in recent years, so it may take some time for the residents to move in and settle down. Perhaps in another few years, I'll return to find a completely different cityscape.
