You have to wait a little bit before you can see the video.

Let me start with the most famous skyscraper in Seoul.
It is the 249m tall KLI 63 Building. It was the tallest skyscraper in Asia when completed.




The building has an observation deck on the 60th floor.

Seoul is a great city. It is extreme underrated in the world.
In the next 4-6 years i will go again. ;)

Damienk: Thanks. :)
The Tower Palace is a great skyscraper.


More pics.

My hotel. The Best Western Vision Hotel.

Modern art infront of the KLI 63 Building


That`s me in on the observation deck of the KLI 63 Building.


Pics from the top.






South Koreas National Assembly building


Nice modern architecture


Near National Assembly building some people protested for the rights of blind people.
I saw around 2000 policemen because of this protest.


Some of them are very young.


Two of the people who protested for the rights of the blind. I saw only 200 of them and 10 times more police.....




Lunchtime in the CBD.


Some of the subway stations in Seoul have such TV screens.


If you ever go to Seoul you must visit the Olympic Park.


















That`s me again :)

Wow, you obviously know how to take good pictures and your camera must be a high quality SLR. Your zoomed shots look very sharp (like the picture of the helipad). These are some of the best, and clearest, shots of Seoul I've ever seen! I wonder how those people reacted when you photographed them :wink2: . Anyways, fantastic pictures Tom and thanks for sharing with us.

AWESOME pictures!
are u still in seoul?
Thanks.
No, i am back in Germany. But i will come again :)

Strifedaniel: Thank you.
I used a EOS 350D and i walked with 3 lenses. Changing was always so much work.
I used the 300mm lens when i took the people shots, so nobody was really angry at me ;)

The Cebuano Exultor: I really like Seoul. It is a great city with great people. And Seoul is fast growing. But Seoul really needs a Landmark.

Seoul feels bigger than Osaka, Hong Kong and Beijing, but smaller then Tokyo.
I am not so much into the food experiments but i eat some Korean food. It is really great but i forgot the name.


The next pics are from day 2. This was the day with the worst weather. It was so hot and the view was so bad.

After this day the weather become better and better.

The view from one of the many hills.




This podium of this skyscraper burned some days later. It was in the news. I show the pics later.


Some nice skyscrapers.






Old and new.








My favorite skyscraper in Seoul.

Excellent pictures. Thank you for showing such an excellent series of photos to show everybody how Korea really is. It is a great country with many places to see and things to do. Our country has emerged into one of the strongest and exciting places in the world.

^^^ It depends where you are in Seoul but it is generally inexpesive compared to western countries. Food and alcohol are especially inexpensive in comparison.

The metro is very cheap, western food is very expensive.
Pizza Hut is 2 times more expensive then in Germany.

The rest is on the level of Hong Kong.
Cheaper then Germany.

Smile the price of your hotel room down, as i did. ;)

Geronimo: You are right :eek:kay:

Here are the skyline shots from day 3.

Just add my voice to the chorus of praise for your photos.

Fantastic, you saw more of Seoul in a few days than I have seen in the past 18 months. Great stuff, Tom.

How long were you in Seoul, btw? Looks like you sure got around.

Are you a professional photographer?

What kind of camera are you using?
Thanks.

No, i am not, but i really like taking pics.

EOS 350D with 3 lenses.

Ellatur: Thank you very much
I used a tripod for the night pics or the IS of my lens for the street shots.

Sister Ray: Thanks :)
I spent 8 nights in Seoul.

Here are the normal pics from day 3.

I visited Incheon.

I had a private train to Incheon :D


Incheon is a very very large city, so i was surprised that this is the Incheon station.


Incheon is the harbour of Seoul.


Chinatown in Incheon


There is a small mountain in the Harbour. The view from there is very nice.


Incheon


This bridge connects Seoul and the new airport.




The new airport is on this island.


The tower was closed >_<




Near the Mc Arthur statue.






Stealing flowers.


General Mc Arthur.




Somehow i believe Koreans love chilli.




Back in Seoul.




Namdaemun Market




I have to work again so i can`t upload the pics very fast.

Seoul's Han River

Metro Seoul is a big city, I tell you. And the road infrastructure is much more impressive than most East Asian mega-cities. It is a shame, though, that despite the Han River's large size (width-wise), it is too shallow for large ships to navigate.
