Crowded in Seoul

The Megacity of Seoul alone houses over 10 million people along with 600,000 foreigners. With Seoul also being the third most visited city in the world after Paris and London, it plays hosts to a 10 million visitors every year. Almost 2/3rd of the country's population lives in Seoul. With all these statistics, it will not be hard to visualize the crowds in Seoul.

The escalators are crowed, the malls are full and apartments overflowing; There is almost always a queue for shopping, wait at the restaurants, lines to get into the subway. People everywhere, at any time. But, even with so many soju (alcohol comparable to vodka)-loving people around, Seoul is a very safe city. Women walk safe wearing whatever they want to even at late nights. Now, thats really Cool!

These are the pictures of the crowded skating rink in City Hall, Seoul.

  1. My home state of Indiana has 4,000,000 less people than your city!
    A few years ago I was privileged to have a student from South Korea. Her father was attending our local university. She amazed me because the first day of school she spoke no English, but very quickly was fluent.
