I reached the hotel at 8 PM in night, the hotel room was comfortable and was equipped with everyhting I required. How would you have felt - if your hotel room window places such a view...

Insadong is a street renowned for the artifacts and antiques. Nice place to take back the souveniers from Seoul. Magnificient designs will take you deep inside the Korean culture.
I am seeing only big cars here in Seoul. All big cars and SUV's decorate the roads here. However the Daewoo "Matiz", the Cute small car still is a pleasure to be seen along with big boys.
Check out the time we 3 musketeers have while walking back to hotel. Sometimes in group, most of the times alone - nonetheless walking at the nights to my hotel used to be the most enjoying time of the day. I had the liberty of taking any turn, exploring whatever used to my way.
Weekends were occupied with outdoor activities, being a trekking enthusiast mountains used to pop out as a favored destination. There was no second thoughts as soon as I got to know about "Suraksan" and "Bukhansan" mountains. If not the mountains, there is enough activity all around to keep you occupied... continue exploring and enjoying the South Korea.
Their commitment to the cleanliness and discipline is worth appreciating and learning. Korea amicably shows that everyone has a responsibility towards society and with everyone's efforts how the countries can get transformed in a short span of time.
Kudos to the commitment in South Koreans towards their country...
