Photodiary: Chuseok in Seoul


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Chuseok is the Harvest Festival time in Seoul and is celebrated much like Christmas in Europe. Millions of poor souls leave the modernised metropolis of Seoul and head out in dire traffic jams to visit family all over Korea. Journey-times double and treble and my thoughts are not those of envy. It’s great for me as Seoul is less busy as are the surrounding mountains.  This is my photo diary of the four days in Jongno, Chungmuro, Myeondong and Inwangsan Mountain.
