Field Snapshots: Something old, something new in Seoul, South Korea (19 February 2018)

I didn’t do much on the last day of my February vacation in Korea, so let’s close the book on this journey by assembling a simple photopost. Now if you’ve been keeping up with my blog over the past few years, you’ll know that I’ve seen these places before … but then again, I can’t seem to tire of anything that Seoul has to offer.

On my way to meet a local acquaintance for breakfast, I passed the grande dame of Seoul’s monumental Joseon-era city gates: Sungnyemun (숭례문), perhaps more popularly known as Namdaemun (남대문). I’ve written about this landmark in detail before – click here to read more – so let’s just have a look at the picture.

I walked along the same street after breakfast, by which time the sun had risen higher and thrown more light upon the scene.

To kill off the last couple of hours or so before my homeward flight, I paid another visit to one of my favourite places in Seoul: the National Museum of Korea (국립중앙박물관, Gungnip Jung-ang Bangmulgwan). I usually swing by whenever I happen to be in Seoul – click here to read about my previous visits – so I won’t say more on this occasion. Let’s jump straight to the pictures.

Back soon, I hope. ^^
