Seoul has more than 10 million inhabitants. This is the fifth largest city in the world. You will find pictures of the past in Seoul with truly sumptuous royal palaces, but also the temples. You can continue your trip to Busan in South Korea. It should be 2:30 from Seoul by train. The same as in France. Busan is very different from Seoul. While this remains a big city, however, you will discover a more traditional habitat. A little bit of Japan to the gates of the country the morning calm. Bon voyage to South Korea and Seoul.
Seoul officially Seoul Special City is the capital and the largest city of South Korea. Located on the Han River, in the north-west of the country, it has a population of about eleven million inhabitants intramural and 25 620 000 in its urban area (including including Incheon) 5, which makes it the third most populous megapolis in the world after Tokyo and Mexico, and just in front of New York. In addition, the city is home to nearly half of the South Korean population. The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) is about 45 kilometers from the city center.
A major tourist destination, Seoul has three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Changdeokgung Palace, Jongmyo Shrine and several Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty. Due to its high population density, over three million vehicles are counted, resulting in daily traffic jams even after midnight. Finally, as the cultural heart of the country, Seoul is the cradle of K-pop and the spread of Korean culture around the world (hallyu). © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
