Walkabout: Central Park Songdo, South Korea 

I had an unexpected overnight in Seoul, South Korea, while jaunting around the world. After securing a hotel on the day of arrival, something my OCD would never allow me to do. I had a free morning to explore prior to my flight home. Since I had not even planned on being in Korea, I had not researched anything to do, although the DMZ it tops on my list. Sadly, there was just not enough time to o that.

I stayed in the Songdo area which is a 10 year new International Business District, that was wholly built on 1500 acres of reclaimed land from the Yellow Sea. Across from my hotel was a really beautiful green space called Central Park, that apparently covers 10% of the IBD. It’s surrounded on three sides by majestic modern skyscrapers and the sea on the last side. Running down the middle was a meandering river, tons of hiking trails and just a lot of open space.

I had a great time wandering the park and enjoying a chilly 40• March morning.

Ok it’s still winter so the park is looking a little bleak. That being said it was a beautiful park, and a really great walk.







This was a mini-library. Just return the books when you’re done. So cool.
