Today, we visited the ever-popular Gangnam District. Gangnam is one of the districts in Seoul, South Korea. It is widely popular due to its high concentration of wealth and high standard of living. In recent years, Gangnam earned world-wide attention when the song ‘Gangnam Style’ by South Korean superstar PSY became the first video on Youtube to reach 1 billion views.
Here are some photos that I took during a lovely late afternoon stroll around this famous landmark.

The gorgeous 123-storey Lotte World Tower in Gangnam is currently the tallest building in South Korea. It is also the 5th tallest building in the whole world.

Airbnb had a fair at the grounds surrounding the tower when we got there. So we dropped by and got some free airbnb goodies!

After a quick tour, we visited a nearby street which was famous for its late-night diners. We had a sumptuous meal!
