Seoul on Foot: Exploring the Capital City of South Korea

On our last day in South Korea, I decided to not focus on a specific tourist spot. Knowing that locales are better when experienced on foot, I decided to instead explore Seoul and just take photos of things that I see along the way. This turned out to be a good decision as Seoul is such a gorgeous city and there are basically tons to see and shoot.

Here are some of my photos of my exploration of Seoul – South Korean’s gorgeous capital city.
