Seoul is a dense city. There’s about ten million people all packed into apartment blocks and cramped little studios. You would think there would be no room for greenery, but apparently they decided to put a whole forest in the middle of Seoul.
Seoul Forest is actually made up of five parks, spanning over 1 million meters squared. Good luck trying to see it all in one day. There’s a cultural art park, an ecological forest preserved for various woodland creatures, a wetlands field, and a rest area right by the Han river. It has its own subway station on the Bundang line.
All the kids at the park were begging their parents to take them over to see the deer.
What really amazed me was the bridge going over a highway to the park by the Han river. It stopped me in my tracks when I realized I was suspended over a busy road with a view of the entire city.
