Korea Seoul Food Mall

31 March 2023

Goto mall

Seoul express bus terminal underground shopping

Tonight I went somewhere I have not been to before, the large and busy underground mall known as the Goto mall which is under the largest bus station in Seoul.
It is not too far from my hotel so I walked there. The twilight sun was quite interesting to look at, but it does get dark later than I expected, so there will not be too many night photos on this trip because I still Goto mall (bed) when fat cat tells me.

My next challenge after solving hotel dilemmas is to not get sick from the plane flight.
I am clearly a hypochondriac, but any kind of respiratory illness will either result in no hiking, or possibly going hiking with no regard to my possible future poor health and then drop dead.

And on that cheery note, some photos.

There are many brands of rental bikes and scooters littered all across the streets of Seoul. In Melbourne we only have 2 brands so we miss out on the colourful cornucopia that infinite brands brings. Such wonderful devices for drunken idiots to kill themselves and also kill a few innocent old ladies on their way to the doctor.

Once I got to the bus station are I immediately descended into the Goto mall and considered going to this poor persons food court. But I was a bit too early even for me.

The mall itself is mainly flowers and women's clothes. It is about 2km long. There are 2 parallel lanes, but also some other non affiliated underground malls running off to the sides including a very large Shinsegae department store and the bus station itself, which you shall see shortly.

I wanted to take a photo of buses so I came up to the surface and behold, cherry blossoms. Personally I am a dead leaf man myself, but if blossoms are your thing, start getting excited.

Here are some buses. Lots of buses. This is not all of them, and the station building which I did not photograph at all just to confuse everyone with my next statement is a giant brutalist monument. These are all inter city buses.


Korea-Seoul-Food-Mall - The local starbucks is well appointed, it could double as a fancy circus tent.

And for dinner, hamburg steak, with rose sauce, and cheese and an egg. And fries. Yeah.
Tomorrow is probably a real hiking day! Unless I wake up with COVID.
