Korea Seoul Sinchon

27 November 2022

Sunday's are quiet

Omurice in Sinchon

I can now definitely confirm that Sunday's are quiet in Korea. I had my suspicions when I got here, then in Gwangju Sunday was quiet, Daejeon I did not notice so much, but then tonight in central Seoul, most of the food places near my hotel are shut.
That might be to do with it being a business area, and therefore a get drunk after work area. Although Daejeon I presume was the same and that did not seem any quieter than normal on Sunday, and Gwangju was quiet in the entertainment district, so clearly I have no clue what I am talking about at all.

What I can confirm is, 45,000 steps.

My outing this evening was to Sinchon, which is also the Ewha Womans University (yes, Womans, not Women's).
I spotted this area on my walk to Hongdae the other night. It was not shut, and it was a pretty nice place, if I come back to Seoul I would go back there.
I did notice a lot of hostels in the streets around the University, and a lot of tour buses dropping people off who might be Uni students returning from a day trip. Also a lot of young foreigners, not all Womans. So that was a pretty boring update, boring pics below.

Tomorrow is the last hiking day (sad face).

Found the place, I really wanted to get off at Sinchon station. The street layout is a bit confusing around here, I found myself re arriving at this point unexpectedly multiple times.


Korea-Seoul-Sinchon - The other direction from the same spot. There are some pedestrian streets and some bus only streets, and a Hyundai department store.
