Korea Suwon Food Curry

Exploring the Suwon station area

Before we get into it, if you read my site in the blog fashion of newest post first, oldest post last which it defaults to if you use the search, all posts, featured posts etc. then this is the 1000th post. I only make posts when I am on a holiday, almost all of them from overseas, and generally 2 posts a day, so that is 500 days overseas typing this crap and uploading shit photos for my own viewing pleasure. Congratulations.

Back to the station, and that is exactly where I went this evening, back to the main station. When I arrived in Suwon at this station I stayed indoors and underground so I had missed most of it, but it is a very nice, very busy area. More so than the part of town I am staying at.
There are huge modern department stores, alleyways, restaurant filled streets, lots of people, and probably a great sunset in pollution free skies if I had of stayed out past 8pm.
So Suwon is a nice place, with lots to see and do, tomorrow I will ignore all of that and go north of the city and climb a few small mountains.

Shopping street conveniently covered in shade cloth. There is a traditional market area around the station as well, but that is more of a morning thing.

I was starving, so it was time for an early dinner of brown sludge and rice. I asked for stupid spicy, and it was. I was thrilled by this. By asked I mean I selected the maximum number of chillis on the ordering screen which came with some additional warnings.


Korea-Suwon-Food-Curry - Still going with the election. An army of 1's. Some non official members are beating drums and giving suspicious looking salutes behind me.

Part of the Lotte megaplex is like an Australian style mall, except the top floor is at least 50 restaurants. Some formal, some not so formal and more inviting to a pleb like me. Maybe I will come back for dinner tomorrow night.


Korea-Suwon-Food-Curry - The Lotte department store basement is quiet, but nice. I think it is very new. More good places to eat. No eggslut to be seen though.

It took me at least 10 goes to line this up, I am half crouching to get the sign above my enormous head. This was near the exit to the subway, so thousands of people were streaming past watching me pull off this ridiculous feat.

Back at my hotel, and to end my early evening, a hike up 96 stairs (6 x groups of 16). Another great feature of Korea, free exercise opportunities all the time.
