Day Twelve and Thirteen

Back to Seoul

Two days in one as yesterday was a travel day (from Jeju Island back to Seoul) and we didn't get a chance to take a lot of photos. After we landed we visited the Sungnyemun Gate near our hotel.

On our way back to the hotel we wandered across a closed market for clothes. Instead of taking all the clothes back inside at the end of the day, they just wrap them in plastic covers and call it a day.

Day Thirteen

Our final full day of the trip started out with a cup of coffee and a sandwich. After this breakfast we took the subway to the World Cup Stadium.

The World Cup Stadium is surrounded by beautiful parks, one of them is "Haneul Park", a former trash dump.

From this park it's possible to visit other parks in the neighborhood, they are all connected. This other park is a former water treatment facility called "Seonyudo Park".

The basins of the former facility are now used for floating botanic gardens and other plants.
