The Secret to Seeing Seoul, Korea

Amanda in Seoul Korea

My name is Amanda Slavinsky and my city is Seoul.

I have lived in my city Seoul for almost two years.

My city is best described by these five words: sprawling, energetic, loud, fast, and bright.

The most famous thing about my city is Gangnam Style.

The best way to explore my city is by walking and using the easy to navigate (and cheap!) subway system.

When my girlfriends come for a visit, I always take them to a jjimjilbang (traditional Korean bathhouse) first because it’s a great way to relax and experience Korean culture firsthand.

The best place to take a guy on a date is Mercado Brazilian Steakhouse because it’s unlimited meat for less than $25 in an upscale environment.

When I want to have a night out I always head to Hongdae, the area around country’s most famous art college, Hongik University.

The most random thing about my city is seeing couples in completely identical outfits.
