When I had enough of ASEAN and wanted to try a big metropolitan city with modern infrastructure, i was confused between Tokyo or Seoul? After a week of research and budget constrains, I had to give Tokyo a miss as it being the costlier than Korea.
Lesser I knew that my decision was wrong, Seoul, the Capital of South Korea and home to World's 2nd most Powerful passport in 2018 didn't treat me the same way I expected. Here are my reasons :
1. None helped me take My pictures:
Agreed it's the Era of Selfie and all you need is just point your front camera and shot but at times, you really need someone to take a picture of you to get the perfect shot of that landscape behind you, the city view from the Seoul tower and what not. I had my first bitter experience when i was at N Seoul tower, asked a Korean couple to take a picture of me from the Gallery view and they without a word run away as if they saw some ghost. Here are few of my Tripod set attempt of taking pictures, the view was awesome but I do not have a good memory to cherish here.
