In a city of 25 million people, a green oasis might seem like a utopian wish. Seoul however has done an amazing job of creating parks, ponds and digging up rivers to create green lungs in the asphalt jungle. One result of the “think green”-mentality is the repurposing of the landfill by the World Cup Stadium, that was turned into a park a decade ago. Haneul Park to be specific. Sunday morning we headed over to take stroll among the tall eulalia grass that grow there in the fall. Taking a break from the busy city life and breathing in fresh air proved to be the perfect way to end a very long, but exciting, week.
What’s your favorite green lung in the big city?
