I hiked past Seoul crowds up to Samcheong Park with a view of the city between lush vegetation. But it was the early architecture I came to see, so I turned back to face the tourist buses and hoards roaming the streets to spot those tasteful houses from the past. And I wasn’t disappointed.
I had expected a chill in the air by late October, but the day was warm and sunny. Along narrow side streets tasteful wooded homes were clustered together and once I had my fill, it was time to savour the flavour of Korean food.
