This is what an Equestrian Show looks like

My first Equestrian Show was back in Suwon Folk Village, just outside Seoul in South Korea. I didn’t really expect much from it because I thought it would be just couple of horses horsing around, like doing obstacle runs and stuff like that. What do I know about horses? Nada.

Changdeokgung Palace in Seoul

I’d suggest that you join the 1 hour and 20 minutes tour of Changdeokgung Palace in Seoul. I was impressed with our tour guide who speaks impeccable English and her knowledge about the palace itself was extensive. The tour doesn’t give you time to take pictures here and there but you

The Grandeur of Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul

Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul is South Korea’s first imperial palace. If Beijing has Forbidden City, Seoul has Gyeongbokgung Palace. If you compare both of them, they have similarities in architectural style. And for sure, they have differences, too. Both, however, are listed as UNESCO World heritage Sites. Travel Tips: Come early. When visiting Gyeongbokgung

2010 Shanghai World Expo: Asia Pavilions 2

To continue the Asia Pavilions at the ongoing Shanghai World Expo, the next countries are Nepal – Vietnam. I think it would be best to visit the Expo area at night to get really nice photos. Don’t fret, the expo closes at midnight but admittance will only be until 9:00

Building 63 and Sunset in Seoul

You all know that I do love sunset. Ask my close friends and they’ll tell you that I have a lot of sunset photos. I love the beaming rays when the sun goes down. It turns everything to gold.  Awesome! Postcard perfect! And yes, watching it is an excellent way to end the day! 

Things to see at Korean Folk Village in Suwon

I’d recommend every traveler to Seoul to visit Korean Folk Village in Suwon to get to know South Korea’s culture through dance, music, wedding traditions, etc. While there’s truth that it’s just a “tourist show”, no one can deny that this village has everything you want to know about South

Seoul Tower at Night

Sriram and I woke up at noon today. That means, we only have 4 hours of sleep. I need to get out of his apartment before his buyers will drop by his flat. He’s selling a lot of his stuff to Craigslist’s readers because he’s leaving Seoul soon.  I left his

Homo Hill in Seoul

What a monicker for a gay district, isn’t it? Before I came to Seoul, I already knew about this famous Homo Hill, the city’s gay district. The surrounding area is actually not exclusive to queer community. In fact, before reaching Homo Hill, everyone has to pass the long queue of bars,

Busan in a Day

“Dynamic Busan.” That’s how Busan is being sold to tourists. For two nights stay in this city, I didn’t exactly see how dynamic Busan is. Not even a bit. Ok fine, the bar life was dynamic! 😀 In two crazy nights I spent here with friends, I’d say that this city CAN

My first Korean Barbecue

On the day I arrived Busan, I asked my super fab couch host about Gay Busan. Though not surprised by my question, I was the one who was surprised by his answer: “What gay life? Here?” He smiled boyishly as if he doesn’t know. Well, he does know where the gay area is.

Beaches in Busan

Due to last night’s debauchery, I woke up at 11 a.m. It’s too late for sightseeing so I decided to just concentrate my exploration of the city by the seaside where I can dip my feet into the sea and see boys in their trunks and golden beach bodies. Haha!
