I love living in Seoul, but every now and then it's nice to get out of the city that holds more than ten million people
. Ten. Million. People. To put it in a way the Americans can understand, there are more people living in One City than there are in 43 different states. Include the area connected via the Seoul subway system (what Wikipedia calls the Seoul National Capital Area
), and you get more people than live in New York City - albeit in less a third of the area. Needless to say, it's nice to stretch your arms and not hit 10 Koreans along the way.
