Travel and photos of Korea

There’s a great new blog about Korea, Robert Koehler Travel & Photography, started up by the editor of Seoul magazine. Robert’s also the editor/author of the city guide to Seoul I mentioned a few posts back. With incredible photos, and great info and details about places to visit, this blog looks set to become an incredible place to go for information about Korea. 

Aside from the historical places tourists may see, such as the Changdeokgung Palace (chang-duck-goong),

 if you’re into Korean food, you’ll discover the great hole-in-the-wall restaurants.

Robert’s other great passion is architecture, and he’s been known to travel half-way across the country to photograph an old building. 😉 
 
In one of his first posts, he examines the Catholic churches that were built just after the Korean War, many of them in cooperation between local members of the Catholic Church and Catholic members of the U.S. armed forces. They tend to have a very nice feeling of care and devotion. (I’m sure he’ll get around to some great temple posts!)

(All of the photos here are by Robert Koehler, and are from his blog.)

  1. Great post, thank you very much for sharing it — it’s jam-packed with wonderful information, and much to appreciate about Korea. The photography alone is worth more than a thousand words.

  2. the best thing I like about Korea is the presence of Dharma. Every culture has intersting things; and the more you learn about different cultures, the more you find the sameness of human condition, even if some things about cultures (you did not grow up with) can be of a shock. With my internet “travel” of Korea I came across the park that I wish did not exist and same goes about cirtain foods.
    If I ever go to Korea again, I would want to visit temples and places connected with Dharma teaching
