South Korea : Seoul NYE

Place: Seoul, South Korea. 2015. New Year's Eve always signifies new hope and new beginnings. 2015 NYE was one of my memorable moment, spent the night at Seoul, South Korea with 50 strangers (travellers and local) who I just met at the party. In Korea, the tradition of ringing the landmark bell marks the end of a year and simultaneously the beginning of a new one. The Bosingak Bell, located near Jonggak Station (Line 1), is the landmark bell of Seoul. Young polices on yellow vest lined up in circles for security reason. So cold, winter and minus degrees. I was tipsy when I asked my new friend to take this photo. We (foreign travellers) requested our new local friends to show us how to celebrate New Year like Korean. We went to Jjimjilbang (Korean public bathhouse) and walked to Seoul Tower to watch first sunrise of 2015. I wish I can celebrate New Year in different way every year.
