Subways and Trains

- Andy - Wednesday, May 30th, 2007 : goo

Coming from a city (, NZ) where the public transport is horrible, expensive and has a train network that is laughable considering its the largest city in the country. Coming to I fell in love with the subway and trains. The ease, the frequentness and extensiveness of the public transport here, its something that I really appreciate, especially everytime I go back home.

good shots. going by them, seoul's public transit system looks like a mall.

jeeff: 31st May 2007 - 02:32 GMT

good thing you added that last shot, it's my favourite.

Andy: 31st May 2007 - 03:43 GMT

Thanks guys. My first post here. Maybe I'll put some more on later.
And Kricket, it gets crazier than any mall at peak times, but I love it.:)

joey: 31st May 2007 - 04:15 GMT

that last shot looks, off-peak, to me

Andy: 31st May 2007 - 05:15 GMT

The last photo is of the Seoul Station train platforms, which is the main train station. The subway at this station is underground so that's where all the people are. Nevertheless you're right, it was in the middle of the afternoon on a Sunday so very off peak.

GOOD STUFF!! a lesson for koreans to appreciate their subs~ Is dis ur official blog thingi now?

Andy: 31st May 2007 - 14:45 GMT

jane: 31st May 2007 - 15:06 GMT

Chiamattt: 31st May 2007 - 22:15 GMT

Nice shots of the subway. I am never on the subway during off-peak times. I don't think id be able to get good shots from within the train at 8am and 6:30pm. Keep posting dude!

Andy: 1st Jun 2007 - 11:45 GMT

Thanks Chiamattt. Try using your handphone to take a few? Be cool to see ones of peak time. I'd love to see some shots of the people selling stuff on the subway too. Maybe I'll try get some sometime in the future.

Brad: 1st Jun 2007 - 18:41 GMT

Those stations and trains look really nice! Like a luxury subway system or something. The stations probably don't smell like pee either.

Chiamattt: 2nd Jun 2007 - 03:32 GMT

Things look luxurious when tax dollars are spent on upkeep and people respect their surroundings.

My handphone makes a horribly loud sound when I take pictures with it, Andy.

Andy: 2nd Jun 2007 - 06:53 GMT

Yeah true, It's actually law for all handphones in Korea now to have a sound when you take a photo. (One that you cannot disable) Stick to our cameras aye?
