I’m living in Yeongtong District, a small part of the much larger city of Suwon. Although the city it’s home to about one million people, my neighborhood feels like a town. The streets are fairly quiet, there are lots of families, restaurants and coffee shops. It’s also spectacularly green right now, but that will change soon.
There is still an impressive nightlife- Suwon is home to about 11 universities, and an army base. Add that to the Korean drinking culture, and even on a Tuesday night the bars are pretty crowded.
