The Olympic event next year will give South Korea worldwide recognition and publicity. The government has built a new high-speed railway for the convenience of people traveling across the country to watch the Games.

Also, the Seoullo 7017 and the Seoul Sky have already garnered much attention. Opened in May 2017, Seoullo 7017 or Skygarden is a pedestrian highway built atop an abandoned highway crossing. It remains lit at night, inviting people to enjoy the night views of the city. You will also find the outlets of various restaurants along the pathway.
